    You need to hit the up arrow twice very quickly. Unfortunately while on the phone w/ Uniden assistance my phone would not. I was instructed to return it to the store for an exchange or refund. I knew $29 for 2 phones sounded too good to be true!

Snowbird woman is right. Push the talk button. Push the end button. Push the up arrow. This will get you into the ring tone volume menu. One of the options will be "off" or on for the ring tone. Keep cycling through it until you turn it back on.

Depending on the model, look at the bottom of the handset and it may have a ringer off/on switch that has been moved to off position. Jerry

Home phone does not ring I know that it's working

Look for an internal setting that disables the ringer. This can be a ***** because most of us don't bother to customize phones like this and we never keep the manuals.

Check the manufacturer's web site for instructions or a manual.

There could be an external control to turn it down or off. The old 500 phone (black, rotary dial) had a metal dial you could spin to turn down the ringer.

You can always check a residential line by connecting to the demarc where the telco wires end and yours begin. Connect there and call in with your cell phone.If you get through, there but not using house wiring the fault is in wiring you own and you must pay to fix it. Don;t forget to reconnect the house when you are done.
