Check / change your filters sounds as if one is faulty.
Remember you need a filter on every phone appliance.

Also remember to add/check filter on sky box telephone cable if you have sky,sometimes overlooked.

Hi fruit bat I have tried changing the filters and have tried disconecting everything els but to no avail thanks baldydave I have no sky.

The usual explanation for the situation that you describe that I have seen is that there is a high resistance connection somewhere and that the extra current of the phone is sufficient to bridge it.

Do you have interference on the line ie a sound like frying eggs?does it get worse after rain?
Is this a new connection or have you used the speedtouch for a while?
