Phones not ringing - intermittent problem

Message 1 of 4

My corded GE phones sometimes ring and other times do not ring.   (The calls go directly to Verizon voicemail.) I tested the line at and the test showed no problem with the line.  I also unplugged each phone and plugged it back in.  Also, when I hang up from a call, the phones ring once.  Are these problems related to the DSL filters? ( My DVRs and wireless internet work without problems. )  Any help would be most appreciated!

It sounds like an intermittent issue since sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't. If it wasn't happening at the time of the test, it would test fine. We would like to look at this further. I have copied your post to our private support board to get more information. Please refer all correspondences to that thread from here on out and discontinue posting on this one.
