On the new digital system you do not get dial tone after pressing the 7 to make an off campus call, just keep dialing. For example to dial the time dial 7 767-1234 with out stopping. NOTE: The digital system does not generate any audible tones.
When you dial into some other voice mail system or answering machine, make a credit card call, call a pager or automated attendant, you need to turn on the tone sender before you can control the machine on the other end. After the system answers, dial a 9 to turn on the tone sender, your telephone should display "TONE SENDER ON." The tone sender must be turned on for each call you want to use it on. *NOTE: The digital system does not generate any audible tones.
