Get dialtone but keyboard doesn't work

The subject tells it all. I can get a dialtone but I get no dialtone and the phone won't answer an incoming call.

Is there a quick fix or is this a bigger problem?

The phone is bad. Common with those models. You can get refurbished phones fairly cheap.

I have a vtech cordless answering system ( CS6829 ) I CAN'T GET A DIALTONE. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?


Check the phone line is connected to the correct socket in the base unit firstly, then if that's ok, if you have another corded phone handy, plug that in and check the incoming phone line. If that's not got a dial tone the line is broken.
If that's all ok, is the volume on the handset turned up? Does it have a signal in range of the base unit? Is the handset paired to the base station also?

Phone shows a voice mail but no message on phone


The phone's voice mail indicator works with the voice mail function from your phone service provider. When your line is busy or goes unanswered (depending on how it's set up), the message is recorded by your service provider at their end, and you need to retrieve it. Most systems give a "stutter dialtone" when you pick up the phone to make a call (a few short bursts of dialtone before it becomes steady) to tell you when there's a waiting message. The message waiting light on the phone lets you know in case you don't pick the phone often.

Once you pick up your voice mail the light will go out and the dialtone will go back to normal. Check with your service provider for how to do it.

Message light on Vtech cordless light won't stop blinking


The flashing message light may be telling you there is voice mail on your telephone line. If you have "home voice mail" or whatever your phone service provider calls their service, you're told of new message by a stutter dialtone. That is, when you pick up your phone to make a call, you hear two or three brief bursts of dialtone before it goes steady. Many new phone systems start flashing their message light when there are waiting messages so that you'll know about them if you don't pick up your phone. Follow whatever procedure your provider gives (usually you call a local access number) to pick up your messages, and that light should quit blinking.

We have a Merlin System, the phones are MLX-10D, we have to dial outgoing calls 3-4 times before the call will go through. Now we're receiving complaints that incoming calls are just ringing and we don't...


Sounds like one (or more) of your lines are out in your telephone system. Each time you press a 9 for a line the system simulates a dialtone to see what your dialing next so it can check it against the automatic route selection table. After it checks, it pulls a line out of a pool group to complete the call. At this point its grabbing a line that is not working on the system.The best way to figure out which ones arent working is to check the lines on the main console by pressing each line button and seeing if it produces dialtone. More than likely(but not allways) its going to be a line problem from your dialtone provider.

Can i forward my home phone to cell phone


yes, providing you have that service through your provider. It's typically done by accessing your line and dialing *72 if the service is active you'll recieve a stuttered dialtone. then dial your cell phone number. once you've answered your cell the transfer is established. To deactivate call forwarding, from your home phone dial *73. you should recieve a stuttered dialtone confirming that the foward is off.

Message box says full, but machine shows 0 messages


Do you also have a telephone-company provided answering feature on your line (such as Verizon's home voice mail)? I've known other people who got this service as part of a package from their phone company without realizing it, and had just the same trouble. Your callers may be reaching that instead of your answering machine.

Most companies alert you to waiting messages through "stutter dialtone." When you pick up your handset you'll hear two or three short bursts of dialtone before it goes steady. This is your signal to pick up your voicemail messages. Are you hearing this?

Check with your telephone service provider if you are unsure. If your telephone answering machine says it hasn't taken any messages, the full box message must be coming from them.

Voice mail i6725 vtech phone


ACCORDING TO THE MODEL NUMBER THIS PHONE DOES NOT HAVE AN ANSWERING DEVICE. IF YOU HAVE VOICEMAIL - YOU MUST HAVE THE PHONE COMPANY'S SERVICE FOR VOICE MAIL. IF YOU HAVE A STUTTERED DIALTONE WHEN YOU HAVE MESSAGES THEN IT PROBABLY COMES FROM YOUR TELEPHONE COMPANY. CALL THE PHONE COMPANY AND ASK FOR INSTRUCTIONS TO CHANGE THE GREETING ON VOICEMAIL.
