Hi everyone, not a big problem but may as well ask. I have 2 phones,
just basic house phones both wired. They both ring and work OK independently
but if someone picks up the downstairs one they other goes dead
(as if it is not plugged in) fine again once the
downstairs one is finished with.
I swopped them over and then could not get a dial tone on either!!! I don't know what is wrong, I will speak to a BT engineer, who is a friend and see if he can sort it next time he visits or buy some new phones but I don't want to do that and have the same problem. Thanks for your suggestions, as I say it is no real problem just annoying sometimes.
I have three normal land line phones. The master one is near my computer, there is another one upstairs in one of the bedrooms and another one downstairs near the front door. I did the internal wiring from the master socket and have not had any problems. The master socket is one of the latest NTE5 ones.
I would try two different phones, with one disconnected to see if it is a fault with the socket.
Have you tried ringing one phone from a mobile?
Hope this helps.
