The visual ringer will not flashing.


At an educated guess sounds like dial tone is set to decadic if there are two phones the other phone will set off ringer when numbers dialed. May need to get phone provider to change dial mode in exchange line interface circuit to be Dual tone Multi Frequency Dialing and then switch phones to Tone dialing rather than pulse dialing.

My Uniden cordless phone will not ring through although I get the tone and put in the number However I can receive calls


It sounds as if your DTMF tones are slightly off frequency for some reason. I have never seen this happen with any phone, but production quality has gone down hill in recent years. As you can call your CELL but not land lines, it would appear that the tones are getting to the central office but are not necessarily being decoded correctly at their end. Try taking the phone system to a friends and try it there. if it works, you will know that it is your line and not your phone. You could also try another DTMF phone on your phone line.

One other thing to check is if you have DP (Dial Pulse) selected on the base unit. If this is selected, you will still hear the tones in your phone, but the exchange will receive dial pulses, which are almost completely unused today. Where I live, you have to pay a premium to use a DP phone now!!

How do I change pulse to tone dialing?


Are you sure about the phone model number?
Tone/pulse is set in the common equipment (KSU) configuration, not the individual set.
Press Feature 9*80 to see the system software version.

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!!!!!!!

If I enter the phone number and then press "talk", the numbers dial extremely quickly, a dial tone comes on, and I have to enter the numbers again. How do I fix this? It is a Vtech 6.0 DECT.


Usually there are two modes provided to all fixed line telephones. Tone mode and pulse mode. Pulse mode will dial the call slowly and Tone mode will dial calls quickly. Your phone is in Tone mode i guess. You need not dial the numbers again. Wait for few seconds and the call will get accomplished!

Before you store a telephone number in memory, make sure the dialing mode is
correctly set for the type of service you have. The default dialing mode is tone
(touch-tone), so if you have pulse (rotary) service, you must first change the dialing
mode. See “To Set the Dial Mode.” The following buttons can be stored into any
memory location: 0-9.

1. Pick up the handset.
2.Press the store button.
3. Push the desired memory location button.
4. Press the store button.
5.Use the handset number keys to enter the telephone number (up to 16-digits)
and press the store button.
6.Hang up the handset.
NOTE: If you make a mistake, use the delete button to delete wrong digits.
CHANGING A STORED NUMBER
Repeat the storage sequence above. The new number replaces the old number at
the memory location.
ERASING A STORED NUMBER
1. Pick up the handset.
2.Press the store button.
3.Press the memory location (0-9) to be erased.
4.Press delete for three seconds until the number in the display is erased.
5.Hang up the handset.
DIALING FREQUENTLY CALLED NUMBERS
1. Pick up the handset and press the mem button.
2. Press 0-9 for the memory location. The number dials automatically.

Won't dial out


might you have your phone set for tone on a pulse line???

Do you know what kind of line you have?

You can use pulse and/or tone on a tone line. But you cannot use tone on a pulse line.

A pulse line is cheaper ... I have a pulse line from the mid 70's and I refuse to upgrade it (costs more) to tone - whats the point - I never get any calls and im not in that big a hurry to dial for the extra couple bucks they want.

Need to change phone back to tone dialing


Here's what the manual says: Changing the Dial Mode (Tone or Pulse Dialing) (HS1 only) Your phone can communicate with the telephone network in two different ways: tone dialing or pulse dialing. These days, most phone networks use a method called tone dialing, so your phone comes programmed for tone dialing. If your phone company uses pulse dialing, you need to change your phone's dial mode. If you don't get a dial tone or can't connect to the telephone network, follow the steps below to modify your phone?s settings: With the phone in standby, press and hold [cid/menu]. Press [vol/ / ] to move the pointer to select DIAL. Press [select/channel] to set the phone to pulse dialing. Press [end]. Return the handset to the base. The handset communicates the new setting to the base, and the base activates the setting on any other handsets. Hope this helps out. K
