Answerphone restricting net connection

When I have a message on my onetel answerphone I am unable to connect to the internet until I have deleted it - I just get a message saying 'There is no dialtone' (When I have a Message waiting there is an intermittent interrupted tone to tell me so) Is there a way to overcome this?

This is common. The only way round it is (as you say) delete any waiting messages. Or take off 1571.

Sorry, yes I'm on dial-up. Thing is, I can connect OK on this and another PC, but not on my main one, so maybe some modems let you and some don't? Or is there somewhere to change settings?
