It might not be a problem with the phones themselves, it could be the inside home wiring somewhere. The way to rule that out is to plug a phone into demarkation point outside your house. This is the point where the main phone line from Verizon ties into your homes internal wiring. There should be a beige or grey colored box that when you open it up has a phone jack. If you get no dialtone out there, then the problem is the signal coming down from Verizon. If you have dialtone there, then you know its a problem with the inside wiring of your home.
