If memory serves, to program the touch tone, lift the handset, press [PROGRAM] # # # 3 then hang up.

Re: Lucent Technologies 925 Phone

The lucent phones have always had this problem. They will resort back to pulse dialing after so many days of not being used. The programming back to tone will be listed in the owners manual. If I remember correctly, the directions will also be listed on the bottom of the phone, under the plastic base station.

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

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.

Switching from pulse to tone dialing (there is no switch on the base unit)

hold the select button down a few seconds until you'll see a 'tn' on the readout. this sets it to tone. hold it down again and it will set back to 'Pu' for pulse. i figured this out by accident. the losers at vtech never answered my question.

Press STORE/IN 4. Press TONE To program TONE/PULSE for each line individually: 1. Press STORE/IN 2. Press 0 for PULSE or Press 1 for TONE 3. Press STORE/IN 4. Press LOWER 5.
