you can follow the steps below. The steps below will explain how you can resolve or at least determine why you have no dial tone on your phone. These steps can save money as hone companies are only responsible for their equipment and if they verify that the cause for no dial tone was not their fault, they can apply charges on your bill for such service calls.

  1. If you have a second phone line in the house check to see if that works, if not go to step 2.
  2. If you have a cell phone try calling yourself, and see if the phone rings or if you get a busy signal, or an operator message that can confirm if the phone company disconnected your phone service. If you get a message your phone has been disconnected, call your phone company.
  3. Unplug your phones for at least 15 minutes, all phones in your house and all lines just from the wall jack and power from the cordless phones.
  4. After 15 minutes plug your phones back in the jack one at a time, pick it up and see if there is dial tone. If not the phone might be defective, check the other phones.
  5. If still no dialtone bring a phone to your NID, this is a gray box located on the phone pole (in real rural places) or a gray box that reads "Network Interface", open the box with a flat head screw driver
  6. Once opened you will see some test jacks.
    Disconnect the plug from test jack. If you have more than one line, select the test jack for the line that is causing the problem. This disconnects your inside wiring from phone company's line.
  7. Plug in your preferred non cordless phone into the jack. This plugs you directly into the phone company line.
  8. Pick up the phone check for dialtone and try making a call. If unsuccessful call your phone company and provide them with this information.
  9. If problem is gone, you have trouble on your inside wiring, equipment or jacks. You can call the phone company, a contractor, or try to further troubleshoot and resolve yourself.
  10. Once you have finished your test, disconnect your testing telephone and securely re-insert the original plug. Close the cover and screw the fastener down until the cover is snug and tight.
I wish you good luck.

Our company has a Panasonic kx-t7731 main line has no dail tone.

On that phone, press PROGRAM the button and dial 01 STORE.

Press program again to exit programming.

It's not likely you'll be needing the Group Log In/Out button.

No dail tone report

some dial connections dont like the filters attached. does the new modem have more then one ethernet connection on it? have u tried it on another connection if u have on in the house? it may just be your settings in the computer. are you using the same computer for both broadband and dial up? if you are then you may need to adjust the settings in your computer, your isp should have done all that for you.
