House phone selectively recieving calls

My mum has sky but her phone is with bt, she has a upstairs phone and a downstairs phone both corded but different sorts, when i tray and call her it rings once my end, sometimes not all all and clicks it then either cuts off or comes up on my mobile as on hold then cuts off, it doesnt ring my mums end but bleeps once, 1 in about 20 times it will ring properly and thats it shes already checked lines are fine and advised was something to do with phones she has new phones but is still doing it also tried different connectors and still no luck but not everyone has the problem getting through can anyone advise what the problem could be, she can make calls no problem on on either phone and both phones ring no problem when it does ring but neither ring and just bleeps when it doesnt? Could it be because handsets are different? Its really annoying me now as shes not the sort to always have her mobile on

Re: House phone selectively recieving calls

It is very unusual to had broadband with one ISP and phone with another.  Does your mother not pay sky for a complete package which includes her phone calls?

It is very common for people to assume they get there phone from 'BT' where in fact it is not BT Retail but their own ISP using the same openreach phone network

Re: House phone selectively recieving calls

I would suggest you raise your problem with your mother's ISP SKY

Re: House phone selectively recieving calls

But you mother is a sky customer not BT Retail. 

It is common for people to associate their phone line with BT whereas it has nothing to do with our ISP BT Retail but the line belongs to openreach and there is no more contact with openreach from this forum than there is using the SKY forum

Re: House phone selectively recieving calls

As I said already ask your mother if her broadband package is with sky which includes line rental. As far as I am aware Sky does not do broadband without line rental

dial 151 and see if it takes you to BT CS

Re: House phone selectively recieving calls

Does she have a broadband package?

I also have sky TV, but BT BB and phone. Just because you have sky that does not mean they supply BB and phone service.
