Can anyone tell me - if the dsl is workig fine but a can't get a dial tone on any phone jack is that an outside problem?
yes, i do have a dsl filter on the phone and yes i have tried multiple phones and filter combinations to rule out my equipment
A working DSL would imply that there's connectivity all the way back to the central office. There are two sides to the phone -- assume this was working just fine and it stopped -- so it's not a case of the phone coming in on the other pair? If so, then I would say it's likely a CO problem -- not even and "outside" problem -- but something back inside Verizon's network.
We have been having similar problems for 4 weeks. Right now it is working but it happens radomly. We pick up the phone...no dialtone.....sounds kinda like a another handset is off the hook but I can assure you none are. DSL continues to work. If someone calls they get just contant ringing (if a phone was off the hook this wouldn't happen). It also has been happening to several of our neibors. We live in Greenville Pennsylvania. And trying to get verizon to help is like pulling teeth. Especially a strange not always problem like this.
Yes, me too. Different jacks, different filters, different phones (even got a NEW one) and even plugged filtered phones into the Network Box. I haven't seen a solution in any of these threads. One guy did say it was "just working again" and no one would fess up to what happened. So... here's my post to join the others.... Yes, I did request service. No one showed up or called (my contact number). I called 1-800 and they said they were working on repairing a cable and did not know when it would be completed. So.. I wait... Don't worry, I'll pay my bill on time.
Verizon didn't come to my house but there was a memo/notice on my door the next day notifying me of service. My phone worked. This month I got a credit on my bill because of their Service promise...? OK? I feel as though Verizon has good service but even an automated call to say, "Repair tech will check all lines and may not need to visit your home. If corrected, your appointment will be canceled and you do not have to wait." I had no info on my repair status until it was corrected. The on-line status only stated "Open". Maybe they still are working out the kinks.
