Phone Support

No Dial tone

If you are a fiber customer, check if there are lights on your Optical Network Terminal (ONT):

  • If you have no lights on the ONT, check to make sure the ONT is plugged into the electrical outlet.
  • If you do have lights on the ONT, continue to the following information.

If 1 phone does not have dial tone:

  • If it is a cordless phone having issues, and you have a landline phone in your house, check to see if the landline phone has dial tone.
  • If there is dial tone on landline phone, try plugging a new or different phone into the jack of where the issue phone is located. If the new/different phone has dial tone, then your actual phone is not working and you most likely need a new phone.
  • If there is no dial tone on landline phone, call our office.

If all phones have no dial tone:

  • Try unplugging 1 phone from the jack and call your home phone with a cell phone or other phone. Repeat this with each phone that you have in your house. If the call goes through after unplugging one of the phones, the issue is with that phone jack or line cord. Please call our office to notify us.
  • If unplugging phones one by one does not work, call our office.

 

Busy Signal on Phone

  • Make sure all phones are on the hook.
  • Try unplugging 1 phone from the jack and call your home phone with a cell phone or other phone. Repeat this with each phone that you have in your house.
