phone rings once then straight to voicemail

Using comcast voice services in my office - we forward calls based on who is in charge of the phone each day. When my bosses forward to me (meaning it is supposed to ring on our office phone and not thier cell phones - should mention that the office phone and phone line we pay for through comcast are married to each other) I get one ring and then all calls go straight to voicemail. 

 

HELP! I need to be able to run the phones!

If this is Comcast Business Voice Services, you will have better luck asking in that arena.... this is the Residential Voice Service Help & Support forum.  Business Support is here:  http://businesshelp.comcast.com/help-and-support



The Support Forums are "public" forums and you should not post identifiable information (full name, account number, address, phone numbers & email addresses).  Users of these forums are Comcast customers,the same as you & me and volunteer their time to assist with the issues and/or problems that you may be experiencing.  Please ensure your post is in the correct Forum to begin with.  Please do not send me Private Messages for personal help but instead use the Forums to allow everyone to read and offer comments to assist you.  Comcast employees are identified with RED lettered User Names.

Sorry, I do not have a solution, however, I have a similar problem: Incoming call rings one short ring and stops. No caller ID is displayed. I saw a reference to call forwarding somewhere here. Will update if I find a solution.
