No Dial Tone Yet

Hi There. Just upgraded to a new package yesterday that includes Phone service. I upgraded our router/modem to accommodate the new Phone service. Still no dial tone and it’s been over 24 hours since the upgrade. Does it normally take a period of time before we get a dial tone and service is useable? I’ve already tried plugging a phone directly into the modem and restarting the modem numerous times. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Re: No Dial Tone Yet

Did you have the modem before or after you changed service? It may need reprovisioned

Hi Andrew. Not sure which came first because they were both around the same time. We purchased the new modem to accommodate the additional speed and the voice service. The old modem did not have voice capabilities. What is reprovisioned and how would I go about getting that done? Thanks!

Calling in may be best (but presently long wait times because of the pandemic) and I’ll escalate it here and see where you get results quickest. Not to make you feel dumb, but did you plug your phone into the phone port on your modem and not the Ethernet ports (it happens a lot).

Thank you! I’m chatting with them now. We’ll see where that gets me. I called to activate new modem Saturday.

Stay with them until you get a dial tone and test both inbound and outbound calls to verify

I'm glad I was able to assist you with your no dial tone issue, @georgebalek. Looks like we just needed to associate your modem with the phone switch to get this corrected. If you ever need further assistance don't hesitate to reach out to us.
