There is static on the phone line
Sorry there's an issue with static - let's get your line back to crystal-clear.
First, let's check other devices that may be close by. Oftentimes, static and other noise can be the result of other nearby electronic devices like a cell phone or cordless phone, fax or answering machine, or router.
- First, unplug the phone with static, and move it to a new jack and outlet away from other electronic devices.
- Next, plug the phone into the new jack and outlet and listen to the dial tone.
Do you still hear static?
