I purchased a KX-TS208W. (2-line landline speakerpjone) When I lift the handset, the selected line lights up but I do not get a dial tone. The only way to get a dial tone is to press speakerphone. What is wrong?

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.

If you start a call on speaker, then switch to the handset, can the other caller still hear you, even if you can't hear them?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No - cannot switch
Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.

You should be able to toggle back and forth by using the SP button, are you saying that won't work either (understanding that you likely won't hear them, I just want you to test to see if they could still hear you or not)
