Getting a busy on *77 could indicate it's already set. #77 isn't a valid star code on traditional landline service. You could do *87 to release the feature, than *77 to turn it back on if you want to see if it's already set. Valid codes can be found on the right side of this page under Home Phone Hot Topics.
