The phone will have a dial tone and call out but no sound on phone
I cannot hear any sound after the dial tone and the skype test will dial but says is your mic muted?
I am running vista and downloaded and installed the vista patch as it were. But still the cordless won't work

Have you checked for dial tone on the line? It sounds like you have a problem with the inside wiring to the phone jack. To test your dial tone out call you number and use a screwdriver and stick it inside the phone jack on the wall, if you have dial tone to the jack you will hear the "short" that you are putting on the line.
No dial tone on telephone set? could mean alot of things. Phone went bad, jack is bad(test in different jack or from a network interface, either inside or outside. depending what your dwelling is)
Just to point out a fact, when dial from your mobile to that number that has no dialtone, that ringing sound you hear is from the central office that is putting out that ringing, it has nothing to do with the phone you're trying to ring to. You would hear the ringing sound, even if all your phones were unplugged from every jack in your dwelling.
This is probably because dial tones and ringing tones are part of an archaic system. Your cell phone still makes these noises as a courtesy, and you hear the dial tones/ringing tones when you make regular calls because your phone is communicating with the standard phone system.
If you're running the sound test through Skype's options and you click on the make a test call option, then you won't hear anything through the handset. I had the same problem and I spent a few hours trying to figure out why it wasn't working. In the end I found out it was actually working all along.
What you need to do is add the Skype contact echo123 to your contact list. It should be the first one in the list from the United Kingdom.
Once that's done you should be able to bring it up on the contact list through Skype and initiate the call through the Handset at which point it will work properly and you should be able to speak to and hear the test call. That was the only way I was able to verify that it was in fact working properly.
Sounds like the switching mechanism that creates the link is stuck. When you answer your phone, you allow the voltage to complete it's path and you either answer the phone or you hear dial tone. If that switch is stuck closed, even though you hung up the phone, the connection is still alive. When you try to pick the phone back up later, the connection is still closed, but your phone has already passed it's "if you would like to make a call" message and you hear no dial tone. Unplugging the power to the phone resets this switch and all is good again.....that is until it gets stuck again. I have seen this problem with phones after a near lightening strike at the house. Sounds like you need to get a new phone as I don't think this is repairable.
alwayes start chcking a problem from the end and back
1) check the MIC on your handset - connect it to something else and see if it works good...
2) check your output if there is any noise (voltage, other system....)
if all is good then the problem is probeply in your COMP:
check all audio configurations
if that didnt help then its a hardware problem....
