I ended up moving one of the handset leads. I had ordered new cloth cords for the phone and the color codes did not match the drawings.

I do have another question: Even though the phone can dial out (I called my cell phone) it will also mis-dial sometimes. I bought one of those DTMF converters but I must not be connecting it correctly as it doesn't seem to make any difference. Can anyone tell me how it should be wired to the phone line? I tried to attach a pic but it's too large. It has a green circuit board with three screws on one end and a modular connection on the other. The red and green wires are labeled T & R and on one side the two terminals say "telephone".

If the image is too large try opening in MS Paint and then use the Resize tool or you can post the manufacture, model et cetera of your device and I can do it for you.

Just to clarify, it looks like a printed circuit board on a modular block. It has two legs, one going down each side of the block where the copper wire would come in. One side has one terminal marked L1. The other side has a terminal marked L2. The other leg has two terminals that are marked "telephone". I will take a leap here and assume the red and green wires with spade lugs go to the "telephone" terminals and the incoming line goes to L1 and L2.

Well guys, my assumption was correct! I wired the DTMF block as I suspected and everything works perfectly! I can dial out and get the correct number every time and I can receive calls. Oh happy day and the wife is happy too!!!!
