Question about Vtech EV2653 Cordless Phone (73507800685)

1 Answer

No long distance

I have the 2 handset/answering machine ev2653. I can no longer call outside if my area code. It worked up until 3 days ago. The other 2 phones in my house (non ev2653) work fine. It seems to have stopped working after I made a 3 way conference call. I have pulled the batteries from both handsets, unplugged the units from the phone jacks, and uplugged the base unit. The problem still exists after connecting everything back up. Thanks for the help. Jack

I have a phone it recieves calls but can't make them it was working until 2 days ago

Several things can go wrong. Do they need to dial an extension to access an outside line? Make sure they know this. Also, make certain to remove any area code in the menu settings. The phone could be trying to make a call, yet it dial the area code each time and screws up the PBX, so no outside line. There are more possibilities, but they require on site tests.

1. Remove the AC adapter plug from the back of the base unit (not from the wall); leave tel cord connected.

3. Hold down the HANDSET keys 1 and 2 simultaneously and then press the speaker button on top within 20 seconds.

4. Press any 3 digits on the handset i.e. 1-2-3.

5. After hearing a BEEP from the handset and base, press 2 on the handset. The base should then say "twenty-five", and the handsets will beep, confirming the new security code is enabled. Press talk or speaker on handset to confirm communication.

6. The time/day stamp and remote access code will be cleared.

We are having problems with our Muratex F110 fax machine. It won't send long distance faxes. the phone company says it is not on their end. any suggestions?

Well technically it's not on thier end. Let's remember that a fax uses a normal home style phone line.
So ask yourself these questions.
#1 Do I have long distance service on this phone line?
#2 If I do have long distance service do I need to do any kind of special dialing sequence to access long distance? Like a 9 or an 8 or any other number before dialing outside of your local area.
In some cases( businesses usually) a special code needs to be entered after dailling the number.
Most fax machines have a hansdset on them. Do this simple test. Lift the handset and dial a known long distance number and listen to what the operator message says. If all else fails call your phone company and ask them if this line has long distance capability.
