    I have the same problem, but everything seems to be plugged in. It's very frustrating because we cannot afford to have someone come look at it. I've checked every where I could think of, could it be a telephone line that's down somewhere else? Or the company?

If you hear the phone ringing when you try to call from a mobile, that means your connection is still active at the local exchange, but does not necessarily mean your phone is plugged in or ready to accept calls. Most probably your phone is disconnected somewhere in the internal wiring within your premises or the phone instrument is dead or wiring is faulty outside your premises.

Why does the phone not call out ? It says the way the number is dialed doesn't work?


Did you read the instructions that came with it? I am wondering if you have to dial 9 to get an outside line if this is a home PBX unit?

The other possibility is that the phone is not set to tone dialling and is set to pulse. When you dial, do you her musical tones or clicks corresponding to the number dialled?

2. Press *7 2.
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.
