1)Make sure the phone is OFF (not in TALK MODE) 2)Press and hold the PROG buton until you hear a beep. The TALK button will flash while in this mode 3) Presd the TONE (*) button to select Tone Dialing or press the PAUSE (#) button to select Pulse Dialing 4) Press the PROG button again. The unit beeps to confirm.

Is it possible to call out with this phone,it has an old fashion dial


I assumed your old-fashioned phone works in Pulse (Rotary) mode only. Maybe the Tel Company or the Private Tel Exchange in your house supports only DTMF (Dual-tone Multi frequency) or MF (Multi Freq.) tone.

The tone on my 2 portable DECT 6.0 phones was somehow changed- now every time I dial, I get the old rotary sound and I can not access any menu options. Help, I use my phone for work and need it fixed! ...


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.

Outgoing call does not connect when I dial the number


depends on the telephone exchange . Suggest switching to Tone signalling . MTDF - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulse_dialing
Old technology- Pulse or Decadic Signalling - the line is broken by a relay contact or if even older a rotary dial manual switch contact - Dial a 9 you would break the line connection 9 times and send nine pulses.
Tone sends two frequency tones that encode the number that you selected and is a much faster dialing system and more modern method.

Switching from pulse to tone dialing (there is no switch on the base unit)


hold the select button down a few seconds until you'll see a 'tn' on the readout. this sets it to tone. hold it down again and it will set back to 'Pu' for pulse. i figured this out by accident. the losers at vtech never answered my question.
