As well as a very noisy line, our home phone starting ringing at random times of day and night, just 1 ring and nothing else....so we disconnected it as never use it anyway.
Then last night at 11pm we had the police knock on the door saying they'd had a 999 call made from our number???
Tried reporting it today but don't think the Indian chap really understood what I was trying to explain.
So he tried to transfer me to the '2nd line team' ...but couldn't...so he called me back...but still couldn't transfer me and promised me someone would call me back within 48 hours.
Clearly we need an engineer to check the line. In the meantime I just hope our line doesn't randomly call 999 again and we end up with the police coming around again.
Thanks for your post and welcome to the community forums, TimMars,
Sorry to hear that you have been having landline issues. Have you been able to speak to the team since you post to get an appointment booked?
