    I don't know if my computer is dsl or dial up. I bought a new phone, charged the battery, and still no dial tone. I only have one phone. Bell is supposed to check the box outside the building today, but the weather may interfere. I am cut off and can't use any of the phone solutions suggested.

Is your computer hooked up dsl or dial up? unplug all the phones and computer from the phone jacks.plug a corded phone into the jack and check for dial. if you don't have dial tone, call your phone company. if you do have dial tone, plug everything in one at a time and see if the phone line goes dead.if it does, the last thing you plugged in is the problem.

Why no dial tone. Only static?


Check the phone line were it comes into the house there is usually a point where the phone connection from the the TELCO outside wires connects to the inside wiring.
Remove the inside wiring and test the wiring that is on the TELCO side. If you get dialtone the trouble is in the inside wire. If you don't get dialtone call TELCO

Phone does not dial out any numbers.


Check the side of the phone. Look for TONE / PULSE selection.

MOVE it back and forth and leave it to TONE.

Test it again,

Not able to ring out or recieve calls on landline 01772465172


Is there a dial tone? Have you tried plugging in outside in the NID(phone box) on the side if the house. Take a corded telephone out to the box if it has a test port to plug into. If it does, plug in. If you have a dialtone, then the problems inside with either the station wires or jacks, or other equipment that is plugged into the jacks. Remove all devises from the jacks if trouble is inside and take a known working phone and plug it into a jack. if it works, plug in another device, so on and so on. Be sure to check dial tone, break dial tone by pressing a button. Hang phone up and see if dial tone has returned. If not, then that piece of equipment is bad.
If no dial tone at the NID, then call in a trouble report of NO DIAL TONE to the telephone company of cable provider. To save money if trouble is inside, purchase the inside wiring maintenance plan and then have them come work on the phone lines. After the service is restored, call and cancel the maintenance. $5 and you're back in service, provided that's all the teleco charges for wiring maintenance.

No connectivity cordless phone


Sorry you are having trouble.
Try this: Remove batteries from phones and re-insert.
Unplug base unit
Leave unplugged for about one minute.
Plug in base unit
Check for dial tone
If this does not work then get a non wireless phone and verify that you have a dial tone.

I cant get my phone to work. I get no dial tone and it says connecting but never connects. incoming calls ring but i cant answer


dear
There are a number of things that could be wrong. It really depends on what kind of circuit you have. Is it strictly copper or does it come from a pair gain system? I have had trouble calls for this very reason and I isolated the trouble to a pair gain card in the field. Have you tried dialing out when you have no dial tone? Most people don't realize that dial tone is not a requirement to make phone calls. It's an added feature that lets people know that it's working. It could also be a high open. Just means that one side or both wires of the pair are close to being broke and sometimes very hard to see. I would keep calling because they won't know you have trouble until you do so. Plus you will have documentation that it's an ongoing problem. Good luck.

Another possibility is a shunt caused by spiders or whatever. These can get much worse when it get's wet. They might clear on a ring too.

I'm voting for number 1 unless there is more info provided.

I'd provide Verizon with the RENs of all the phones added up. There is probably a 1/2 ringer or (1/2 REN) in the NID.

You need to determine if it's inside or out.

No dial tone


I would contact your phone provider. It could be a coinceidence that the dial tone stopped working.
DSL does not require dial tone to work.

Dial tone


I disconnected the RadioShack phone/answering machine and plugged in an old phone. At first I didn't get a dial tone, but in a minute or so, I did get one. I doublechecked the connection with the incoming phone jack. (I had checked this before, but didn't see anything wrong.) Again, I didn't see anything wrong, but maybe that did it. Also, when I disconnected the RadioShack from the incoming phone jack, I disconnected from my computer (I used to have dial-up connection).

Don't know which of my actions worked, but now I have dial tone on Radio Shack.
Hoooooooray!!!!

No dial tone


Have you tried a known good phone in the jack, if that doesn't work take the phone to the demarc box provided by your phone company and open the door on the box. Under this door locate the mini jack and disconnect it, then plug your known good phone into that jack. If you get no dial tone at this point, then it isn't being provided by the local phone company so it's their trouble. Thank you. Jerry
