    I can dial within my state (Western Australia) and mobile numbers but not Eastern states. (Normally we enter a code before dialling out, as I'm working from a university). I went into menu > Global setup etc to try and change the Dial Mode (from pulse to tone?), but only options which come up are 'Name Tag' and 'Insert.' Any idea?

    Hi,



    I live in Mechelen and I have a new Topcom Argo phone(analogue telephone).Im not being able to dial any number, although i can receive calls. A weird noise is generated whenever i press any button and the call just does not get generated.

    Could it be because its in pulse mode?

    Also, if its in pulse mode, how do i set it back to tone mode?



    Regards,

    Prudence.

    I have a Uniden phone system that worked fine for about 3 weeks. Now it can only make calls in pulse mode. Is there a solution to this problem?

SOURCE: Switching from pulse to tone dialing (there is no switch on the base unit)

hold the select button down a few seconds until you'll see a 'tn' on the readout. this sets it to tone. hold it down again and it will set back to 'Pu' for pulse. i figured this out by accident. the losers at vtech never answered my question.

SOURCE: changing from pulse to tone dial

All phones have a sliding switch either at the bottom or sides of the instrument. The same is marked with "P" & "T" on either side of the switch, meaning Pulse or Tone. Shift the sliding switch to T for Tone or vice-e-versa.

SOURCE: Need to change phone back to tone dialing

Here's what the manual says: Changing the Dial Mode (Tone or Pulse Dialing) (HS1 only) 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. Press [end]. Return the handset to the base. The handset communicates the new setting to the base, and the base activates the setting on any other handsets. Hope this helps out. K

Go to Menu > Set tel line > Set dial mode > Tone. That should solve it.

Won't dial out


might you have your phone set for tone on a pulse line???

Do you know what kind of line you have?

You can use pulse and/or tone on a tone line. But you cannot use tone on a pulse line.

A pulse line is cheaper ... I have a pulse line from the mid 70's and I refuse to upgrade it (costs more) to tone - whats the point - I never get any calls and im not in that big a hurry to dial for the extra couple bucks they want.
