Quote from: Shovelhead on August 18, 2011, 09:36:50 PMGuess I'll be the guinea pig here. I ordered two DialGizmos on the strength of the e-mail received the other night. Justin Vietz said that they will work with U-verse and has sold many in the states. I gambled on two of themNow the fun with the installation. First, the installer left the box open to the elements. It rained early this morning, but it still works. I closed the box tonight. Surprised that my wife's puppy did not snag the wires from it. Outside cabling is sloppy, I'm going to make an issue of it as it will make for a PITA to mow or weed whip as the cable is diagonal from the interface to the underground cable path. A neater installation would to go horizontal to the downtube leading to the basaement.Second, I think the polarity to the phone side is reversed. While the rotaries will not work, the Touch Tone in the master bedroom. a 1969 Trimline would not break dialtone. Reversed the tip and ring, works now. During the installation, the tech needed access to the wireless transmitter for the cordless GE. He didn't say why, but I suspect he reversed the polarity at the block instead of at the interface. As soon as I get some time from work to schedule a tech visit

My three slot, well I have some work to do on the dial per my conversations with BDM last week.I only did a regular dial out, still have to learn all the new features the Gizmos add to the mix.
