Intermittent Dial Tone

Hi

I have an intermittent dial tone instead of the usual constant buzz.  I have tried to leave a voicemail to delete as indicated in other posts, but my home answer machine picks up the msg and not Virgin (appears that I am not on the Virgin free answer msg service.  The msg is not left on the Virgin system.  Also tried 1572 with no joy as it has a constant tone and no answer.

Nothing I have tried so far seems to work,

How can I get back to the regular constant dial tone?

Re: Intermittent Dial Tone

Thanks for this MJ459,

 

I think the best way to proceed now would be to arrange for an engineer to visit.

 

I've sent you a private mail so that we can chat some more about sorting this.

 

Speak to you soon,

Re: Intermittent Dial Tone

Hi MJ459,

 

Thanks for posting and really sorry to hear about the issue concerning your landline.

 

Have you tried disconnecting then reconnecting the handset from the socket or tried different equipment?

 

Speak soon,

 

Nat_J

Re: Intermittent Dial Tone

Hi Nat_J

Thanks for the suggestion: tried that - disconnected the line in to the main base unit and disconnected the phone line, both for around 1 min with no joy.  Don't have alternative equipment to try,

Still intermittent tone........more thoughts.....?

Re: Intermittent Dial Tone

Could this have anything to do with a txt (sms) being sent to the landline number and not cleared properly?
