Faults

I’ve got a fault on my line what do I need to do?

You can contact your account manager, Partner or call business customer services on 0800 977 7337. In preparation the call handler will ask a series or fault diagnostic questions to help pin point the nature of the fault, they will also perform a line test as part of the fault diagnosis. The call handler may advise you to:

  • Locate the main socket into your premises to help determine if the fault lies here or not. The main socket is usually located where the line enters the premises
  • Unplug any extensions
  • Unscrew the front plate from the socket o Plug the phone into the ‘test socket’
  • Make a test call o If the fault still exists are you able to try a different phone in the test socket with a phone you know if working?
  • If not then the call handler will perform a test call to check the line.
  • If the line test passes then the call handler will need to book an engineer appointment for you to investigate further, they will make you aware that you may be subject to charges for this if the fault proves to be on your own equipment or wiring.
I’ve got a fault with my equipment what do I do?

You will need to know who has provided your equipment and refer back to the manufacturer who provided it.
