Maybe you can suggest they add a red flashing light to it so they know it is ringing. Are they hearing impaired? Are they dead? Did you check?

Have you gone over and spoken to them?? if so, Turn yours up, making sure they are home and call yourself repeatedly......letting it ring. Then when they come to complain, say you will if they will.

I'd be more worried about the fact that your neighbor still uses a land line.

Get with the program, park the horse carriage, and get a cellphone. Much cheaper and convenient.

Maybe cell phone reception is horrible inside the home. I have to go outdoors to get reception no matter which carrier.

Ace, you need to get a home, preferably on a large lot. Multi-family housing isn't a good fit for you.
