Refer to the table below for steps to take to troubleshoot your calling features.
|Issue ||Resolution |
|I have Anonymous Call Rejection enabled, but I am still receiving out-of-area and unavailable calls. ||Anonymous Call Rejection does not block unknown or out-of-area callers. This feature only blocks callers that have Caller ID blocking. |
|I cannot dial 900 numbers. ||Cox does not support dialing a 900 / 976 number. |
|I cannot block 800 or 888 calls. ||Use Selective Call Rejection (*60) to block most numbers, including 800 numbers. |
Note: Selective Call Rejection does not currently work with the SBV5222 Motorola modem. Contact us to find out more.
|I'm having problems dialing an international number. ||When dialing an International number, it is not necessary to start your dialing with a "1" as it is replaced by the "011" code. |
|I cannot use some of my phone features. I hear a fast busy signal. ||If you hear a fast busy signal when you try using a feature, this sound means that you do not subscribe to the feature. Contact us to add the feature to your telephone services. |
|I cannot dial out. When I try, I hear beeps and clicks. ||Check your phone setting and make sure the phone is set to "Tone" and not "Pulse." |
|Why do I need to dial an area code for certain local calls? ||With the large volume of telephone numbers being used today, many area codes have been split to allow for more telephone numbers to be introduced. These new area codes are associated with routing the call to specific communities and are required to complete the call. |
