Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

Can you tell me a bit more about the problem please:

1) If you have multiple handsets (within the same system), does this happen with all of them?
2) Are there other phones or even a fax, outside of this system but on the same line? If so are they working properly?
3) Is this a landline from the local phone/cable company, or a VOIP service (vonage/magicjack/etc)?

No you don't have any other phones (not part of the panasonic system)?

Can you tell me who provides the phone service?

Installed early december
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 1 month ago

Okay please complete the modem reset and let me know if you can get a dial tone or receive calls at that point

We just tried to call the land line and it rang through from several outside cell phones. The problem was intermittent whether it would ring or go direct to voice mail.
We had a neighbour call from a land line and again it went directly to voice mail.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
R u there ?
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 1 month ago

Sorry your messages just came through,

this is after the modem reboot I assume?

This symptom can indicate either a problem with the line (phone company equipment or the wiring in your home) OR a hardware failure in the base station (since the issue happens with all handsets). We most often see this type of damage to the base unit as the result of a power surge, either through the phone or power lines.

The one thing you may attempt yourself is to fully reset the system:
1) unplug both power and phone lines from the main base.
2) remove batteries from all handsets
3) wait at least 15 minutes, then restore all
4) place a handset on the main base for a minute, as if to charge
5) check for functionality, and let me know the results, please.

Hi Nathan, I did try your 5 steps but we still have the same problem. Terry
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 29 days ago
Thanks for trying. At this point we really need to test another phone on this same line. Can you hook the old phone up or borrow a basic corded or wall phone from a neighbor for a few minutes?

Hi Nathan, i have another phone and it is plugged in.
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 29 days ago

Okay so does the other phone get a dial tone (and call out) and can you receive calls in on it?

Customer reply replied 29 days ago
but there is a hum on the line
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 29 days ago

Unplug the panasonic system from the line and then test how the other phone works, primarily if it will consistently receive calls (not go direct to VM)

I am changing to this system as I am getting copies of your notes by text,response should be better. The phone has a bad hum
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 29 days ago

Yes I saw that about the hum,

Unplug the panasonic system from the line and then test how the other phone works, primarily if it will consistently receive calls (not go direct to VM)

Just tried calling the house phone from my Cel and it rang
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 29 days ago

Okay I'd suggest testing a few more times, over the course of the next hour or so, just to make sure it is working consistently.

Just called home number,voice mail kicked in from bell
Customer reply replied 29 days ago
On the new phone
Customer reply replied 29 days ago
I guess that the voice mail system is on bell. Maybe we need to shut off something on panasonic
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 29 days ago

The panasonic should still ring though, as should the extra/test phone.

Voicemail should not pick up immediately, usually only after 4 rings or more
