Static on landline phone

Hi, I recently got a new landline phone. It's set went well. But when I tried to make a call all i get is static. How do I get rid of static? I checked all the wires. What now?

STATIC ON LANDLINE.  This is not new service; however, static has gotten worse within the past weeks.

Static is caused by loose connections. Any loose connection on the system could be the issue, so check every connection and every phone jack. Often times there is an old connection in the basement that is the issue, you just gotta' spend time and check them all.
