Not getting a dial tone for two days on my TG2431;

The very small circle in the area to the left of the number of messages window is flashing on and off, but I don't know what that means.

First off I would want to know if there is dialtone getting to the phone. I would unplug the cord going to the phone at the phone itself. I would then plug that cord into a known good working phone. If you can get dialtone from this phone then you know it is making it to the questionable set. if not then try another cord.

    Where I was going with this line, was that I was trying to determine whether or not you had working dialtone to the jack. Which would assertain if you infact had a phone/cord problem or if you had a line problem. With that lamp flashing I immediatly suspect that you have no dialtone making it to the phone. Ask someone with a conventional landline set that works, to loan it to you for a quick test.

    Plug it in to your jack and see if you have dialtone. if you have dialtone check your cord, then check your phone again.

Uniden phone light WON'T flash red light when I have pulsing dial tone VM messages.


The pulsing dial tone usually indicates a message on the service provider's server, not on your phone. Contact your provider to find the procedure to access these messages.

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.

What does a boken dialling tone on my phone mean? It is all working fine and there are no warning messages on the display.


Usually broken dial tone means the line has call-forward set. You get broken tone for 3 or 4 seconds, then goes back to normal. Are you receiving incoming calls normally? It's common to set or cancel 'cause the code might kinda match a number you use. And it may be forwarded to nowhere, example, you dial 729-1111, but press 72#-1111. You might be forwarded to 1111, the code being 72#. The 1111 goes nowhere, someone calls you, calls gets forwarded, then they get a message"that number does not exist". If that's the code for your area, then 73# might be the cancel code. Check the front of the original phone book, or Google codes for your service provider.

I have 2 problems. 1. The orange message light will not stop flashing no matter what I do. 2. Some how the system was switched from touch tone to dial tone. I can't seem to that switched either.


Resetting the voice message waiting indicator
When you receive a new voice mail message, the new message LED on the top of the handset flashes. In the event your message waiting light gets out of sync with your phone company's
voice messaging system, you can manually reset it back to the "No messages waiting" state.
1. Press and hold FiND on the base for five seconds.
Note: The handsets connected to the base will start to beep, however, keep pressing for five seconds.
2. A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.
Changing the dial mode
Your phone can communicate with the telephone network in two different ways: tone dialing or pulse dialing. These days, most base networks use a method called tone dialing, so your phone comes programmed for tone dialing. If your phone company uses pulse dialing, you will need to change your phone's dial mode. If you don't get a dial tone or can't connect to the telephone network, please follow the steps below to modify your phone's settings:
1. Press MENU/SELECT.
2. Select the Global Setup menu, and then the Dial Mode submenu.
3. Scroll to highlight Pulse.
4. Press MENU/SELECT. You will hear a confirmation tone.
If you ever need to change the dial mode back to tone dialing, follow the same procedure, but select Tone in step 3.

Finally for future ease of use, here is a link to the user manual were I copied the above information from:

In some areas you must use 72#
Dial 1172 on rotary or pulse-dialing phones.


3. At the tone, dial the telephone number where you want your calls transferred.
You will hear the number you entered ring. When the number is answered, Call Forwarding is activated.


4. If the call is not answered or the line is busy, hang up and call the number again within two minutes.
You will hear two short tones telling you that Call Forwarding is activated.


5. Hang up the receiver.

Deactivating Call Forwarding

Turn Call Forwarding off when you want to receive calls on your home phone.

correctly.
TONE/PULSE DIALING
1. Make sure the phone is OFF (not in TALK mode).

confirmation tone.
