Sent me Hub but no landline

Go to solution

Hi,

Just wondering, the BT service sent me the hub. When the engineer called he asked if i had the phone sent to me yet but i haven’t. I got the hub over a week ago? Is this something i need to buy on its own?

@Gracie2 

What sort of broadband connection do you have, it it a direct fibre into your house, with a box on the wall with lots of lights on it?

Could the phone that you are waiting for, be one of the new digital voice phones?

All i know is that they’ve sent me the BT smart hub, i’ve never had wi-fi before (as only just moved out) so i needed an engineer to install the landline. But that’s only as far as what i know. Thanks

Do you have a phone socket in the house which looks like one of these?

Normally you would use your own phone, unless you have purchased on from BT.

When is your broadband due to be activated?

BT would not normally supply you with a phone, unless you had placed an order for one. Normally you would buy your own, A basic wired phone costs about £10.

Did you order one as part of your package?

If you are not fussed about anything special, then Argos inside Sainsbury, do a basic corded phones, or you can look online.

If you want a cordless one, then they cost a bit more.

You can also look on the BT Shop. https://www.argos.co.uk/browse/technology/telephones-and-accessories/c:29950/
