Cordless phones won't work with Verizon Home Phone

I got the Verizon Wireless Home Phone after I was told "any cordless phone" will work with it. I plugged in my 10-15 year old cordless phone. I had bad static and couldn't be heard. I called Verizon 2 or 3 times about the static and last spoke with Eric in Tech Support. I tried 4 or 5 different phone cords and the static was quiter but not gone. Eric thought I just needed a new phone (he promised to call me back at a set date and time after I bought one but he didn't bother keeping his promise!). Relying on Eric, I bought a brand new cordless phone system but, even though there was no static, people I called said they couldn't hear me. I wondered if it was the phone but I returned that one and got another brand new cordless phone system (different brand) and it is doing the same thing. I've tried 3 cordless phones and none work. Who else has had these problems? Did they get fixed? How?
