Okay, forgive me if this is just really dumb; but usually when you use a phone, pressing a number on the dialer (hardware numbers on the front or software app. (i.e. iphone dialer)) will emit a dial tone corresponding (according to some magical logic) to the number?
I get no sound out of the thing whatsoever, not when I dial, not when it's ringing (?) - nothing.
I'm trying to ascertain if I've been sent a dud (i.e. the sound chip doesn't work) or if it's just a software thing.
Can someone tell me if there is a simple way to make the thing emit a noise (any noise); or is there some daemon in the os which I need to start or something?

care to elaborate? what kind of noise?
what happens if you call your voicebox?

are you sure, you're doing it right?
