Just FYI, I placed a long distance call from the cordless handset using my cell phone service and the call went thru so it dawned on me that maybe when trying to make a local call I also had to dial the area code first and that worked, the local call went thru. Don't know why I would have to do that but I got it working. In case anybody else ever has this setup hopefully they can avoid this problem.
