Hi Allan,

If you swap the phones around, does the problem follow the phone or does it stay on the original line?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No lines ring on these 2 phones. There is dial tone and can call out. They just don't ring.
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

Ok, so the fault is with those particular phones - if you swap in a different phone, it rings ok on the same line?

Have you adjusted the ring tone volume?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have changed the phones with other phones and they work at that location. I have checked the ring volum and set to maximum. I have 2 lines and neather line rings on these 2 phones.

Ok, then the phone may have a fault with the speaker. Does it work in loudspeaker mode?

Hi Pete, Have you checked with the other techs? You have not answered my question to fix my phones. You have had my full payment of $35.00 since July 5 and I do not have any answer. Thanks Allan
