Troubleshooting HomePhone-You can do it!
I’m not getting a dial tone on my OneHome Phone service.
We recommend performing the following steps to resolve the issue:
Ensure your modem is standing up. (Not upside down or on its side)
- Ensure your phone is plugged into the phone port on your modem.
- Check if your FibreWire Internet connection is working properly.
- If your Internet service is not working properly, please unplug your modem from the power outlet for about 1 minute then plug it back in.
- Ensure all cables are securely plugged in and verify that you have dial tone once you have restored Internet connectivity.
- If your phone is still not functional after performing these actions, please call 700-7000 for further assistance.
- Verify that your phone is plugged in to port 1 of your modem. Phone ports have a phone icon above them.
I can’t make long distance calls.

Have you recently requested to port your landline number to One? If the other carrier has not yet completed the transfer, you can experience issues.
Make note of the numbers you can’t call or receive calls from then call 700-7000 to speak with a friendly One representative.
My cordless phones don’t work all the time.
Try using the phone closer to the base station. Service can be impacted if the phone is too far away from the base station.
