Resolution Steps

Cordless Phones 

  1. Verify the handset is charged, then unplug the base from the phone jack and electrical outlet

  2. Plug a standard corded telephone into that jack

  3. Unplug all additional equipment from your telephone jacks (answering machines, fax machines, etc.)

    • If you can make outgoing calls when the additional equipment is disconnected, plug each piece back in one at a time to determine if a piece of equipment is causing the issue


Dial Tone on One Phone of Many 

  1. Unplug the existing phone from the malfunctioning jack and plug a spare telephone into the jack

  2. If phone service is restored, the problem may have been caused by the other telephone

  3. If you still experience no dial tone on one or more of your telephones, please chat with a representative or contact us for further assistance
