We use a product called Glayzit. It's not cheap, but one can will probably last you a lifetime :-)

Here's a link to a company that has it under Magnolia Glayzit.

Should tone or pulse be set on cordless phone?

Tone, unless your landline company is using antique equipment which only allows pulse dialing.

Try holding down the power button and the home button until the screen goes black. If this doesn't work then you might have to do a restore in itunes.

Hi i have an old bakerlite telephone could you please tell me if you do the conversion for it and what would be the cost kind regards cath

Please keep this as it is and you will find this an antique item few years from now. You can always buy a new phone at a much cheaper cost ( tone model) .The older phone works on the pulse system and to convert does not benefit much than the spoil the unit.

I cant remember my unlock code to unlock my new 8gb i phone.what can i do

If this is an iphone, you will need to restore the phone. You can do this by turning off the phone, press and hold the home key and connect it to your computer with itunes. Doing this puts it in restore mode and will allow your phone to be restored. This is the only way around this problem. You will loose all of your information, but if you have it backed up previously you will be able to get it all back.

We have a lot of static and loud buzzing on the phone

I had the same issue that started on some 3 year old 5.8 GHZ Uniden cordless phones. I moved it from room to room and same buzzing. I found a older Uniden set I had kept in a desk drawer. I swapped out the power transformer (power cord) and it is clear as a bell now.

One of goofy's ears is missing, are replacements available?

Gawrsh. Who made the phone? Is it possibly an ATC (American Teleconcepts)?

There's a company in Galesville, WI (Ron Karpin?) was the original owner who deals in antique phones. Maybe he has parts.

It is hard to diagnose an issue without having the phone in front of me. It can be namy things. These are probably made in CHina or overseas using cheap components.

What I would first suspect, is frayed wires inside the coiled cord. You can't see them broken, because they are covered up. It sould be the switch where the ophone hangs up. Many components are hot glued in place, dumb idea.

If you can hear the other person even parely it shows that there is an issue with a good connection. Over time, wires flex, and can break inside the cord. Switches might get out of place, get loose due to the hot glue coming off. Switches can also get dirty and must have contact cleanier sprayed inside the switch.
What I can suggest, is that you make a call, then when listening, wiggle the whole coiled cord wire back and forth, up and down, all directions. IF there is a momentary time when you can hear loudly, then you have found your problem. If the phone was in front of me, I could make some tests, but it is impossible to diagnose over the internet.
There may be a member of an antique telephone collectors forum around your area. I know the phone is not antique, but they will have the ability to test the phone locally.
Good lcuk.
