My phone works, but it doesn't ring!

There's a "do not disturb" button on the cradle. If it's red, your phone won't ring.

I have a Panasonic 3

Just a thought as not an expert have you tried re-registering your main phone to the base unit?

My iphone 3GS is not

It might be in the vibratiing mode (silent mode), go to the profile settings and you can change it to normal..

Phone will only do a 1/2 ring although it rings 3 times on caller

The number of rings BEFORE going to record is probably set too low.

If there is a kessage recorded and it is in "Toll Saver" mode that will also do it. This is a way for one to not have to pay LD charges if reading out the phone remotely. Clear ALL stored messages as well as upping the rings before answering machine.

I'm not using a land line with my Panasonic KX-TGD560 and only have my cell connected to it via Bluetooth. How do I clear the "Check Tel Line" message since I'm not using a "Tel Line"?

Check Tel Line means that the phone is not getting a dial tone. Unless you connect the KX-TGD560 base to a RJ-11 phone cord going to a RJ-11 jack with a working telephone service, this message will continue. I've never used the cell phone link without having a land line connection. The Link-to-cell option for using the handset on Cell 1 (or Cell 2) may still work. You need to have a compatible cell phone close to the base. The phone needs to be positioned where it gets good signal strength. Test this yourself. I hope this helps.
