I have dialtone.

I enter the phone number.

This is extremely frustrating.

Speaking in general, I would also recommend speaking to Tier3/Phone&Internet support over the phone to seek help with making sure:

  • The correct telephone occurence is assigned
  • Any phone # change or port assigned correctly
  • And the modem matches correctly for what we have provisioned for (i.e.: modem swap).


This should be office correctable (our end), meaning with the right employee know-how experience and access to software tools that it can be resolved remotely (over a phone call).  If it was a physical issue with the RJ11 it'd result in no dialtone, or have issues releasing call session and then result in no dialtone.


I don't know of an outage ticket offhand that the forum moderator here might be referencing (they're the paid employee role here, I'm just off-the-clock being helpful), but if that's true they'll be all over that. Outages are a big deal, and affect many customers.
