There's a tone/pulse switch on the bottom of the base unit. If you need a manual, you can download one at

I purchased an extra handset to a AT&T uniden E2125 system. The phone instructs me to place new handset on main base to register handset. It has registered and now it reads, handset #5. When I try...


I've pulled up the user manual for your phone. Thank you for providing the phone make and model first, and the complete description of your issue!

The manual says the battery should be charged for 15 hours before first use.

You may be set to pulse dialing , even though the factory default is for tone dialing. If you push the 7 key, you would hear 7 pulses or clicks in succession. The dial tone will be gone once a pulse has been received. And you say there are clicks heard and no dial tone.

You can set Handset settings (Page 12 in the PDF copy) and customize how your phone works.

Hit MENU and use the up-arrow and down-arrow keys to scroll to the desired feature., this time called DIAL TYPE, then his SELECT. Looks like the sixth menu entry from the top after LANGUAGE.

It should read:
DIAL TYPE
TONE

If it says something else, perhaps PULSE, use those arrow keys again to change the Dial Type to Tone. Then use OFF to back out of the selection and again to clear the menu.

Attached is the link to the manual. Click the button on the screen to "Open as PDF" and you can open it in your PDF reader software or save it to your device for offline reading.

The tone on my 2 portable DECT 6.0 phones was somehow changed- now every time I dial, I get the old rotary sound and I can not access any menu options. Help, I use my phone for work and need it fixed! ...


Your phone is somehow set to pulse dialling and you need to change it to tone. Instructions are given below.

Of course if you can't select menu options this will not work so please explain why the menu options are not available - what happens when you select the menu softkey?

Dial mode
The dial mode is preset to tone. If you do not have touch tone service, you need to change the setting to pulse.
To change the setting:
Press the MENU softkey when the handset is not in use.
Press or to select SETTINGS, then press the SELECT softkey.
Press or to select Dial mode, then press the SELECT softkey.
Press or to choose Tone or Pulse. Press the SET softkey to save, or press the BACK softkey to exit to the previous menu.

I dont have an owners manual and just wondering how to switch the setting from pulse to tone


  1. Press MENU/SELECT.
  2. Select the Global Setup menu, and then the Dial Mode submenu.
  3. Scroll to highlight Tone.
  4. Press MENU/SELECT. You will hear a confirmation tone.
If you ever need to change the dial mode back to pulse dialing, follow the same procedure, but select Pulse in step 3

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

Swicth from tone to pulse


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.

GE Phone Model 25881


Per the instruction manual, there is supposed to be a switch on the base (look on the back or bottom) for TONE/PULSE mode. Here is a link to the manual: http://www.home-electronics.net/GE/ProductDownloads/25881EE3_IB.pdf In the "troubleshooting" section, there is this entry: Dial tone is OK, but can?t dial out: Make sure the TONE/PULSE setting on the base is set to the type of phone service you are subscribed to.
