Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

I'm Greg and will do my best to assist you today.

Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of any issue you are having with your phones.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) The FULL Model Number of the phone system you are working with? If this is a cordless system, that model should be printed on a sticker on the bottom or back of the MAIN base.

2) Can you SUCCESSFULLY use ANY similar system - where you touch a number to navigate - using this phone system?

3) Do you have ANY other phones (NOT part of the main system) attached to this same phone line and if so, are they working properly?

Please REPLY using the box below and the SEND button.

Hi again,

Perhaps you are not aware that you asked your question on - which is a "pay-for-help/advice" site, where experts (like myself) try to help with any questions you have - for a fee.

Now that you know that, may I ask if you would like to continue (or not)?
