internet working but no phone line?

Here I am connected to Bt Broadband but the phone line is not working (was yesterday). How can this happen? Have tried phone/s in other sockets etc. Appreciate this is probably a BT thing but need to use dial up to access work computer tonight.

Are you using a BB filter

  Rubyiat 22:44 07 Apr 2005

yes I have been using the filter, phone line and broadband connection quite happily for two years now. Bt web site just says call line fault number- it implies that you can have a broadband connection but no phone signal but doesn't explain why - very annoying

Then they should put it right

I'll be on to them in the morning. Thanks

Its possible to still have BB without a usable phone.I had BT disconnect my home phone (a very long story)and I could still continue surfing via BB for months afterwards.It only stopped working when BT's monitoring discovered the line was no longer being used and terminated the connection completely.
