Q. What can I do if I am getting a busy tone when making a call using my wireless IP phone?

A. If you are getting a busy tone when trying to make a call, this may be due to a SKYPE or PC application that has not yet started, a USB cable that is not plugged in, a PC that is on standby/hibernate mode, or another party is offline. To resolve this, follow these instructions:

  1. Make sure both SKYPE and the PC application are started on the PC and running properly.
  2. Make sure the phone is set up correctly.
  3. Wait for the remote party to be online.
