Post How do I program the Vista 20p to call my cell phone?

I swap out the FBII Star XL 4600 DL with the new Vista 20p using the old wiring in the house. All worked locally but I can't program it to call my cell phone. I made it to trip the alarm then I picked up the phone and only hear silent (no dial tone or dialing sequence). The phone line just hung and won't reset even if I enter code to disarm the alarm. I had to enter the programming mode and remove my phone number to get my phone line back.

What steps do I miss to program it to call my cell phone? Thanks.

You can't use the regular dialer programming locations to call a mobile phone. You need to use the pager programming locations (programming location *160.)

Also, you need to make sure that all of the zones that you want to have activate the dialer have a report code (any non-zero value in the first slot) programmed.
