My landline phone plugs into the wall socket, I have tried other phones without a result, all connections are sound.

Hi jimped,

A warm welcome and thanks for posting on our community forums. Sorry that you're currently experiencing issues with no ringtone when called. 

You advised you have already tried a different handset in your master socket which is great. Can we ask if you have unplugged any extension sockets and other equipment attached to your line also?

If not we would ask you to do this and just try the main phone in the master socket on its own.

Please can you also make sure the volume is switched up high on the handset.

Can you try to call your landline from your mobile and let us know if you get a ring time once you have done the above? 

Kind regards Jodi. 

I only have the one handset on the line.The volume is set on high and I have tried ringing with my mobile, the red light on the handset lights up indicating that the call is being recieved and registered on 1471. But no ring tone. 

Thanks for coming back to me jimped,
