I have just bought a new build with superfast broadband. On connecting my 8500 landline from my last home it comes up with Line cord error. I thought to try another phone but a neighbour says all the houses have been built to use WiFi only phones which is a bit daft for power outages. I'm confused looking at phones as none seem to mention WiFi apart from synching mobiles. Are these the phones I should be looking at to buy?
Solved! Go to Solution.
do you have BT FTTP? if so do you have digital voice? if you have the SH2 your phone will connect to phone socket on back of hub. The connection is not wifi but the SH2 acts as a dect base station
there are a few post where customers have connected their existing dect cordless phones to the phone socket on back SH2 and they work ok
Many thanks. Yes I have FTTP but had never heard of digital voice. I just looked at the back of the router and it had a digital voice sticker covering the access for the telephone. I now have a dial tone. You have saved me buying new phones so thanks again.
