    Landline Phone problems

    We found out that our phone was not receiving a dial tone. We can not dial out on it nor are calls coming in. I barrowed a friends phone and plugged it in and it does not get a dial tone either.

    Yet we can plug in the cord to the xbox and it works. Do you guys have any better suggestions?


    And we are getting this from Quest along with DSL.

    your dsl filter might be bad...


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    I tried plugging in the line directly into the wall and it still does not work.

    Re: Landline Phone problems

    If there's dsl in the house, the filter has to be working or the phone won't work. I think Erik screwed it up. Just an opinion

    Re: Landline Phone problems

    have you tired a different cable between the phone and wall? Eric could have thrown the phone after some 12 year old took him out on Live and tore up an end...

    Just tried the different cable half an hour ago. On the old phone, still no dial tone. On new phone, we received a call.

    I am the man. 12 year olds--Watch out!
