Outgoing calls not connecting
Enthusiast - Level 2
When I dial out I don't hear the ringing while waiting for the call to go through. I have a dial tone. I thought I used to hear it ring but I'm not sure. The problem is the call never connects. I've tried calling known answering machines and even fax machines and I never connect. Eventually after a long time I get the fast busy.<br><br>I do get incoming calls. And the really odd part to me is I am able to call my cell phone and that does go through.<br><br>Anyone hear of anything like this? I've tried calling Verizon but the past two nights I've been on hold for over an hour and eventually gave up. And yes I'm dialing with the area code and I've tried more than one phone. Thanks!
