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.

Hello, I have a Remo-Con Tone Dialer but I cannot remember How to use it ! What is it meant for ? Kind regards.


That's not a brand I remember, but it's most likely a tone generator from the days when you still found phones with rotary (pulse) dials. Before tone dialing was the standard, if you wanted to use any kind of service (banking, alternate long-distance phone carriers, etc.) from a rotary phone, you needed a dialer to generate the tones. You held it up to the mouthpiece on the handset and pressed the numbers on the dialer keypad. Some of these dialers also allowed you to store some phone numbers so you could quickly dial them if you were using a tone dialing service. As tone dialing has almost completely replaced pulse phones, you seldom see these devices except maybe at yard sales. They have no practical use any more.

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.

Call Pilot voicemail Nortel


Depending what number your extensions start with, you need to go to the programming for the auto attendant and "undefine" the number in the menu. More than likely, it is built as a "thru-dial" and allows callers to punch in the extension. If you remove this, callers will have no other choice but to use the options in the menu. I can walk you through these changes if you want.

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.

1. Lift your telephone's receiver and listen for a dial tone.


2. Press *7 2.
In some areas you must use 72#
Dial 1172 on rotary or pulse-dialing phones.


3. At the tone, dial the telephone number where you want your calls transferred.
You will hear the number you entered ring. When the number is answered, Call Forwarding is activated.


4. If the call is not answered or the line is busy, hang up and call the number again within two minutes.
You will hear two short tones telling you that Call Forwarding is activated.


5. Hang up the receiver.
