  • Check that the headset you are using is not faulty by testing it on another machine or trying a different headset.
  • We do not recommend the use of a wireless connection as it may be unstable and cause intermittent connection problems. See ContactNow Technical Requirements for further information.
  • Check your softphone audio settings to see if the input and output audio devices are correct.
  • Check your PC audio settings are correct.
