I have one hard wired push-button phone and three wireless push-button phones on my FIOS phone system. The wireless phones use tone dialing when making a call, but the wired phone defaults to pulse dialing. The wired phone used tone dialing before I got FIOS. How can I switch the wired phone to default to tone dialing? Thank you.
The setting is normally on a switch on the phone. The old rotary phones did not have tone anything. Being that phones today are so cheap. Buy a up to date one that has that tone/pulse switch.
yes it is also good to have a hardwire phone in case of power outrage. But i don’t believe fios digital phone has the ability outside of a battery back up to be active in event of power loss.
