I was talking to the support team online but got disconnected and now cannot join the chat service.
So my Internet seems OK but I have no dial tone on my landline. It was working OK this morning.
The agent I was chatting to advised there was a fault on my phone line. I tried calling my home phone from my mobile, mobile acted like it was calling but my landline did not ring.
I got up to connecting my line into the test socket when my 4G decided to disconnect (poor signal where I live), so unsure what was next in the process.
I have also tried switching everything off at the plug socket and turning it back on about 30 seconds later. No luck.
Still no dial tone on my phone - is anybody able to help? Is it the line or my hand set?

I have exactly the same problem, no ring tone on the landline so can’t make outgoing or answer in coming calls. I happened to be stood in front of the phone and for a second I could see someone was calling as their number flashed up, but when I picked up the handset the call didn’t connect. I’ve called the landline from my mobile and it rings out but the landline doesn’t ring. I’ve changed the cable from the phone to line wall socket but it made no difference. The internet is working fine, but I need to get the landline sorted urgently as my mum is serious I’ll in hospital and I need the phone to be working!

If possible, try another handset, @PhilG.
Borrow one from a neighbour....?
Chat is available again from 9am.
Phone help also opens at 9am, if you want to speak to them from your mobile:
