PostPosted: Wed Apr 13, 2005 10:36 am    Post subject: "Beeps" during calls Reply with quote Back to top

Callers have been hearing "beeps" when speaking to me on my Vonage line. (You don't usually hear it on the Vonage side, just on the other side) Now I remember reading a while back that this commonly occurs with female callers and it is a Voip issue. However, it seems to be happening more.

Does anybody else ever have callers complain about this issue? I am wondering if this is just a Vonage problem. My father in law has Voip from his local cable company, and he doesn't have this issue. At least not yet.

Thoughts??

But there is still no fix I guess. And from the explanation, it's probably not just a Vonage issue.

If a subpoena has been issued by a court of law allowing a telephone call to be recorded, a beeping sound must be placed on the line for the recorded person to hear. Furthermore, telephone recording devices also must produce a beeping sound even if you are recording your own conversation. Just one possibility.

No. It's just with female callers.

Disturbed, which codec/bandwidth setting are you using ? I have a different Voip provider, have never heard any beeps, and am using G711. I'm interested in whether this problem is more prevalent with those using compression codecs, like G729.

I am using the highest quality setting. I have no idea what codec I am using. Do I actually have control over that???

The highest quality is G711, so that rules out my theory. Yes, you control which codec is used via the bandwidth saver:
- highest quality: G711
- middle: G726
- lowest: G729
