Intermittent dial tone

My home phone has recently started giving an intermittent tone when I pick up the phone. I’ve had the phone for some years without this ever happening before. Any suggestions how I can fix this?

Re: Intermittent dial tone

You can try dialling 1571 and listening to any voicemails you have

I work for Virgin Media and my posts are my own opinions

Re: Intermittent dial tone

Hi Blueboy56,

 

Thanks for posting on the Community Forum.

 

Sorry to hear that you have had an intermittent dial tone. Were you able to check if you had any voicemails as jb66 advised? An intermittent dial tone can sometimes act as a notification of a voicemail.

 

Have you noticed any pattern to the intermittency? E.g, is the tone cutting out in a regular pattern? Are you able to receive calls ok?

 

Thanks,

 

Beth

Re: Intermittent dial tone

Thanks all was solved by using the ‘1571’ suggestion. I didn’t even know we had 1571, as we have an answerphone.
