Most incoming calls are received but some do not ring and eventually go to voice mail. Missed a couple of critical calls regarding family illness. Find it strange that this problem is inconsistent. Same person calls in just fine 3 or 4 times and then is unable to generate a ring. Is this a known bug? What can I try to rectify?
