Thanks for posting on our community forums. We do apologise that you currently have no working landline due to the home phone switch over.
Can you tell us what issues you experiencing? Do you currently have no dial tone when your plugged in to TEL1 on the back of your hub?
Please can you let us know if you have access to your internet and its just the line that has issues or is it both too?
Kind regards Jodi.
Thanks for coming back to us mervynburrows,
Can we ask if you have rebooted your hub recently? Is this hum on all calls or just certain ones? Are you able to connect when you make an outgoing call?
Kind regards Jodi

Well, latest update apparently the wiz kids of virgin when designing the switch over to fibre phone lines via the router did not take into account that some customers had old numbers with only 5 digits not 6. According to the engineer the system cannot cope with these numbers so having switched to fibre we now have no land line. We have no ability to have contact with such as hospitals doctors dentist all who have our home phone as point of contact and it may be a while before this is sorted. We do have mobiles but the signal in our house is poor so thank you virgin for not thinking this through before making a major change. Anyone with 5 digit numbers should refuse to be switched until this problem is resolved or risk being uncontactable for some time.
