Just for your information:
We have 3 phones that all connect to the same base. One of those phones is currently missing.
The issue is it is apparently off the hook. So we can't receive calls at home until it is found. The best part is that it's apparently dead enough that the paging system won't work but yet not too dead to allow calls to come through.
I am searching and will let you know when our home phones are up and running again. Until then you're welcome to use our cell phones otherwise you'll just get incessant ringing.
