why my phone (landline) decides to go to 'pulse' dialing tone suddenly?

i cannot figure out why it does that.

when it does i cant call out. it wont recognize pulse dialing.

how do i make it go back to a regular tone, does anyone know?

i had it happen before, a few years ago.. and i called the service about it. they

checked but said it is not on their end.. they didnt know.

any ideas?

but that isnt it i dont think..

because one time, here, O's phone went like that too. and at that time mine was fine. we have different kinda phones.

it isnt the service providers because we have a different one that when it happened before as well.

I have no idea tbh. Not many people have landlines here anymore. You can't even find a pay phone in this country anymore.

well it will go back to normal eventually. it did before anyhow. i just never know when or why it happened.
it is a pain because i have to use Os phone for now.
just wondering if anyone knew. and yes the switch is on 'tone'. lol.

Some of the older models of landline phones often have a switch on it called Pulse/Tone. Did you check to see if yours might have one that was accidentally switched to pulse?

oh sorry missed it yes.

yeah it is on tone.
that is on the bottom so it couldnt have been switched unless someone did it.
and it is still on tone.

i dunno. i tried to look it up but all i get is specific phone problems and i do not have smartphone or 'apps' whatever the hell those are..
sounds like some kinda virus. 'hey you got apps?' lol

nope just a regular landline phone.

Canada is notorious for being a developing country when it comes to internet and cell phone service. Not sure why your landline is going 1965 on you but you've got yourselves an outrageously overpriced 3rd world internet and cell phone service.

Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos was quoted as saying “It’s almost a human rights violation what they’re charging for Internet access in Canada.”

And it’s only getting worse: The report compares plans offered by selected Internet service providers (ISPs) in 2005, to those they are offering today. While most countries saw prices drop, the one Canadian company on the list had increased its price and capped the amount of bandwidth its customers could transfer over that eight-year period.

Take heart, the US is damn near as bad if you need internet in a rural area, but you can talk all you want on a pay as you go for 35 a month... as opposed to pay as you go Canadian plans at 25 cents a minute. blink.gif

there's your answer

and I'll tell you how it got switched

you were dusting the furniture

you lifted the phone to dust under and around it

a small dust mite , fleeing the dreaded Dust Rag , jumped under the switch
thereby resetting that switch and causing you a problem .

after the Dusting , the Mite laughed and said : Try to dust me up will ya ,,,, there, take that sucker

believe what you will

none the less
none the more
that is what happen

how do I know this fact ?

I became Telepathic with Dust Mites as a child

they know everything

it's why they exist and also why they can spy without being detected , cause they are tiny .
