In GE models:

To set to tone or pulse dialing:
1. Press and hold the program button for two seconds. You will hear a beep.
2. Press the *tone button to select Tone Dialing or press #pause to select Pulse Dialing.
3. Press the program button again. You will hear a confirmation tone.

How do I get my crosley wall phone to work on tone setting? it will only work on the pulse setting which is very slow.

The DTMF [Dual Tone Multi Frequency] tone dialing system operates on Direct Current [DC] and is DEPENDENT ON the PROPER POLARITY of the two phone conductor wires!!!!

IF the polarity is reversed, ONLY the PULSE DIALING WILL WORK!!!!!

USUALLY the Tip and Ring wires are colored Red and Green [I think -- it's been a lotta years!!!!!].


Try reversing the two wires, and then switch the phone to tone dial and try it. That MAY solve the problem!

If that doesn't solve the problem then it's beyond me!!!!!

Good luck!!!!!

There is no "magic switch" on the back of this

The magic switch is in the SYSTEM. By default Panasonic systems are Tone dialing. You can change it or if you press # it turns off tone to pulse conversion.

Phone went from touch tone to pulse. . .


Read the manual to reconfigure that option. (Look for Setup button on the phone) I can't guess what model you have. On older phones one could find a switch on the the phone to flip between Tone and Pulse.

Sorry I could not be of much help.

Changing from pulse to tone dial

For the GE electric 2.4 GHZ phone where there is no switch, you have to press the program button and hold until it beeps (talk button will start flashing), then press the tone (star) button and program again. It will beep for confirmation

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.

These units just have a small switch on the side of the handset with two positions for pulse or tone, just to the left of the earpiece Here is the link to the instruction manual for your phone; Check page 2 of the pdf file if you are struggling to find the switch. Hope this helps :)

Copy directly from the manual: TONE/PULSE Your phone is set to TONE at the factory. Set the TONE/PULSE selection to PULSE if you have pulse (rotary). If you don't know which type of service you have (pulse or tone), check with your phone company. To program TONE/PULSE for all 3 lines: 1. Press STORE/IN 2. Press 0 for PULSE or Press 1 for TONE 3. 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. Press line number (1, 2, or 3)
