Line reported repaired, but still phone is unusable

I've waited (a few days to be honest) after my landline was diagnosed as being faulty. Now that it is reportedly back, the problem persists, viz. that people contacting me hear handset ring, but I don't. When I pick it up to make a call a number of rings start up but the process finishes early.

 

Would i be right to infer that I need a new 'phone. The present phone - BT Freestyle 7110 - is now perhaps obsolescent. 

 

My issue is whether to risk buying a new phone that I did not need, because my problem has not really been resolved.

Even better than borrowing a phone, nip down to your local Argos and get a corded one for less than a fiver. Apart from being able to test your line, you'll be pleased to have it the next time you want to make a call, or someone calls you, during a power cut.
