Customer Question
I seemed to have...

I seemed to have pushed the wrong button and all my phone does is screech when I try to call or answer the phone.

Technician's Assistant: How old is the phone?

About 1 to 1/12 years old.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Yesterday. I have gone thru all of the settings and tried to get the whistle or loud sound to stop and no luck.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

Sometime last year I did this and I cannot remember what to do to stop the sound.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
