VoiceEdge phone keeps ringing

I'm working remotely and when I answer a call on the VoiceEdge app, the app continues to ring. The only way to get it to stop is to exit the app, but I have to keep telling people that I have to hang up and call them back. This just started today on version 1.33.0

My users are also having this issue, I have uninstalled, reinstalled, performed updates, given access through every firewall needed. Nothing allows this to understand the call is answered. We never had this issue in the old Comcast Softphone. Can someone give us some advice here? This is causing serious work disruptions.

Re: VoiceEdge phone keeps ringing

Hi, I don't seem to have a way to reply to PMs, only author new ones and the system is telling me I have reached my limit of PMs that I can send. Is there a better communication method we could use such as email?

 

To answer Comcast_Gina's PM to me, all our users are on Windows 10 and are using the latest version of the VoiceEdge app. This does not happen on every call, but it occurs more often than not.

Clearing cache and cookies on your browser can help get rid of that weird error. If you click one of our profile names do you see an option to send a private message?

Re: VoiceEdge phone keeps ringing

We're having the same issue. When answering the phone (Windows 10) it just keeps ringing. I can hear the customer, but the phone keeps ringing. Closing the app does not work for me, though. I have to open task manager and end the task. Then reboot with a full shut down (restart doesn't work). I have uninstalled and re-installed. It is frustrating because it seems to work fine for 5-10 calls, then it just goes to ringing non stop on the next call. I'm a little at odds about the techs asking people with this issue to private message them. Perhaps if they gave us the answer here, we wouldn't have to wait so long for support, and could get back to work.

Re: VoiceEdge phone keeps ringing

I have already reached out to support. Twice. I received a support ticket and everything. The first response, regarding speaker default issues, didn't come for over a week and he called on a Sunday, leaving a voice message because we were of course closed!! Really? He did call again on Monday. At 4:59 pm. Yeah, right at closing. Luckily for me, a different IT service helped me with that one a few days earlier. It's pretty bad when an outside company's customer service is better at helping with Comcast's VoiceEdge App than Comcast's own tech support. When I called a 2nd time, regarding this ringing issue, I was told that I was put on an important list with the top engineers and would receive a call within an hour. That was also more than a week ago. No call. Again, why can't you just give your customers the answer to this issue here? So, we can get back to work. Stop telling us to private message you and expecting us to wait weeks for a response that only appears to come when we're closed anyway. Just tell us what the fix is. We have work to do!

Hi Gabe, 

My users are experiencing the same issue with the continual ringing as well. I'll send a DM with the requested information.

Re: VoiceEdge phone keeps ringing

So I figured out at least my issue. The users who were experiencing this issue were all members of a hunt group (x3000). What was really happening is when a user called in and hit "5" i was redirecting the call to x3000. The users phone was setup to redirect calls to x3000 as well, so the user was caught in a loop.

 

The cause of this wasn't the users phone being forwarded in a normal sense though. On the top of the app under "Incoming calls" it listed Computer - Always ring; Desk Phone - Always Ring; and then the Hunt Group name also showed up. I had to click the slider to turn off then hunt group then it worked. This was on be default and didn't really have an explanation of what it was, just found it by luck.

My case has been escalated to tier 3, I was told this is an issue they're aware of and are working towards a fix. At this point the only solution/workaround they have is to force close and re-open the app.

This is a huge problem and I see it's been one for over a month.

This issue just started happening for me in the past couple of days. I am running VoiceEdge version 1.35.0, with Windows 10 Pro on a laptop.

Comcast, please get a fix for this soon!

Happening on 1.35.0 and even after removing and reinstalling it happened again within 2 hours of reinstalling it.  I have also sent @Comcast_Gabe a DM.  If anyone has any other solutions please let me know!

 

Thanks!

Re: VoiceEdge phone keeps ringing

I got a voicemail from the tech on my case saying they have applied a fix to stop the ringing, I've reinstalled the app on my user's computer and will update if the problem is solved or not once I hear from her.

Re: VoiceEdge phone keeps ringing

That's the version that has been installed for my user. It might be an account related issue, since she's the only one in the company having this problem.

Re: VoiceEdge phone keeps ringing

Yeah, same situation here, one person that is having this happen.  My extension is fine though. I have pinged @Comcast_Gabe so if there is anything on the backend that needs to happen hopefully he will reach out.  It is weird, it had been working just fine till today and without any explanation it broke, tried the remove, reboot, reinstall and I thought initially it fixed it but like 2 hours later it happened again, that is when I tried the suggestion from @ChrisRyan.   I will keep an eye on this thread in case anyone else has any insight.
