Hi there @gwlevans


Thank you so much for your post and welcome back to the forums! 


I am so sorry to hear that you are experiencing an issue with your landline.


Can I ask if you are connected at the master socket or an extension? Also how many other pieces of equipment are connected here?


Have you been able to test another handset on the line at all? 


Thank you. 


There is one phone connected to the master phone socket and a burglar alarm. It was all working fine I noticed there was no dial tone today when I went to make a call.





I have also tried another handset with the same results.

Thank you @gwlevans


I think it would be best for us to arrange for an engineer to come and take a look into this for us. 


I'll pop you a PM now so we can arrange this, please keep an eye out for the purple envelope alerting you to a new message. 


Thank you.
