Phone No Longer Ringing

I had an engineer out to replace our router but ever since then when our home phone rings, the handset doesn't make any noise. You only notice there's an incoming call if you happen to notice the text flashing on the small screen on the handset. I was wondering why we haven't had a phone call in a few days! I have unplugged and replugged the handset into the router but still no joy. I have tried the phone on the neighbours phoneline and it works fine so something isn't right with the router/phone line it seems.

Re: Phone No Longer Ringing

Thanks for your post on our Community Forums @Rick_ and a very warm welcome to you!

 

Sorry to hear of the issue with the phone not ringing when a call is incoming

 

Can you please try rebooting the hub and running a test call to see if this rings?

 

If this doesn't work, please attempt a pin hole reset on the hub and then run a test call for us to see if this can prompt the handset to ring.

 

Kindest regards,

David_Bn

Hi David

Thanks for your reply. I have rebooted the router and performed a pin reset of the router and unfortunately neither have fixed the problem.

Re: Phone No Longer Ringing

It's been over a week since we noticed this problem has been happening and we are still none the wiser despite having equipment changed and various phones tried on the line...

Re: Phone No Longer Ringing

I got a phone call on my mobile around 8pm last night from a Manchester phone number and the guy said he was from Virgin Media and was calling about my landline. He tried calling the landline first and got no response and said that he would refer this on to the escalations team. But I was told that my case was being referred to the escalations team by the engineer when he called last week. So I have no idea what's going on or any indication when I'll have a functioning landline service again!

Re: Phone No Longer Ringing

Hi again, had another engineer out on Tuesday of last week, couldn't fix the issue and was told that again it had been escalated to a higher team to look at (something about an 'A5') and was told I would receive a call from that team guaranteed by the end of the day to let me know what was going on and when it would be fixed. It's now the following Monday and I'm still waiting on that phone call...

Also received an e-mail from Virgin saying the issue now appears to be fixed. It most certainly isn't.

It's now been almost 3 weeks of no phone ringing with promises made and none of them fulfilled.
