I have brought a new cordless phone, plugged in and get a dial tone but get disconnected tone when calling out and when people dial in. Tried to contact Vodafone but message says they are not answering their phones today, online help is directing me to ring their 0800 number. Any thoughts on what to try please.
It’s a Panasonic kx-tgd320nz

Is the phone perhaps inserting a prefix before dialling?


Take a look through the manual and look for something like "insert area code" or "insert prefix". I would guess it's sticking an extra 0 in.

Did your old phone work in the same plug? If people can't call in the issue is unlikely to be anything to do with the phone.
