If you have another phone available for your to test your phone line, I would use it.
If that doesn't fix your issue, I'd call AT&T and have them reset your service.

Unable to forward call to my cell phone. Been dialing *72. But will not forward..called brighthouse land line provider and also ATT cell phon. Techs have not clue. Perhaps in vtech phi e


Call forwarding is NOT a function or feature of the VTech
cordless phones.

It is offered by some telephone service providers, but their
procedures are proprietary and specific to that individual
telephone (service) company -- if they offer it at all.

Good luck!

Tip

Linking your system connection to Air


TEMAB COMPUTERS ICT

You moving to the world of internetworking, as in you connecting your system with a dial up or modem so you can access the internet from your home, office and everywhere you may be the following are to be considered .
1. A computer. In order to use dial-up you must make sure not only that you have a computer but that it is going to work with your dial-up service. Some ISP's do not require that you install any software to get connected, so just about any computer would work. However, if they do require that you download their software or run a CD to start their service, you need to make sure that their software is compatible with your service.
For example, your computer may not have a CD drive if it's a compact laptop. Or perhaps you have an older operating systems like Windows 95 or 98. Many installations are not compatible with these older computers. If you have a Mac or Linux computer, you must make sure that the ISP will be compatible with it, or it might not work. If you are using the modem that came with the computer you have to make sure that the modem is installed or updated enough that it will not cause slow connections. Check with a computer technician if you are not sure there is a modem or that it's in good working order.
2. A modem. If your computer does not have a modem, or you wish to use a separate external modem, make sure that it is the correct type of modem. It must be a dial-up modem--broadband modems will not work. Also make sure that your modem is going to be compatible with the services you would like to have on your dial-up. For example, if you would like to add an Internet Call-waiting feature on your dial-up service, you need to have a V.92 standard computer. Otherwise you will not be able to be notified of incoming calls while you are online. Also, if the modem is not in proper working order, for example, it is missing it's latest driver software or has been damaged or corrupted, you will not be able to use it. Thirdly, if the modem is too old and does not have the latest standard, it may not connect as fast as a new one would, so if you know your modem is not V.92, you may need to get a new one so you can get better connection speeds.
3. A land-line telephone. This means your phone line must be an analog phone--cable phones, digital phones, and (usually) cellphones will not work. Dial-up uses analog phone lines because of how it converts and transmits information. It's just like a normal telephone. If you try to use dial-up on any other type of phone, you will get an error connecting because the modem cannot detect the analog dial-tone. Check with your phone provider if you are not sure if it is compatible to dial-up. Also, keep in mind that you will not be able to use your phone and the Internet at the same time, so if you wish to keep your phone line free for telephone calls, you may need to add a second line to your home. However, if you don't want two lines, simply add call waiting and caller ID to you land line and if you have a V.92 modem, you should be notified of incoming calls while you're online.
4. A telephone cord. This may sound silly, but some people do forget about this step. In order to have Internet through dial-up, you must have a phone cord attached from the back of the modem or the back of your computer to the phone jack in the wall. You might want to get a splitter so your phone line can share the phone jack with your computer, or you might be able to connect your computer to your phone or vice versa, using the "line in" and "line out" jacks on the phone or on the back of the computer.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that your telephone cord needs to be as short as possible. Any cord longer than 6 feet could affect your ability to connect to the Internet, or affect how fast you can connect. The longer the cord the more likely you are to have slow or dropped connections. Also, you may need to get a back up phone cord in case the cord you intend to use is damaged. If you buy a new modem, an extra phone cord is usually included.
After all that then you can move to meet an Internet service provider to have their modem or dial up. and their setup for the dial up giving to you. From there have a wonderful browsing and meting people

No calls in or out. I have internet connection. Why not phone?


if you have a land line for the phone system the internet uses the same wire as the phone but at different frequencies
the modem picks up this different frequency and so works the internet
the problem will be in the cable, cable socket or phone itself
pick up the hand piece and if you do not get a dial tone the it indicates that the phone unit is not making a circuit with the land line or the exchange to which it is connected ( different connections to internet) Try a neighbours phone connected to the wall socket and if that doesn't get a dial tone on that phone then contact the service provide and lodge a fault report for your phone
if it does then the problem will be in your unit, cables or socket connection.

I have an ATXSTF OXN Gateway that was used for dial up. I have ATT Uverse.I can't seem to switch it over. It keeps saying that it can't find a dial tone. Can you suggest how to switch it?


Not sure, but consider it just like a regular land line phone. So connect the line to the modem and plug a phone to the line port. You should get dial tone. The modem may need to re-seated or re-installed if there is no dial tone.

Telephone (land line) has no dial tone-- after a big rain storm


Let's make this official, then. Problem has to be in the modem or some piece of the cable or phone company outside equipment. You should get them back out for a closer look.

No dial tone on my landline, but have dsl


I bit the bullet and canceled my landline! I did so without an internet back-up though. I HAD an appointment with comcast so I could stay online, but I canceled it. The reason being, my wifi is still working fine! I'm scared to shut my modem off, for fear I will lose this gift from the Cyber Gods!! I bought myself a "magic jack",it was even mispriced $19.99. I hooked it up, instant landline & fax too! ALL FREE!! Does anyone have a clue how/why I still get the internet? Has anyone ever shut there modem off? If so, did you keep your internet? I NEVER have good luck, I MEAN NEVER. So, after so many years of paying for all these over priced, some would even argue, unessary this day & age,monthly pain in the wallet things. Im done! At least I pray to the Cyber Gods that I am! Im knocking on wood as I type!
