GPO 746 Rotary Dial Phone

Hi I've just bought a retro rotary dial phone, it's new modern one just looks like an old one. It is connected to my hub 3, it rings and can take incoming calls but cannot dial out, it's not registering the dialled numbers, is this because the hub 3 doesn't support pulse dialling, can this be fixed in anyway so I can dial out?

Re: GPO 746 Rotary Dial Phone

Not sure if you are referring to a genuine vintage item or a modern day clone reproduction version but ...

Refer to this topic (old phone, different problem)

https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Home-Phone/GPO-332-Retro-phone-connection-to-Hub3/td-p/4589742

which mentions a 'Rotatone' kit. Google it and you can find either a kit to install yourself or companies who do phone conversions. I believe there may also be other similar things available.

No experience of it myself so no idea about reliability or functionality but the Rotatone website seems to be well documented. Might be somewhere to look for starters.

Many thanks, it's a modern one, looks like they only work with BT and Sky lines so will be returning it!!
