• First, try all the above suggestions.
• Make sure there is a dial tone before dialing. It is normal if the cordless handset takes a second
or two to synchronize with the telephone before producing a dial tone. Wait an extra second
before dialing.
• Make sure the telephone is set to the correct dial mode (pulse dial or tone dial) for the service
in your area. Refer to the Set dal mode section of this user’s manual (page 12) to set the dial

• Eliminate any background noise. Noise from a television, radio, or other appliances may cause
the telephone to not dial out properly. If you cannot eliminate the background noise, first try
muting the cordless handset before dialing, or dialing from another room in your home with
less background noise.
