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.

How do I get a dial tone.can answer the phone.just cannot dial out


I am NOT familiar with YOUR make and model of phone, BUT.... I've had several cordless phone systems over many years, and have had the same problem that you describe. First, here is some background info for you:

The telephone company systems USUALLY have two different dialing systems:
  1. The "old" ROTARY DIALS worked by MECHANICALLY sending out different numbers of electrical pulses which the MECHANICAL "receivers" at the phone company "Central Office" buildings would read and thus connect you to the dialed number.
  2. Some years ago, a "new" dialing system was initiated. That system was called Dual-Tone-Multi-Frequency [or for short, DTMF].
DTMF uses BUTTON KEYS which put out a different electronically generated TONE [related to] for each different NUMBER key pushed, and THAT series of tones told/tells the phone company Central Office receiver computer the number to which you wanted to be connected.

Around the world over the years, most phone companies have, and still use one of these two dialing systems, AND...

Most cordless phone manufacturers designed their phones to work WITH EITHER system, BUT....

The customer IS REQUIRED to "SELECT" which system his phone company uses, while the customer is "SETTING UP" his/her new cordless phone.

THAT process IS INCLUDED in ALL cordless phone set-up instruction packages I've ever seen!!!!!!

Either you need to carefully read and study YOUR installation-set-up instructions and then PROPERLY set your phone's dialing system [to PULSE or DTMF], OR GET SOMEONE who KNOWS WHAT he, or she is doing to do it for you.

I, and I think no one else is able to guide you via back and forth messaging on this site. At least I know I can't because I'm not acquainted with your cordless phone, AND I don't have an instruction/set-up manual to consult!!!!!

Track down your manual, OR search for a replacement manual; the dialer system selection process is NOT DIFFICULT IF you have the manual!!!!!!!

Who do you make a conference call


While you are speaking to a party, all you have to do to add people is

1) Press the Conf button.

2) Dial the number for the new party.

3) Talk to the new party.

4) Press the Conf button again. You will hear a tone and then all parties will be able to hear all other parties.

To leave a conference call you just press the Conf button, listen for the tone, and hang up.

My KX-T7030 phone will not send a tone during a call, so I cannot "Press 1" or any number to use automated options. It does dial numbers ok??


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.

Conference Calling


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 is techno-speak for tone dialing (as opposed to pulse). Your GE phone is DTMF.

How do I set 1 touch dialing?


It's pretty much phone system dependent on the one touch, but PROG F button, 9+number STORE usually works.

As far as the calling into IVR systems, you may have to press # to send touch tones after you dial a number, or adjust the tone length in programming. Of course not all systems let you change DTMF times, but that's another thread :-)

I had the same problem. I went to each handset and pushed the talk button. After I got a dial tone, I pushed it again to stop the dial tone. The message went away.
