Outgoing dialer stuck, need help Vista20SE

I'd appreciate your help with programming my system.

I had ADT install my Safewatch Pro 2000 system years back. Couple years back I canceled monitoring. Luckily it responds to the default installed code. I'm wanting to change it to call my cell phone when tripped, which it does, BUT:

- The alarm does call my cell #
- my cell receives the call with a quiet line
- The alarm deactivates the house phones & continues to redial my cell every few minutes.
- I unplugged the alarm from the phone panel to free up the phone line the 6139 panel reads FC for communication fault

I'm guessing the alarm is looking for some kind of info from my cell, but not a clue what. I looked thru pages of postings here but didn't find anything on THIS topic. Thanks

First start with the I want my alarm to call my cell phone sticky at the top of the forum.

Specifically, your system is a modified Vista 20se (if you didn't know that). You program your pager/cell number in the secondary phone number location (*42), erase any number in *41, and program location *49 as 6, 7, 8, or 9 (depending on what things you want to be called for). The format stays contact ID.
