Dropping incompatible voice frame error

We have an old analog phone system running Asterisk 1.2.13 (not my choice lol). Everything has been working wonderfully until today. The site is experiencing dropped and missed calls. When I tried calling the site, I did get through however the CLI was flooded with hundreds of copies of the following:
Jan 25 15:46:54 NOTICE[2343]: channel.c:1956 ast_read: Dropping incompatible voice frame on Local/4227@from-sip-a3d8,2 of format ulaw since our native format has changed to slin

I tried Googling the error but unfortunately, there were lots of reports of the problem and not a single solution or fix. My thinking is that it has to do with the service provider but I want to do my homework before pointing the finger.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
