Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

I'm Greg and will do my best to assist with this issue today.

Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your phones.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) The FULL Model Number of the phone system you are working with? If this is a cordless system, that model should be printed on a sticker on the bottom or back of the MAIN base station (model should start with KX-TG).

2) What "indication" do you have that tells you the ringer is OFF?

Please REPLY using the box below and the SEND button.
*** IMPORTANT NOTE: *** ANY requests for "additional services" (such as a phone call) are OPTIONAL and sent BY THE SITE AUTOMATICALLY (and not me), and I may NOT be available by phone.
Feel free to DECLINE (close) any such offers, and continue in this text/chat form.

KX-TGA421 - Ringer Off (1) is indicated at the top of the phone in the "window"

I'm cancelling - I'm not paying $26. Thank you.
Expert:  Greg A. replied 1 month ago.

Hi again and thanks for that information.

NOTE: You MAY be seeing a request for a $26 phone call - which is OPTIONAL, and can be declined.

If you would like to continue towards a resolution based on the amount already paid (which I can not see), just let me know.

Thanks, ***** *****
