There should be a couple of ways to figure out if the problem is in your home or outside of your home/apt. If you haven't already done so, try the following to isolate the problem


1. disconnect all of the phones, answering machines, fax machines from the wall jacks.


2. Wait a few minutes.


3. Connnect one phone into the jack and check for dial tone.


4. If dial tone on that line, try to add one phone/device at a time and check for dial tone on the last working phone.


5. Once you find u added a device and dial tone disappeared, you found the faulty device.


If none of the phones work, look for a box outside your home.. it is a Vz box and may say NID for network interface device.


This box should give you a place where you can plug in a phone and see if dial tone is making it to the box.


Try these options and post what you find.
