Noises while I make calls

When I call someone or receive calls for some reason all of a sudden there's a humming/buzzing noise in the background and it wont go away. I asked a few friends and they said that someone may be splitting my landline to get free calls but id rather ask the professionals first.

Thanks

Hi, sounds more like you have a short on the line. Is it on all phones and all calls?  If it is a short it could be caused by many things..  one of your phones, your inside wiring or on the outside phone lines.

Your best bet at narrowing it down is to call 888-553-1555 option 2 and let tech support run some tests.

Hello Sean_Integra,

Do you have copper service or fios.  If it is fios you could send me a private message with your telephone number and I could run some tests on your line to try and determine what is causing your issue.  Thanks
