Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble. What do you hear when you pick up the line?Is the vtech base plugged into the att modem?

When I push talk button get dial tone. Push any buttons to dial get nothing
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Can receive calls. Can't dial out.
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 1 year ago
Okay, that points to this being an issue with the vtech system itself.If you're getting the line (dial tone).Initially though, please reboot your att modem/gateway by unplugging power to it for 60 seconds.If no change, we'd need to test another phone next, preferably just a basic corded model, to isolate the source of the problem further.

Re booted modem/router. Vtech phone as well. Still only able to get dial tone and not able to dial out.
No other phones available to attach to modem.
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 1 year ago
It is virtually impossible to diagnose the problem without testing another phone. Can you go buy a cheap corded phone at walmart, borrow one from a friend/neighbor for a few minutes, etc? The thing here is that the problem could be the line, or the vtech.You could call ATT out, but if they come out and find nothing wrong on their end, they will charge you a $100+ service call fee, which would have ultimately been better spent on a new phone.Chances are it is the vtech system, but we really need to test further to confirm that and know how to proceed.
