Hi everyone, not a big problem but may as well ask. I have 2 phones,
just basic house phones both wired. They both ring and work OK independently
but if someone picks up the downstairs one they other goes dead
(as if it is not plugged in) fine again once the
downstairs one is finished with.
I would not think it is normal as I can be using the upstairs phone then someone picks up the downstairs one and they can speak to the person on the line but I am disconnected and have to go to the downstairs phone to continue the call.
All I can think of is the extension wiring not correct. Both my phones work when the two are used so you can actually have a three way conversation - to the annoyance of my partner when one of the children pick up the downstairs phone.
Thinking about Nontek suggestion: Do you have 'call waiting' turned on/off, because it might pay to look along those lines for an idea. Your telephone provider should be able to tell you more about this?.
