Is there a way to switch 1571 on landline OFF and ON? I do not want to have it ON all the time.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can't do it with 1571, nor can you increase the number of rings before it kicks in. I would advise cancelling 1571 and spend the savings on a handset with proper answerphone.
I want to keep 1571, which is useful, but turn off the daft phone message telling me I have a voicemail. These calls come 10 minutes after a message has been left. BT Chat doesn't know how to do that.
Hi @gspearson is it the BT Text SMS alert feature you're trying to turn off? If so call 0800 389 5660 and follow the instructions. The user guide for 1571 is on this link.
@NeilO Thanks. I don't get an SMS on a mobile (which I don't use) - I get a landline phone call. I don't want either. I'll try your link.
