No dial tone or static on the line? Try these trouble shooting tips for common telephone problems.

Make sure your ringer is on. Check the base cord to insure it’s plugged into the phone base and jack properly and make sure it does not have any exposed wiring or sharp kinks. Also, insure it isn’t being stepped on frequently, or doesn’t have any heavy objects, such as furniture, sitting on top of it. Unplug the phone at the jack and electrical outlet for a short period of time before plugging it back in. If available, use this short time to test another phone on the line to see if dial tone is restored. If so, it may be your phone that is damaged. If you have a cordless phone, make sure the battery is plugged in properly and not damaged in anyway. If the telephone trouble persists after these steps, please contact the TOUA Service Center at (520) 383-5800 during our regular business hours. After hours, call 611 from any landline phone here on the Nation.
