Problem with phone line after moving flats

I have moved to a new flats 3 months ago.  We transferred our BT line (BT is our phone and internet provider) to our new flat, internet works fine, but the phone line doesn't! We are not able to call anyone, or receive any calls. Is it something we can do to fix it on our own or should we call an engineer? Will it cost us anything if we call a BT engineer?
THank you in advance!

  • Problem with phone line after installation of BT I...

    Hi,
    After persuading my dad (86) to switch from aol to BT infinity he is still without a working phone line.  The phone line worked perfectly before switching to BT.  Bt infinity was installed 5 weeks ago and ever since then his phone line developes a loud buzzing noice then breaks up completely after about 1-2 minutes into a call.  Has been reported to BT several times, 4 BT engineers have been out to try and fix the problem without any success.  We do not seem to be getting anywhere with BT and do not know what to do next. 
    Any help/advice would be gratefully received.

  • Problem with phone line

    Hi there,
    I have been having problems with my phone line since May. The line is fine until one day I will pick up to make a call and there will be no dial tone. The tones on the keypad make a noise but the call doesn't happen. No one can get hold of me on my landline. When I get my son to do a line check the phone works again for a few days and then the problem starts again. This has all started since I got broadband. I have had two visits from engineers, the last one being Friday 20th August. That engineer told me he couldn't understand what was happening, he thought it might be the old underground cables and they couldn't cope with the broadband. I have the same issue again and am at my wits end. What should I do next? 

    Hi Coomrith and welcome
    Did the engineer say whether he was going to escalate this?
    You could email the forum mods - [email protected] with your name, account number, phone number and a link back to this thread. They may be able to offer some assistance.

  • Major Problem with Phone Line and Support.

    Well my problem started about a month and week ago. The problem is that my phone line is messed up. My line drops out unexpectedly and I cant receive calls or send calls. If it does work then the phone only rings for half a second 3 times. If you dont pick it up mostly on the first ring you cant answer the call. And if it doesnt the caller who calls me gets a verizon voice message thing that is setup for the previous owner of the phone number. We called verizon a month ago and setup a appointment for the 18th. Well they called the 17th and said they were sorry they missed us for the appointment on the 17th. We told them it was on the 18th and they said that they guess they forgot to call to tell us the date was changed to the 17th. So they said they will have someone out the next day, on the 18th. We waited at home and they still didnt show up. We called and they set a appointment on the 28th. We waited and they never came again. Now its the 30th and its getting rediculous. We refuse to pay for a service that will never be fixed and we cant use but for 1/3 of the time, if lucky. Is there any fix to this other than getting another appointment?

    It sounds to me like your phone line has a short somewhere.  If it was a "hard short", your phone wouldn't work at all.  But yours rings, and then shorts out.  Could be a wiring issue, or it could be a phone issue.  I would unplug all equipment (phones, faxes, computers, etc).  Then take one good phone to a jack and plug it in.  See if the problem still exists.  If it is still a problem, try a different phone at that same jack.  If it's cleared, the problem is with the first phone, if it's still there, unplug the phone and try a different jack.  If the problem cleared, the trbl is at the first jack.  If it's still there, then you either have a short somewhere inside your home wiring, OR the phone number MIGHT BE FORWARDING to another number (which would explain the strange message that callers receive).  Find out how to remove call forwarding in your area (usually by hitting *73 on your phone).  Please post results.

    I have  a weird problem I have no Broadband and no my phone is dead, however when I take out the Broadband cable from the socket my phone line then gets a dialing tone but still no broadband. Does anyone have any ideas?

  • Problems with focus traversal after moving to j2sdk_1.4.1_02

    Hi,
    Just moved to j2sdk_1.4.1_02 and we are having problems where
    focus stays on wrong UI component e.g. a user(user2) is taking edit/write permissions from another user(user1) that has write permissions. User1 is told that they will lose write permissions in
    the next 15 minutes ( information dialog displayed on their screen ) while at the same time on user2's window a text label is updated
    every 5 seconds to say how long before they will have write permissions,
    however, the information dialog displayed on user1 hangs and
    the user can't remove this dialog. Control seems to stay with user2.
    This used to work with the previous java version we used.
    Hope someone can help,
    Thanks

    Didn't say what version you came FROM, but I'm guessing if
    you're having focus related problems it was from PRIOR to 1.4
    when focus handling was revamped.
    You probably need to make sure you are using requestFocusInWindow()
    everywhere instead of requestFocus().
    Check here and possibly search for 1.4 and KeyboardFocusManager
    for new focus handling tutorials.

  • Problem with missing files after moving folders around

    Hi,
    I keep my music files manually organized. This is mostly because I have a LOT of music and I don't want to take up all the space on my MBP HD. So my music is split up between 2 external drives and the MBP drive.
    I was moving around some folders since I wanted to reorganize my music folders, and iTunes can't seem to find the files anymore, and in order to fix it I see I need to find each and every file I moved (which is really not practical).
    I tried editing the "iTunes Music Library.xml" file, but it seems to get rebuilt from some other place where this information is stored.
    I also tried putting aliases in the old folders' locations pointing to the new ones (iTunes kept saying the files are missing)
    Is there any way to simplify the process of moving folders?? This is really strange that such a feature is missing.
    Thanks
    Yaron

    If you have the 'keep' option enabled and let iTunes do the work - take a sound track album as an example - that has various artists and you didn't tell iTunes that the album was a compilation album - then iTunes will put all the tunes into into the iTunes Music folder as Artist>Album>Song - if you have the compilation option enabled for the tunes on that same album - iTunes will nest it as iTunes Music>Compilation>Album>Song. This helps reduce the clutter in the iTunes Music folder with a thousand artists and only one tune for that artist.
    With the 'keep' option selected iTunes will move tunes automatically within the iTunes Music folder. Since iTunes moved the files it can keep track of the links.
    To create a second library launch iTunes with the 'option' key down and follow the dialog box instructions. I have a 'Master iTunes Library' on my internal HD and several ext HD's with other libraries which I give unique names i.e.: Really Big Music. I give the library data base file its' own unique name so I don't accidentally erase the wrong file. I also keep all the files that you would normally see for an iTunes library on the ext HD (iTunes library. .xml, art work etc.,). If you are into lots of movies and TV Shows you could create a library on and ext HD with only video content and name it accordingly. You would keep all the files for that library including the library 'management' files on the ext HD in the same nesting as you would find on your internal HD.
    This strategy works for me. I tried to manage the files by myself at one point and just had to many problems so I decided to not fight City Hall and go with the flow and it works for me.

  • Problems with design view after moving to new imac

    Moved CS4 Dreamweaver from my Mac Mini intel duo to a new i5 Imac last night: suddenly design view is not showing various CSS styles, especially certain links.
    For example, instead of this:
    HOME | ABOUT | CONTACT | HELP
    it will show this in design view:
    |||
    Meanwhile, in a browser live on the web, everything is fine.
    I did a fresh install of dreamweaver CS4 last night from original install disks to new i5 Imac.
    Help!

    Culprit is the classic MS Windows font ARIEL. I installed it one at a time from two different sources (a 1999 TT build and a 2001 TT build) and both immediately caused problems, particularly in Dreamweaver with vanishing text in design view for any fonts setting sassigned the "ariel, helvetica sans serif family").
    Since problem only is happening on the 2011 i5 Imac (but not on my old Mac Mini 1.6 or emac G4) I will guess the dilemma resides with fontbook or something peculiar to font management on the iMac.
    Removing font of course solved all problems.

  • Problem with external editors after moving photos

    I moved my photos from an external HD to the drive in my new iMac.  I did not change the names of the folders or files.  Lightroom still works.  The problem is that external editors, such as OneOne Perfect Photo and Color Efex, no longer work.  I can't open photos from Lightroom to be edited in those programs.  OneOne suggested fixing the disk permissions in Utilities.  I tried that but it didn't work.  I'm not sure the iMac even fixed the permissions, and the photos will won't open with an external editor.  Any suggestions?

    Reload the firmware update and make sure it completes.

  • Home hub causing problems with phone line

    I posted earlier about a phone extension problem- it seems the hub is the problem. My phone had no dial tone just lots of noise,there doesnt seem to be a wiring problem, however if I unplug the home hub the phone will work fine! I have tried a new cable to the hub, tried microfilters which I know are ok, but the problem is no dial tone ,noise, or a recorded voice saying please try again. I assume the hub has a fault unless someone has any other rsuggestions

    have you tried connecting the hub and a phone to the test socket using a filter

  • Problem with junkmail folders after moving gwia from netware to linux

    Recently moved our gwia that handles internet email from Netware to Sles
    11 GW8.0.3 hp3. Email is moving in and out ok, but I'm getting some
    really weird strangeness with Junkmail settings. Just like the old
    gwia, this gwia has it's own domain/mta. Postoffices are under
    different domains/mta's.
    1. Email flagged with "x-spam-flag: yes" is no longer automatically
    being moved to the junkmail folder. Yes the box is checked for this
    particular's gwia settings, and I've even uncommented it in the gwia.cfg
    file to to be sure it's enabled.
    2. With the "view" column enabled in the client I can see that normal
    email coming in gets set with the tag "internet" Email coming in with
    "x-spam-flag: yes" in the header gets set with the tag "IPM.Novell.ND"
    If I right click on one these to try to manually set it as junkmail, I
    get a message that the message is "Not Eligible for Junk Mail Handling"
    and when I click on that a window pops up saying "This is a POP message.
    Only internet mail sent to your Groupwise account is eligible for Junk
    Mail Handling"
    For whatever reason instead of moving the email to the junkmail folder
    when the x-spam-flag is set, it changes it to type IPM.Novell.ND and
    then the client thinks that it's some sort of POP message instead of an
    internet email. If I redirect incoming email back through the old
    Netware gwia instead, everything works fine.
    What could possibly be going on?

    Did you create a new Gateway ( gwia ) object? Or recycle the old one ( which is usually a huge no-no. ) I suspect you created a new one, as you refer to the old NetWare GWIA. But you never know.

    Its only enabled if the run-time config says it is. ;-) Look at the settings listed in the HTTP console for the GWIA or the GWIA logs, which dumps the settings actually being used. You may find the setting is not really effective. Check for differences between the two GWIAs effective config.... something may stick out.
    In the message properties there is a junk mail handling section, can you give us an example of working / non-working versions?

  • Problems with iPhone 5 after moving country

    I have an iPhone 5 and have recently moved from Australia to New Zealand. I have a new simcard but the phone automatically puts Australian international dialling codes on every call or text I make, so nothing can go through. I think the issue is because my iTunes account still 'thinks' it's in Australia, even when I change my location. Any ideas of what I can do to fix this?

    You can change in Settings > iTunes & App Store > Apple ID: > View Apple ID > sign in and change Country/ Region.

    fair enough.  No need for any unnecessary posts either.  You issue had been addressed ad nauseum already in this forum had you bothered to search this forum (as forum etiquette would dictate) before posting.
