I can eceive and hear incoming calls but they cannot hear me. I get a dial tone, but cannot dial out on either of the pair of cordless phones. The dial tone never ceases even while I am attempting to dial out. I have an external answering machine on the same line and it is functioning properly.

Cordless phones can not 'forward' a call to an outside line.
Forwarding must be controlled by the ATT, Verizon, or landline provider. Please contact your provider to determine if you have call forwarding feature built into your service package.
Then, follow the instructions of your landline phone provider. Here is the instructions for Verizon:
Activating Call Forwarding You can activate Call Forwarding whenever you want your calls to be sent to another phone, including a mobile phone. Once activated, all your calls will be sent to the forwarding number you request. Each time a call is forwarded, you will hear one short reminder tone on your home phone, but you will not be able to answer the call from your home number.
Lift your telephone's receiver and listen for a dial tone.
Press . In some areas you must use Dial 1172 on rotary or pulse-dialing phones.
When you hear the tone, set or change the Call Forwarding number by dialing the telephone number where you want your calls transferred. You will hear the number you entered ring. When the number is answered, Call Forwarding is activated.
If the call is not answered or the line is busy, hang up and call the number again within two minutes. You will hear two short tones telling you that Call Forwarding is activated.
I have a GE 6.0 cell fusion phone, Model# 28128. It doesn't give a dial tone. So we cannot make or hear any calls. The incoming calls go to voicemail. I used to power off and on to solve this problem, but that temporary idea does not work. Please help.
Dial tone is OK, but can't dial out • Make sure the tone/pulse setting is programmed correctly. TONE/PULSE DIALING 1. Make sure the phone is OFF (not in TALK mode). 2. Use the CID/VOL left (-) or right (+) arrow button to scroll to 1TONE or 2PULSE, or use the touch tone pad on the handset to enter the desired setting. For example, to choose TONE dialing, press the number 1 key. 1TONE is the default setting. 3. Press flash/program to store selection. You will hear a confirmation tone.
