Why doesnt my phone ring when I get a call on the Magic Jack.

This answer was rated:

Why doesn't my phone ring when I get a call on the Magic Jack. Since Hurricane Ike, We have moved back to our original location. Do I need to re-register this product

Josh :

Hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you

Josh :

Click on the Menu button on your softphone screen. A drop-down menu will then appear, with different options . Look to see if there is a check mark by the Do Not Disturb option. If there is, then click it again to make the check mark go away and then your phone should ring.

Josh,

JACUSTOMER-k0d8x0jt- :

Josh, there is no check mark and no do not disturb option

Josh :

OK not a problem. Do you have a different phone you can try?

JACUSTOMER-k0d8x0jt- :

yes, as soon as I can un-pack it

Josh :

Also do you have a dial tone when you pick up the phone?

Josh :

Can you dial out?

JACUSTOMER-k0d8x0jt- :

Yes on both questions

Josh :

When you have a chance, try an older phone if you have one and test it

JACUSTOMER-k0d8x0jt- :

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX have to wait until it re-charges

Josh :

OK great. Take your time. You can come back to this chat and let me know how it works

Josh :

JACUSTOMER-k0d8x0jt- :

Josh :

You are welcome

I tried calling my Magic number from my cell phone after I replaced the the Magic phone with a different one, and I got the answering service on my cell phone. At one time, (before I got the new phone) I had all the
the calls from the Magic Jack rolled over to the cell phone. Could this be the problem ?
It sounds like that could be one of the problems. I would contact MagicJack and have it stopped being forwarded.

Visit this page:

http://www.magicjack.com/techchat/

Enter "Calls are being forwarded" in the search box.

Then select "Start Chat"


You can also log into your account and change call forwarding settings:
