Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Can you still make outgoing calls from the Electra phone?

Is your voicemail showing signs of not working, if so, what are those signs, please?

I can make outgoing calls.
Voicemail is completely down

(I regret that I am not able to offer Live Phone Call service at this time; However, your request is still open to other Experts in this category, and one of them may pick up on it at any time.)

When someone calls in to your phone, what do they hear, please?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
When someone calls the office it just rings and rings on the customer side
On the office side the light on the phone flashes signaling a call
Expert:  Russell H. replied 11 months ago.

But no ringer sounds for the incoming call.

Regrettably I don't know how to fix that problem, since what you have is a phone system, it appears, not just a phone station.

I have Opted Out, with apologies.
