We lost power for about 2 hours and the battery back up system did not work. There was no dial tone and no lights on our digital phone! Is this a defect in the system or install?

If this is FiOS, for the battery backup to supply you with phone service you need a wired phone (always great to have in an emergency), or a cordless phone with an auxilary battery in the base station to power the service. FiOS's Battery backup won't run a cordless phone otherwise.
