Can you tell me a bit more about the problem please:

1) If you have multiple handsets (within the same system), does this happen with all of them?
2) Are there other phones or even a fax, outside of this system but on the same line? If so are they working properly?
3) Is this a hardwired landline , or a VOIP service (fios), or a cellular/3g gateway based service?
4) Do you have dsl service on the same line?
5) Full model of the phone(s) (printed on sticker on the base usually)
