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.

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.

SoundStation: Changing dialing from Tone to Pulse
sp.gif sp.gif There are three ways that a SoundStation can be changed from tone to pulse, which depends on when the unit was manufactured.
1. Pressing the Keys 3&Vol + simultaneously, will toggle between Pulse and Tone while the unit is in On Hook Mode (off).
2. Pressing the Keys *&MUTE simultaneously, will toggle between Pulse and Tone while the unit is in On Hook Mode (off).
3. Operation done by DIP switches. Dipswitch Configuration On the bottom of the SoundStation, in the lower left hand corner of the large sticker may be a small silver sticker. Underneath that sticker are 4 DIP Switches. Switch number 4 is for tone and pulse,ON being tone, and OFF being pulse. Do not change the other three swithces as this could render the phone inoperable.
