No dial tone at all

The phone will ring, but the party calling cannot hear us, nor can we hear their voice. Only the two non corless phones still.

Re: no dial tone at all

If the non-cordless phones are ok, it sounds as if the cordless handsets are the only ones not working, have you charged the batteries on those handsets ok and are there any signs if life, eg lights or on-screen messages ? Are they switched off ?
If there are signs of life, check the level of charge, if dead completely, take it/them to the main unit and put on charge for about 10 hours, if they work for only a short time and you have had the phones for a few years, then you will need to replace the re-chargable cells as they don't last forever and they are not holding the charge.
Hope this has given you some clues.....

Same as Veba - subsitituted another phone at the base & it works fine so has to be base unit or AC adaptor.

Why does my phone only rings once, calling party hears a couple of rings and then goes to voicemail. goes to dial tone when answered after first ring.

Press menu, go to settings then scroll down to ring count and set number of rings before it goes to voice mail.

Our phone rings, but we get the dial-tone when we answer and hear our neighbors conversation in the background

Change the channel or code setting. It's also possible the 'pairs" for your house and your neighbors are "crossed". Does it happen with all phones or just the cordless one. If it's all phones, the problem is in the phone lines.

How to do conference call

Depends on the phone system or service you are using. On a regular land-line you can do a 3-way call (if you have this option available to you through your service provider). To do this:
1. Call the first party.
2. Once the caller is on the line ask them to hold while to connect with the 2nd party.
3. Flash to dial tone. There may be a flash button on your phone or you may just press talk. In any case you should hear a quick "beep..beep..beep" then dial tone.
4. Now you can dial the 2nd party and click the flash (or talk) again to return to the 1st party and you both should hear the phone ringing for the 2nd party.

There's hundreds, if not thousands, of different phones, phone systems, and provider combinations that have different procedures for making conference calls. This is probably the most basic way. Hope this helps

Calls automatically go to voice mail

When you pick up the handset you hear a stutter dial tone? Forwarding or DND might be on.

This is the time that love cannot help with. Buy yourself a new home phone where the massages will pile up. erase all massages on your mobile phone. It is time to buy a cell phone which will record all masseges that you've received.

Unable to dial out, check voice mail and see call display

Hi at the back of the phone you will see a selectable Hi/Lo/Off switch. Slide the (Ringer) switch to High position or Low position to turn the ringer on. Hi for high volume Lo for low volume.

To prevent hearing any ringing of incoming calls slide the (ringer) switch to the off position but when you ready to accept incoming calls again remember to slide the switch back to either Hi or Low setting. Hope this made sense and helped.
