SOURCE: How does one get the handsets to record the new speed dial numbers on the base phone?

I'm pretty sure the speed dial numbers are programmed on a per-phone basis. Most people would not want changes on one phone's speed dial to effect the other phones. I know registering the handsets will not make a difference. If the cordless phone is working, it's registered to the base. This is required so your neighbor cannot buy the same phone model and use your phone line. In the old days cordless phones were permanently linked to one base but now you can get extra handsets on many systems and "register" the phone to work on your base.

My store had a huge power outage where the lines were sparking. Anyway since the power has come back on I have no ring & can not dial an extention after i dial a phone number. I have looked in the...

So you're saying you can dial a phone number, but when the voicemail system answers you can't dial an extension number ? If that's the case, that means your phone system reset. Generally that means all phones will have access to only line 1 and 2, and that they'll be ringing on all phones. The date would usually change to Jan. 1st 1980, but caller-ID might override that. All line programming would be set to pulse, which would be the cause of you not being able to dial an extension number a voicemail system answers. It would also mean that when you do dial a phone number it takes a while before you hear it ringing. (Because the phone system is dialing in pulse instead of tone, if you stand next to the phone system you'll probably hear it go)

... Long story short, your entire phone system needs to be reprogrammed. I suggest only doing a partial reprogramming, then unplugging the power for a few minutes and check to see if the programming stuck. If not, the battery in your system also needs to be changed.

How do you forward a phone call from this phone to a cell phone?

to forward calls...go to your phone service providers website and help section for complete instructions...
with most companies simply pick up the phone... wait for dial tone... press *72 wait for 2 beeps and enter the number (area code first) that you would like it to forward to...once you enter the number wait for the line to ring... once it rings and is answered you are all set!
if it doesnt ring or is in use.. try again within two should hear two short rings if it is activated...
to deactivate call forwarding...
pick up the phone (in the office)
wait for dial tone and dial *73 or #73
you will hear two short beeps... it is then off..

Service was connected on Saturday 10/11, telephone rings in your ear when phone number is dialed, telephone not ringing inside the home.

If the caller hears ringing after dialing the home but the not ring inside home. That means the number is active but the wiring inside home is faulty/ not properly connected. A phone rings /or works of a basic system. Two wires usually red/green as primary. If either one is broken or improperly connected the phone inside will not ring. That doesn't indicate a short. If it was a short the caller would not hear ringing at all. So the first thing you must do is the track the cause. Make sure home phone is plugged securely into phonejack. Still no dial tone check all other jacks inside home. If still no dial tone. Contact your service provider. They will need to send a technician to check the Demarcation point. Which simply means the connection point where the service provider wires , meets the customers house wires. They just need to verify this connection

My house phone rings when someone calls but we can't hear it ring nor can we get a dial tone to call out

The ringing you hear when you dial your phone number is not actually your phone ringing but a machine at the phone company designed to give you something to listen to while they connect your call. I would say that your phone number is working, just not at your house. You need to call repair to trace your phone line and get it connected properly. Good luck

Phone not ringing

Just recently the Innovage LED touch screen phone stopped ringing. It has worked perfectly as a home office phone since Oct. 2005. Cannot find anything in the tiny manual to correct this problem.
