Re: No dial tone

Nope to my knowledge the connection has been solid.

I'll check the attainable later it was 73/20Mbps.


Just to make life easier for BT Staff, I had no dial tone or fibre when I moved into the house 6 months ago. This was resolved when BT came out and changed my master socket for a new 5C socket and ran a new wire / crimped the cable from outside into the back of the master socket.

I have tried sliding the faceplate off and plugging my landline into the test socket, still nothing at all.


I have no other extensions in the house.

Re: No dial tone

A fault in the exchange, or a disconnection between the exchange and the cabinet, can cause a loss of dial tone, while not affecting VDSL broadband, as that comes from the cabinet.

Most times its caused by a faulty line card or a disconnected jumper in the exchange.

Re: No dial tone

So what I need from BT is confirmation of the engineer apointment.

Is the engineer coming on Saturday morning?


If not, why not?  What happened to my appointment.

Re: No dial tone

Have you tried an alternative phone on the off chance it's the phone itself that is faulty, as already mentioned , you can have line faults that stop the telephony working , but broadband continues
(albeit usually with some reduction in speed etc) , it's worth checking the phone instrument is working , in case you get a visit, the engineer demonstrates the line working with his 'test' phone and then there is the possibility of a unneccesary visit charge being raised...if you don't have another phone to try , perhaps you could try your phone in a neighbour/friend/relative socket, or borrow one to try in your home, but a ordinary corded landline phone can be had for less than £10 , useful for situations like this, obviously you may have already established your phone is OK.
