try changing phone to tone dialing . one phone line has been setup for Decadic dialing and the other line may be setup for tone dialing.
If tone dialing is working on one line but not the other then get phone company to change the dialing type on the phone line.
Dual tone multi frequency is the technical name for tone dialing and is more efficient than decadic dialing or pulse dialing.
If it dials O.K., try pressing # and see if it turns on the DTMF pad. You could have pulse dial on outside calls enabled, and that would keep the keypad in pulse mode until it's told to send tones.
This is really only a guess. The type of dialing is programmed in CO trunks and it's possible it's been set to Call Blocking! It is designed to send pulse only and block the audio of DTMF so the CO won't get confused. You might start with changing the Type Dial to DTMF and test. If that doesn't work, try Pulse and test. Last, if that doesn't work, you will need to keep call blocking and try the # after dialing.
Please comment back if it does or doesn't work. We don't see much pulse dial around here.
The cordless phones supports pulse dialing than tone now a days. If your provider supports pulse dialing & tone you can just change the tone to pulse to use cordless phone. Otherwise you have to request for pulse dialing from your provider. --------------------------------------------------------------- We appreciate your feedback; it will help us improve this Web site.

Here's what the manual says:
Changing the Dial Mode (Tone or Pulse Dialing)
Your phone can communicate with the telephone network in two different
ways: tone dialing or pulse dialing. These days, most phone networks use a
method called tone dialing, so your phone comes programmed for tone dialing.
If your phone company uses pulse dialing, you need to change your phone's
dial mode. If you don't get a dial tone or can't connect to the telephone
network, follow the steps below to modify your phone?s settings:
With the phone in standby, press and hold [cid/menu].
Press [vol/ / ] to move the pointer to select DIAL.
Press [select/channel] to set the phone to pulse dialing.
Return the handset to the base. The handset communicates the new
setting to the base, and the base activates the setting on any other
Hope this helps out.
1) When the phone is in standby mode, press and hold the caller id/menu key. 2) Press the vol/ / key three times to select Dial. 3) Press the select key to toggle between Tone and Pulse. 4) Press the end key or return the handset to the base unit to complete the setting. The handset returns to standby mode. This phone also has a feature that allows you to use Pulse dialing to make calls, but allows you to switch to tone dialing for automated systems (like “Please Press 1 for English) here are the steps for that: Initially make your call with the pulse dialing mode. Once your call connects, press the */tone key. Enter the desired number. These digits will be sent as tone dialing. Once the call ends, the tone mode is canceled and pulse dialing mode resumes.
For the GE electric 2.4 GHZ phone where there is no switch, you have to press the program button and hold until it beeps (talk button will start flashing), then press the tone (star) button and program again. It will beep for confirmation
Dial Tone comes back even after I dial the phone! Question:
Why does my phone allow me to dial a number, hear the numbers being dialed and then go back to a dial tone? Help me I want to call out! Answer:
Sir the you are dialing on needs to have the other dial mode in operation. You have the ability to change dial mode on your phone. Instructions to change dial mode are usually at the beginning of the manual under install /set up the phone. If you are currently using pulse, please change the mode to tone. If using tone please change the mode to pulse. Doing this will allow you to call out. answer found on www.uniden.com
TONE/PULSE DIALING 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.
Dial tone is OK, but can't dial out • Make sure the tone/pulse setting is programmed correctly. TONE/PULSE DIALING 1. Make sure the phone is OFF (not in TALK mode). 2. Use the CID/VOL left (-) or right (+) arrow button to scroll to 1TONE or 2PULSE, or use the touch tone pad on the handset to enter the desired setting. For example, to choose TONE dialing, press the number 1 key. 1TONE is the default setting. 3. Press flash/program to store selection. You will hear a confirmation tone.
Hi at the back of the phone you will see a selectable Hi/Lo/Off switch. Slide the (Ringer) switch to High position or Low position to turn the ringer on. Hi for high volume Lo for low volume.
To prevent hearing any ringing of incoming calls slide the (ringer) switch to the off position but when you ready to accept incoming calls again remember to slide the switch back to either Hi or Low setting. Hope this made sense and helped.
