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.
