Line on hold message


Recently when I am using my lanline phone it will cut out of a conversation and go silent, then on the display it says "line on hold"

If I hang up and bring the call back the person will still be talking as if it didn't cut out on them so it's only on my end. Could this be a Verizon issue or an issue with the phone itself? The phone is an older one plus I have DSL internet through the same phone line which really hasn't given me any problems lately.

Thanks for your help!

My guess is it your phone.  

But remember you are asking peers here.
