So I switched to Koodo home phone a few weeks ago with the understanding that the hub works during a power failure. Well mine did not I get that a wireless handset won't but I hooked up a corded phone to the hub and nothing. battery light was flashing on the module but no dial tone. This is not good.

Was it a corded rotary phone or a corded push button phone you were trying? Rotary phones will not work with the hub if that was the case.
Also Battery on hub is good for 4-5 hours so if the power was off longer than that it may have been flashing due to low battery warning ⚠
