Digital Voice - Not receiving incoming calls (except from BT)

Go to solution

Hi, I’m having a nightmare with BT Support at the moment. I moved from Sky to BT a few years ago (taking my landline number with me) and have had several years with no issues. I’m on their 900 FTTP service again with no issues.

They then recently moved me over to Digital Voice. I received a text to say it was completed and plugged the phone into the back of the hub as instructed. I then found that nobody could call me - when I call from my mobile it states “This person’s phone is currently unavailable. Please try later or send a text.” Friends and family have all tried and none can get through. I get a dial tone on the phone and can make calls.

I’ve spoken to several BT support people and had to go through the usual checks multiple times. Was told it might be my phones (BT Premium Trio bought from BT Shop), but they sent a Qube engineer and they used a phone that would definitely work and it did did not work for them either, so does not appear to be caused by the phone. Qube engineer completely reset my hub and still didn’t work. BT support wanted to try Digital phones so sent me 2. I set one up after I received them and it still did not work.

I called them again yesterday and after going through some further checks I was told that they could see a call routing problem and that they would speak to the technical team and call me back in 15 minutes to test it. I have received no call back from them nearly 24 hours later and it is still not working this morning.

I’ve seen some posts from others on here that have had similar issues. Would one of the mods be able to help?

Many thanks

I’ve tried that number and it just seems to always go to normal CS. They have logged my fault as fixed in the system, but it is not!

the number defaults to CS if number busy - sorry but you have to just persevere

I just went through to CS just to get the fault re opened and go through the same questions for the nth time. But at least I got some further information. They said that this is a porting issue from Sky and an engineer will need to be sent to fix a problem outside of my property.
