OK, I've looked more closely at your phone pictures and glanced through a couple of GE manuals (for similar, but newer phone models). It appears to me that the button below the 7 on your keypad (it also has an * on it) allows you to switch electronically between tone and pulse dialing.

Try pressing that key to see if it turns on the keytones. The phone must be plugged in to your regular phone jack, because it gets power from the phone line and the electronic settings will not change with it unplugged. Try pressing the tone key with the phone plugged in but hung up and then pick up the receiver and listen to see if you can get key tones again. If that doesn't work, try pressing it while the receiver is off the hook.

Let us know if that helps.

(Following DConner's lead above, I'm using a larger font in bold face, since you said you had a hard time reading.)

Fletcher

Edit: I just realized this phone has batteries and is not entirely dependent on the phone line to draw its power. Boy, do I feel stupid.

Donna,
On the bottom of your phone (where you were trying to read the numbers) there is a plate (Covering your numbers). This is in the picture where you have written "This end up for desk use" You can remove this plate by pushing in the 2 tabs that are next to your thumb in the picture and pulling it off. This will allow you to get the whole make/model number.

bbtrumpetguy,

Do you think a hardware Tone/Pulse switch might be hidden under that plate? Maybe that's why we couldn't find it.

reebok,

Right. I realized that after I posted my question to bbtrumpetguy. I should probably go back to bed today and hope I wake up smarter tomorrow. Very Happy

OK, I will be waiting. I am at my ropes end. I am going to read all the other suggestions and hope one of them works, but I am waiting on a call from my doctor and I have to get that call before I go to playing around with my phone.
Thanks to all of you. I appreciate the large writing. It makes it easy for me to read. Yes, I am practically blind. But I can do just about anything on a computer and on the web as long as Cascading style sheets are not used. You can't enlarge fonts when those are used.
Like for instance, if you go to try to the tool bar in internet explorer and you try to enlarge fonts on this site, they won't enlarge. Cascading style sheets have been used. Using that style makes it very hard for people that can't see well. I can't read any of the stuff on this site without copying and pasting and enlarging. Except the email that is sent in large fonts. So yes....I appreciate your large lettering. I don't have to copy it and paste it or capture it in any way to read it.

Donna,

The pictures are great and very helpful. Unfortunately, I don't see the kind of button we would expect to switch Tone/Pulse dialing. That's really unusual. It's usually on the bottom or side of a phone.

The small hole you mentioned is probably a recessed button that can only be pressed with an opened paper clip. That is often the kind of button used to do a reset of the phone back to all its factory default settings -- but it might be something else, like the Tone/Pulse switch. If it is a reset button and you press it, it will erase all your speed dialing numbers and you will have to put them in again -- nothing lost permanently, but you'll have to go to the trouble of reprogramming those numbers.

I'll see if I can find anything else about your phone. For now, I would suggest you not press the reset button. If we can find another solution, there is no need to lose all your other programming.

I'll write more after I've done a little research. I have another idea, but I want to check it out some before I discuss it.

Sorry for your trouble. I expect someone here will be able to help you.

Fletcher

Donna,

After your doctor calls, try pressing the button below the 7 on your keypad to see if that switches to tone mode. Don't do it while you're in a call. Do it when the phone is idle, and try doing it with the receiver on the hook and off the hook.

Hi,
I tried pushing those tabs. They don't budge. I pushed until I have ridges embedded in my thumbs. I thought they were going to break. (my thumbs, not the tabs) It still would not come off. I doubt it has ever been removed.
I would think it might be the batteries if it had not happened right when I hooked it up to Vonage. Do you think it is the battereis anyway? Well, regardless, I could not get that battery thing open either. I guess I am a weakling. I might can prize it open with a screw driver if you think it needs batteries.
But...there is no hope of me getting the model number because I just cannot get those tabs to do anything.
I don't have any numbers stored so if you think setting the reset button would fix it, I will try that. I have had it a long time but never stored one number in it. Don't even know how to store one in it. So...if that is all it would mess up, let me know and I will try that. Pushing the tone button while it was hung up, did not work. I even took the cord out and tried it in the other jack and tried it again, and it still never worked.
Thanks,
Donna

I pushed and pushed and pushed but never got anywhere.
Do you think it would break if I tried to prize it off?
Thanks,
Donna

Might be, I don't know. And since I can't get it off, I don't know how I am going to fix it.
My son and law will be over later, and I will see if he can get it off.
Thanks,
Donna
