What phone line service do you have?

If it is 'landline' or POTS or ordinary phone line service, then I would advise you to call the phone company and ask them to do a line check for noise. It's a routine procedure, alerts them to possible issues with their service, they do it for free, and it could clear up the problem.

Land line
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

Ask the phone company to do a line check. It's the right thing to start with at least.

(If it doesn't solve the problem, let me know, at your convenience. And I like to know when my advice has helped.)
