Incoming voice calls not possible according to my ISP

    My ISP is now telling me that it is not possible to receive incoming
    voice phone calls on the isdn line when both lines are connected as data
    connections. I have a cisco 804 router with 2 pots ports on it. My phones
    work fine most of the time. I believe I have it configured correctly, so
    that when a phone call comes in on one of the channels, it will drop that
    data link, then ring the phone for a voice call.
    Is this bs from my ISP, or is it not possible to receive incoming voice


    p.s. sorry for the cross posting, I thought this might be more appropriate
    in this group instead

    The ISDN line is controlled by your local telco (Verizon ect). If they
    no will bump the second data connection then tough. You might be able
    to have them reconfigure it to give you the expected behavior, but maybe
    not. If your ISP and telco are the same company than I would take their
    word for it.
    Talk is cheap. Supply exceeds demand.
