Re: no dial tone again

Hi @nbnobby

 

Thanks for posting. Apologies for the landline issue. I can see you've remotely booked yourself an engineer visit.

 

This can be tracked in your online account

 

Let us know how it goes. 

 

Best,

Re: no dial tone again

Yet another local power cut, and yet again no dialing tone....however the virgin media website is really bad(not quite the wording i wanted to put)......

how do you book an engineer now....you fall into a loop continually checking status, with no option to book an engineer.

is there something i can do my end to fix this annoying fault??????

my misses and i both have elderly parents

Re: no dial tone again

Thank you for coming back to us @nbnobby

 

I have taken a look & all the checks seem to be coming back as expected. 

 

Have you made any change to your package recently? 

 

Kind regards,

Zak_M

Re: no dial tone again

i thought you might have already known about this fault. no...ive not made any changes.....

when i have an electrical power cut, when the virgin boxes reboot, and connect, i NEVER get a dialling tone, this fault has happened countless times before, i got some lame answer about old cabling at the exchange last time.

but the other problem is how to book an engineer from the website

PS I STILL HAVE NO DIAL TONE

Re: no dial tone again

Hi @nbnobby,

I am very sorry to hear about this. Is your landline service provided via a connection into the router, or through a socket in the wall?

Can you also confirm if any other services are impacted, or is it just your landline service?

Thanks,

Re: no dial tone again

its via a socket, and once power is restored, and boxes booted, everything else is ok

Re: no dial tone again

Hi @nbnobby,

Thank you for expanding. Can you try plugging it into any other phone sockets you have in the home (if any) to see if the issue repeats itself there? That can help us to narrow it down as an equipment related issue.

Thanks,
