Connecting phone to hub 4.0

Hi

My landline is currently connected to phone socket on the wall ADSL  and I have a home phone package with VM. Today I got the new hub 4.0 and it tells me to connect my landline to the hub. I don't have an RJ11 to RJ11 cable to connect the phone to the hub.

What is the point of connecting to the hub rather than leaving the phone connected to the existing ADSL wall socket? Does it give any other functionality? I have an old phone, would I need a VOIP phone to take advantage of it? Thank you.

Re: Connecting phone to hub 4.0

I take it you mean a standard UK phone socket, ADSL is not used at all by VM only OpenReach. All new installations now use the RJ11 sockets on the hubs, Hub3 and Hub4. Is you are just upgrading from a Hub3 to a Hub4 the phone line remains exactly the same as it was. VM may in the future put all phone line over the coax, but they have not announced any plans.

Re: Connecting phone to hub 4.0

Thanks. Yes, standard UK phone socket and just upgraded Hub3 to Hub4. So I take it that I should just leave everything as is with regards to the landline.

Re: Connecting phone to hub 4.0

So can you connect your phone to Hub 4?  When I do no dial tone?
