Since you declined to specify the model of your VTech 5.8GHz phone, I can only suggest that you enter it into the search box here to download a copy of the manual. The manual will describe how to switch between pulse and tone dialing.

SOURCE: I can't dial out from my handsets

Here is something to try:

Disconnect or unplug the power supply (the small black box that is plugged into the wall outlet) wait for 30 seconds and then plug it in again. Sometimes the power supply needs to reset itself. It worked for me.

Thanks,

I would contact your phone provider. It could be a coinceidence that the dial tone stopped working.
DSL does not require dial tone to work.

Hello, I have a Remo-Con Tone Dialer but I cannot remember How to use it ! What is it meant for ? Kind regards.


That's not a brand I remember, but it's most likely a tone generator from the days when you still found phones with rotary (pulse) dials. Before tone dialing was the standard, if you wanted to use any kind of service (banking, alternate long-distance phone carriers, etc.) from a rotary phone, you needed a dialer to generate the tones. You held it up to the mouthpiece on the handset and pressed the numbers on the dialer keypad. Some of these dialers also allowed you to store some phone numbers so you could quickly dial them if you were using a tone dialing service. As tone dialing has almost completely replaced pulse phones, you seldom see these devices except maybe at yard sales. They have no practical use any more.

I have a Prostar 816 Plus. I disconnected the power cable today to connect it to a new battery back up surge protector. I then tried to dial out and it sounds like an old rotary phone. It allows me to dial...


To change the dialing from pulse to dtmf dialing on a prostar 816 you first need to be at a display set (doesn't matter what the extension number is).
with the handset down, enter #20 the screen should say MMC DISABLED
1) enter in 1 2 3 4 1 # (that enables programming)
2) enter in #42 the screen should momentarily say trunk dial typethen display the current programmed data (00000000)
3) enter in 0 for pulse dialing and 1 for dtmf dialing for each of the lines. i.e. touch tone dialing for lines 1-4 would be 11110000. all 8 digits must be entered for the program to accept the data
press # when finished.

Is it possible to have the kx-t7730 work on DTMF? My operator says thats the only way I can access some added services


It will, but you may have it programmed to not send DTMF in SYSTEM programming. Since the 7730 is backward compatible to every KX-T system Panasonic made, you need to post a model number of they phone system to get instructions.

Are you in a rotary dial phone system area? There are 3 ways to program dialing, rotary, tone, and suppressed. The 3rd one will ONLY send pulse dial and inhibits the audio. It may be that you can press # and force DTMF. In the last 20 years or so, we have never had to worry about that as our phone companies no longer charge for "touch tone".
