No ring

Check that the ring switch is on.


Check that incoming calls are not


barred – see page 12.


Check that you don't have too


many phones connected to your


payphone line.


Your Contour 300 Plus has a REN


of 2, check that the total REN of all


your phones doesn’t add up to more


than 4.


Each phone connected to a phone


line uses the signal that comes down


the line. The signal is only strong


enough for a few phones so you


need to make sure you don’t have


too many phones connected to the


line. The REN number is a guide


to how much of the signal your


phone uses.
