Landline active but phone not plugged in. Answer machine



I am thinking of unplugging my landline phone from the socket in my house, but will still be paying line rental (it is cheaper to do this than cancel the landline altogether because I also have TV and broadband).  If somebody calls my number I would like them to hear a message along the lines of "this landline is no longer in use, please contact us on our mobiles or by email". How can I set this up?

Hi Kawadadi


There isn't an option to completely match what you want but we could reduce the number of rings to the minimum and add a voicemail feature with the ability for you to record your own message, so the person ringing hears a few rings and then a message from you explaining the best methods of contact?


The best way to get this set up would be to give our team a call on 150 from any Virgin line or 0345 454 1111 from any other.


I hope this helps
