Hi annboleyn

Welcome back to the community. 

Sorry to hear you're having issues with your landline at the moment.

Can you confirm if you're phoneline is plugged into the main master socket, an extension or into the router?

Please check that all phones are seated in the base unit correctly & powered ON and if connected to the router, please try rebooting the hub. Let me know if any of these checks work at all, or if anything changes with the dial tone. 

Now the message is telling me the number is temporarily unavailable. All the 'phones ( 4 ) are plugged into mains and phone bases and all have been checked. We also have a completely separate landline 'phone that is only plugged in to the 'phone socket and that isn't working either totally dead

Can you confirm if you plug your phone directly into the router? Or do you have an extension/adapter at all that goes from your phone to the router? Or do all your phones connect into the wall sockets? ie - the master phone socket and extensions sockets?

Does your package include a sperate phone line with us or is that with another provider?   

The router is connected to a wall socket and the other ones to wall sockets too. We have our package with Virgin which  includes the landline
