If you are not a certified technician do not attempt to install a phone system yourself. Many people are unaware that phone systems need to be installed similar to a computer network system. The person handling the installation must have knowledge of that particular system. Some IT people can work on phone systems as well, but if that person only works on computers they most probably will not have the expertise necessary to work with phone systems (an exception to this would be for VOIP systems). Each system has its own complexities. Some systems are modular and may not require special tools or installation. Only a few systems can just be plugged in.
If you own a cordless phone, unplug it from the power supply and telephone jack. Check any equipment that may interfere with the telephone: answering machines, fax machines, caller ID units and computer modems. To check, unplug each piece of equipment from the telephone jack and electrical outlet. Leave everything unplugged for 5 minutes, then plug-in each equipment one at a time to see if the trouble persists.
Please note: Cordless phones will not work in the event of power outages.
I hear other conversations or static on my telephone line
