New batteries does not mean GOOD BATTERY.
Did you test the replacements?
There are batteries that come with a tester in the package. A small sheet of paper with a color coded bar to tell you much like a pregancy test, if the battery is good, before you leave the store.
Never use a new battery after insertion without a full 12 or more hour charge from your phone charger. The batteries are good enough to draw dial tone when new but have been setting in that package for a long time and NEED the initial rebirth charge.
Hope this helps.
