For the GE electric 2.4 GHZ phone where there is no switch, you have to press the program button and hold until it beeps (talk button will start flashing), then press the tone (star) button and program again. It will beep for confirmation

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

It actually depends on the brand, model and version. Often utilized is a simple slide switch to select P/T either at the rear or bottom of the unit. In some others, it is configured in the MENU/Setup while still some would already be using TONE only. Most of the old phones would of course be locked to PULSE only.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

All phones have a sliding switch either at the bottom or sides of the instrument. The same is marked with "P" & "T" on either side of the switch, meaning Pulse or Tone. Shift the sliding switch to T for Tone or vice-e-versa.

SOURCE: can't change to pulse dialing

The Vetech phone will only support tone dialing. It does have a menu option that turns tone on or off but it still will not allow pulse dialing. I had to change the phone service from pulse dialing to tone dialing to get the phones to work. As it turned out, the phone company no longer charges extra for the tone service.

SOURCE: 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

Will not dial out on pulse on one line, works on second line


try changing phone to tone dialing . one phone line has been setup for Decadic dialing and the other line may be setup for tone dialing.
If tone dialing is working on one line but not the other then get phone company to change the dialing type on the phone line.
Dual tone multi frequency is the technical name for tone dialing and is more efficient than decadic dialing or pulse dialing.

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.

Both phones have no dial tone and don't work - could it be because they don't support digital?


Hi, Welcome to FixYa.

The cordless phones supports pulse dialing than tone now a days.
If your provider supports pulse dialing & tone you can just change the tone to pulse to use cordless phone. Otherwise you have to request for pulse dialing from your provider.

Swicth from tone to pulse


1) When the phone is in standby mode, press and hold the caller id/menu key.
2) Press the vol/ / key three times to select Dial.
3) Press the select key to toggle between Tone and Pulse.
4) Press the end key or return the handset to the base unit to complete the setting. The handset returns to standby mode.

This phone also has a feature that allows you to use Pulse dialing to make calls, but allows you to switch to tone dialing for automated systems (like “Please Press 1 for English) here are the steps for that:

Initially make your call with the pulse dialing mode. Once your call connects, press
the */tone key. Enter the desired number. These digits will be sent as tone dialing.
Once the call ends, the tone mode is canceled and pulse dialing mode resumes.

Sir the you are dialing on needs to have the other dial mode in operation. You have the ability to change dial mode on your phone. Instructions to change dial mode are usually at the beginning of the manual under install /set up the phone. If you are currently using pulse, please change the mode to tone. If using tone please change the mode to pulse. Doing this will allow you to call out.
