SOURCE: How do I change my phone from rotaty dialing to

In your phone's menu go to settings, call settings/options. There will be a dialing option. Choose T or Tone not P or Pulse dialing. Depending on your actual phone model there may even be a button on the handset to change this setting as well. Hope this helps and Good Luck!

Your phone is somehow set to pulse dialling and you need to change it to tone. Instructions are given below.

Of course if you can't select menu options this will not work so please explain why the menu options are not available - what happens when you select the menu softkey?

Dial mode
The dial mode is preset to tone. If you do not have touch tone service, you need to change the setting to pulse.
To change the setting:
Press the MENU softkey when the handset is not in use.
Press or to select SETTINGS, then press the SELECT softkey.
Press or to select Dial mode, then press the SELECT softkey.
Press or to choose Tone or Pulse. Press the SET softkey to save, or press the BACK softkey to exit to the previous menu.

I have a Prostar 816 Plus. I disconnected the power cable today to connect it to a new battery back up surge protector. I then tried to dial out and it sounds like an old rotary phone. It allows me to dial...


To change the dialing from pulse to dtmf dialing on a prostar 816 you first need to be at a display set (doesn't matter what the extension number is).
with the handset down, enter #20 the screen should say MMC DISABLED
1) enter in 1 2 3 4 1 # (that enables programming)
2) enter in #42 the screen should momentarily say trunk dial typethen display the current programmed data (00000000)
3) enter in 0 for pulse dialing and 1 for dtmf dialing for each of the lines. i.e. touch tone dialing for lines 1-4 would be 11110000. all 8 digits must be entered for the program to accept the data
press # when finished.

It sounds like rotary dialing


I have a similar Panasonic phone (KX_TGA101S).  Someone must have inadvertently changed the dial mode on you.  Here is how you change it on mine, which should be similar to yours.  Hit the Menu button.  Scroll down to "Set tel line" and hit the Menu Button (OK). If it isn't displayed, scroll to "Set Dial Mode" and hit the Menu Button. Select Tone instead of Pulse and hit the Menu Button.  That should do it.

D1232 Panasonic - Removing Long distance restriction


Changing the Class of Service COS of that extension to "1" will allow it to dial anything.
In a TD system, that is a 2-step process, because you have to find where the extenion jack is located in the system.

Go into programming and dial 003. If you press the SP PHONE button, it will step you through all the ports in the system and give you extension numbers. To start 01-1 will be 101 01-2 201 02-1 102 etc. Since you're in a motel, it should be renumbered to match the rooms and if you started with 100 or eliminated 113 your whole plan may be different.

Once you find the jack number for your station, press the HOLD button and dial 601 SP PHONE and the 2 digit jack number from above. You will be looking at your extension COS. Dial 1 STORE and it will turn off that extension's toll restrictions.

Please rate this solution and let me know if you had any problems following this instructions.
