For the last few weeks, my cordless phone has not been ringing loud enough to hear unless I was in the same room with it. This is strange, to be sure, as my ringer has only two volumn settings: on and off. For the last three days, we have not heard it ring at all, despite receiving many phone calls. Naturally we figured the ringer just died on us. Bizarro Dad bought a new phone today.
I just looked at the thing. The ringer is switched to off.
