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.
Been a long time since I have seen this phone but I seem to remember a setting like this. Some phones had a long and short setting too.
Activate DTMF tones:
Menu > Settings > Initial Setup > DTMF
When you dial a number, your phone sends
it to your network as Dual Tone Multi
Frequency (DTMF) tones.
To send DTMF tones during a call, just
press number keys or scroll to a number in
the phonebook or recent calls lists and
press Options > Send Tones
If it dials O.K., try pressing # and see if it turns on the DTMF pad. You could have pulse dial on outside calls enabled, and that would keep the keypad in pulse mode until it's told to send tones.
This is really only a guess. The type of dialing is programmed in CO trunks and it's possible it's been set to Call Blocking! It is designed to send pulse only and block the audio of DTMF so the CO won't get confused. You might start with changing the Type Dial to DTMF and test. If that doesn't work, try Pulse and test. Last, if that doesn't work, you will need to keep call blocking and try the # after dialing.
Please comment back if it does or doesn't work. We don't see much pulse dial around here.
With caller on phone, press the conference button. You will get intercom dial tone. DIal another extension or grab a line and dial another cell number. When connected, press "conference" again, and you will all be together.
while on a call, press the talk button you will now hear a dial tone or just silence dial the number to the 3rd party at this time. after the 3rd party has answered press the menu button and select 3way/ conference.
these direction must be followed as closely as possible
If you have a flash button, you would use that to place the first call on hold and dial or answer a second call. If this is a single line phone in your home, you would have to have "Three Way Calling" feature with your local phone company. If you do, you could ask them what the dialable feature code is. It's possible they allow you to use your flash button, get dial tone and dial another person, when they answer, flash again to conference. If you don't have a flash button, they you would be using your Green or Off Hook button that you use to get your dial tone.
DTMF tones will not fix your length of rings before the phone kicks over to voicemail. You have to call your wireless carrier to fix that because voice mail is an external system on your wireless carriers NETWORK.
Changing the DTMF tones from short/long to off will only make your Voice mail prompts not work :) you always want your DTMF tones to at least be on SHORT.
And your right, DTMF tones are not on the LG phones because LG knew there was no point to that... IF a customer shuts them off they'll only be calling their wireless providers saying "every time i press a button for the selection i want.. it never registers!"
