Back in August I realised that I could no longer send text messages over the PSTN using my DECT phone, which is a Gigaset phone. Initially I thought this was down to the phone, however, I have also tried this with a relatives BT 8500, which has the same capability and again have been unable to send texts. This was a useful feature as I had it set up to send a text to my mobile phone if my landline was rung and not answered. Given that I have the same issue on two different makes of phone is there a network issue, or has BT withdrawn this service without notification.
Please note that I can still receive texts sent to my landline, but I can't send them.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi, @Dilbert01 Welcome to the community and thanks for posting, it hasn't been withdrawn from the PSTN network.
Can you try texting 'register' to 00000 and let me know if that helps? This will test the service.
