Older phones may no longer work on your BT Retail phone line, especially if they do not support tone dialling. Most phone now only have two wires, and are tone dialling only.

If yours has more wires, then it may be an old dial phone which has a mechanical bell and a rotary dial, and has a separate "bell" wire

Search Google for a pulse-dial to touch-tone in-line converter.

Thanks for that it sound interesting. I will definitely check that out. Just one more question, is this converter suitable for all phones or do I have to specify that is for the U.K.system?

It would have to be for UK usage, as the DTMF tones that are transmitted would have to match the BT exchanges.
