Flashing ‘red phone symbol’

Joining in

Hi there

There was an issue with the service in my postcode area yesterday but today it’s reporting that that all is o/k. However my modem is flashing ‘red phone’ and I have no dialling tone. 
Important that my landline is working as expecting some important calls.

Many thanks

My landline is still out of order - what’s the latest on a fix time? Wait to hear from you.

Hi Kath

Thanks for your detailed response. Sadly the fix time you stated of 11.40 on November 7 has not been met by your people and I am still without the use of my landline which is now more than inconvenient. It’s been a week now that I’ve been without the use of my telephone. Please update me on the latest situation.

Many thanks


Hi Bigbob1 👋 Thank you for getting back to us!

So sorry to hear that the outage is still ongoing for you. Having checked in with the outage information it sadly has been extended and is currently estimated to be fixed tomorrow (09.11.23) by 6pm. 

Thank you for your patience whilst we get this sorted! Please do continue to keep us posted so we can offer help as and when needed. 

All the best. 🌞


Hi Molly

The latest fix date of 6pm yesterday November 9 has passed without my landline being fixed. Now entering the second week without the use of my telephone. What are they now saying about when this is going to be up and running. My annoyance isn’t directed at you or your colleagues personally but at your technical people.


Hi @bigbob1,

I've checked over the fault ticket and it appears that it has now been closed as resolved.

Are you still experiencing the same issue that you mentioned in your initial post in this thread, or has it changed at all?
