You have call bar on. To turn this off, Press the center of the joystick, then select the phone and press ok.
Select Call Option then press ok twice
Enter 0000 (default pin)n then turn it off and it will again function

I have done what you suggested and have got rid of the call bar symbol. Now I have no dial tone. Could the phone be on mute
are you able to receive calls?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The phone rings but we cannot hear anything.
ok, you need to scroll through the menu until you see the speaker icon with a line through it which is mute.
Turn this off and it should then function.

The link doesn't work. I know the icon you are referring to, but I can't see it in the phone menu. Could you tell me which options to open in the menu in order to find it?
strange as I tested the link on a few computers, but its the 9th option, after the magnifying glass.
Try to download it from here
