Lately one of my telephones connected to my router has started chiming every hour or two. It just makes a short chiming sound and then stops. In addition to this I am sometimes unable to dial out to a mobile and get an engaged tone even though I later discover that the mobile I was calling wasn't being used at the time of the call. Anybody got any ideas whats going on here? Do I have a line fault?
Is there any update on that? I'm already in habit to switching off the phone, it is very annoying especially over night.
Does your phone have a 'do not disturb' feature? This is a function which keeps the phone silent for a specified time period. Unanswered calls go to answering machine. Some models allow a configuration where the phone is kept silent apart from known contacts in the address book (sometimes referred to as VIPs in some phone manuals) being allowed to ring through the 'do not disturb' period. If your phone has the feature, see if it can do anything to stop the unwanted ringing.
