My Vtech cs5121 cordless phone has no dial tone


Vtech phones are junk! I have had many trouble calls for no dial tone,only to find out the Vtech phone is the only one they have,and it is defective.(It really DOES pain me to bill someone 91 dollars to tell them their 21 dollar phone is broken-always try another(preferably hard-wired) phone before calling the phone company!

How do i enable call forwarding from my vtech phone to my cell phone


Hello! You can turn on call forwarding by pressing 72# then wait until you hear the two tones and dial your number that you wish to send the calls to and then hang up the phone. The two tones signal that it has understood your command and is putting the line into forward mode.

To turn off cal fowarding, press 73# and wait again for the two tones and hang up.

My phone dials too fast. The only way I can dial a number is by taking it off the hook and manually dialing after I hear the dial tone. If I use Caller ID, redial, directory, or putting in the number...


I had the same problem with a model 6325-4. Worked fine for the first week. Then, tone dial with redial, directory, etc was too fast for system to register the number.
Called Vtech support. After a 15 hold, 5 minute explanation and tech listening to a reproduction of problem over the phone, she asked that I perform a complete system reset (I called via my cell).
I unplugged power from base first, then removed battery from all hand sets. Powered down for ~3 minutes (with tech waiting on line the entire time).
I powered up base first and then reconnected all handsets. Selected a handset at random and performed the same dial from directory test I had done just before power down. The thing worked again. Call went through just fine. Tried several other selections in directory with same positive results. Now, if the system just stays stable and working.
Hope this helps..

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.

Problem when dialing phone


Yes, I have had nothing but trouble with my V-Tech ia5823.
Slow to dial, dropping out going calls and now the base light is flashing at a rapid pace and will not charge the handset.
I want to return it to Wal-Mart but have misplaced the recepit.
I will never buy another V-Tech..Uniden is the way to go!
