Quote from: KYdealsPR0 on August 05, 2022, 11:41:52 PMMy parts came in and I have had success in some areas but still need help with a couple of things. I added the modular adapter and connected to the wall and it gave me a dial tone and dialed out perfectly. It did not ring when dialed, however. Is there anything I can adjust, or will I need a different ringer? If so, what is the best source? Phoneco or elsewhere?Also, the handset cord I received from Phoneco has different ends than my original cord. I am including pics. There is only red, green, and yellow on the new cord, and the red has two spade lugs, one at the end, and another located in the middle of one end. One end of the cord has inner wires that are much longer than the other, and the cord itself is much shorter than my original cord. This was invoiced as a 6ft cord, does that appear accurate? Doesn't seem like it would be 6 ft even if it were stretched as far as it will go.Any help or advice with the ringer and/or cord would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to those who have helped me get this far.Jake

I'll PM you with what I find, we know I have the ringer.
