Welcome to JustAnswer..

Try this.

unplug the main modem for 2 minutes.

then plug it back in..

wait 1 minute

then... pick up the phone again. do you get a dial tone now?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

That did not work

Expert:  D.Sandlin replied 6 years ago.
Something is wrong with your AT&t line then.

this number is 24 hours

1-800-246-8464
  • 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

You need to use a cell phone if you have one, or use a internet phone calling program like skype, or gtalk to call AT&T at the number above

tell them your phone service is out.. Could have been a storm, or something hit onbe of the lines, or possibly just an error internally in their system.

Good luck! If you have any further questions, let me know
