I have 4 of these, brand new! I get a dial tone, and on some of them I can hear a caller, but I cannot dial out. I tried to program them; it appears that it's important that tone, not pulse be selected, but touch tone is the default option, anyway? I can't believe a simple handheld line line fon could be this much trouble. P.S., we still have phone service, by using our cordless phone.
I just purchased the Trimline Model 29265 phone and in the instructions it says that it can be wall mounted if you reverse the handset hook in the base? Where is the handset hook and how do you reverse it. Nothing in the instructions tells you where it is nor how to fix it.

You don't say what brand and model phone you have so I couldn't look for any detailed information, but somewhere on the phone will be a "tone/pulse" switch. Just where to find it I can't tell you so you'll have to play hide-and-seek.
For corded phones, check the bottom or side of the base part. If the phone has a spot where you can write your phone number, the switch may be hiding behind the paper strip under the clear plastic cover strip. If your phone has memory dialing, the T/P switch may be hidden under the card where you can write the stored numbers. On Trimline-style phones with the dial in the handset, the switch may be on the handset. On newer phones with setup menus there may be a tone/pulse selection setting instead of a switch. On wall phones you may need to take the phone off its mounting bracket to check for the switch.
On cordless phones, the switch might be on the handset or the base, again possibly hidden. Or it may be a setup menu choice again. But somewhere you will find a way to choose which dialing to use. Once you've found it, pick "tone" dialing and you'll be set.
From the Handset Setup Menu: 1. Press the caller ID-volume ( 5 or 6) button to scroll to the TONE PULSE sub-menu. 2. Press mute/program button to enter the menu. TONE/PULSE 41TONE 2PULSE shows in the display. The default setting is “1 TONE”. 3. Use the touch-tone pad or caller ID-volume ( 5 or 6) to enter 1 TONE or 2 PULSE. 4. Press the mute/program button to confirm. You will hear a confirmation tone and your selection shows in the display.
Here are the commands to run the phones memory dial (speed-dial). I have included the instructions for deleting and changing numbers as well. It is listed below. I hope this helps you out.

I have the same problem with a 25932 phone, and the instructions packaged with my unit was for the 25922 series. How serious are these people?
If you do get a solution, would you kindly e-mail it to my hotmail at email@example.com.
If the 900MHZ phone is Model 26928M programming for rotary dial usually goes like below, can't hurt to try on any model.
This adjustment allows you to select tone (touch-tone) or pulse (rotary) mode dialing. The phone is pre-set for
touch-tone use. To set to tone or pulse dialing:
1. Press and hold the program button for two seconds. You will hear a beep.
2. Press the *tone button to select Tone Dialing or press #pause to select Pulse Dialing.
3. Press the program button again. You will hear a confirmation tone.
