Intermittent issues of making and receiving calls

Over the last few days I am having issues receiving and making calls intermittently. When ringing the landline the call appear as if it was cut off before the phone rings (and phone showing 1 missed call) even though on the other side (e.g from mobile phone it sounds like the landline is ringing). Voice messages also went to Talktalk Voicemail even though we have an answering machine.

The issue is recent, I have tried another landline phone with similar issue. Calls missed are often important calls from family members.

Please help.

Hi SaifulZ,

 

I'm sorry to hear this and I'll take a look now. I've run a test on the line which has detected a possible fault. Could I just confirm, do you have a dial tone?

 

Thanks

Thanks for looking into this. The dial tone is missing the majority of the time but available now and again, no specific patterns. Broadband is not affected at all.

Hi SaifulZ

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Have you tested with a different phone?

 

Would it be possible to connect just the phone at the test socket so we can run another line test in this set up?

 

Thanks

Hi, i have now connected the phone to the master/test socket again. I tried this a few days ago for 24 hours and the issue appear to persist while phone is on the test socket.
I have tried with another phone and results are similar with issues making and receiving calls.

Hi SaifulZ

 

Thanks for the Private Message.

 

Yes you can now connect your phone and router back to your usual set up, thanks for testing this.

 

I have raised this fault over to Openreach to be investigated by a line engineer. Please can you post back on this thread tomorrow and we can check for further updates.

 

Thanks
