I get these weird beeps before my phone actually dials a number. I called 150, and was told this was an intermittent dial tone, and that it just meant that I had a voicemail (and to call 1571).
I called 1571 and no voicemail was waiting. I finished the initial setup of the voicemail (I'm relatively new to Virgin), and hoped that that would do it, but no, I still have the funny tones before the phone dials the number I've put in.
Any ideas? I've done some searching and I'm not in the Midlands! I see someone else had this issue and someone from Virgin did something in the backend to fix it. Hopefully someone will pick up on this.
Some areas will always have an intermittent dial tone when there is a call feature listed on the line. Dial 1765 from your Virgin Media home phone and we’ll tell you which colour area you’re in. if you are in Blue zone, you will always have the tone.
For any other zone, when you call 1571, are you listening to the end and pressing * to exit?
