  Will keep muddling along and resisting the urge to ring SS and SCREAM !


calling is probably the only way you are gonna get anywhere with the issue.
That, or change to a decent voip provider.

would dialing *60 undo the block caller ID *68 command? probably wrong though.

I'll try that ..although a little scared to press * anything !

I've reset, reconfigured, re-everythinged , factory defaulted ... and now i'm using a softphone ( works every time ! )

My next step is ring SlipShod and try  to speak with someone who may be able to help.
I guess, for $21 a month they really don't give a fat rats bum about my problem or about spending too much time ( cost/benefit etc ) on my piddling account ... losing me as customer isn't going to worry them too much methinks .

Oh..and thanks for helpful suggestions !! Much appreciated .

Have just received a message containing the following ...which may help anyone else with the same problem :

"What: I have 8x8. Running on SPA122 ATA.

Problem: I was getting a fast busy on all outbound calls. 

Background: I saw here something about you trying *67, and I remembered that I did that too! ...And shortly After I was unable to dial-out! So I had 8x8 push the configs a few times but it still didn't solve it. So I asked them to ask one of their engineers and he said....

Solution: Dial *68 ...and wait for the dial-tone, then hang up, and calls should start working....and they did.

So, although *67 works fine in traditional telecom, evidently some providers don't configure it to always do the same thing....So if *67 breaks it, try *68 to fix! "

My phone is working again now - I really have no idea how I fixed it ...it's fine now .

Although ..I do notice that it can go wonky if there are a few messages left on the 'answerphone ' ....sigh
