My mums phone line is completely dead. No dial tone and when I ring her it goes straight to the Vm answer phone. Have tried another phone and still no dial tone etc
My mum is 89 and has Alzheimer’s and is really dependent on her phone. She has no mobile as a backup as she doesn’t know how to use them
Service checker shows no problems, tried phoning it in but goes through a useless loop of tests and ring back after 10 mins, do not seem to get to any test results!

Thank you for coming back to me via private message and confirming your details. I have now booked you a technician visit for your mum's landline issue – you can check and amend the date and time of your appointment via your online account.
There will be no charge for this visit unless:
• The technician diagnoses the faults as not being caused by our network/equipment
• The technician discovers that the fault or problem relates to your equipment
• The technician discovers that the fault or problem relates to any system that we are not responsible for
The technician will confirm during their visit if any of these instances apply, and if so, a £25 charge will be applied to your account.
Please ensure there is someone over the age of 18 present at the time of the visit. If you need to change or cancel your appointment you can do this online or via the MyVM app by 4pm the day before the appointment.
If you do miss an agreed appointment for any reason, a £25 missed appointment charge will be applied to your account on the day of the appointment.
Please keep us updated on how your appointment goes and if you need any further assistance.

Hi, got the pm about the area fault in my mums post code but on the service checker it states it’s a tv issue not a home phone issue ?
