Landline after Sky ultrafast fitted

I have had ultrafast fibre fitted on Tuesday (previously super fast) and everything is working fine apart from the landline phone.It is not taking incoming calls at all (when I ring it says you have dialled an incorrect number) but it can still make outgoing calls ok!

Funny thing is when I rang the 07 sky number to check it added two zeros at the end of the number but ringing that as well still would not get through.

Have switched ONT box off and reset router to no avail and voice is on green but it obviously partly working but wondering if I have missed something simple.

Many thanks in advance

@Frankie190  Is the phone still connected to the master socket or is it in the back of the router?

Hi Highlinder,

 

Thanks for coming back to me.

Apologies forgot to mention the phone socket is correctly in the back of the router in the correct port and not in the master socket as before.

@Frankie190  Have you re-booted the router at all and is the voice light green or amber or off?

@Frankie190  It sounds like something has not been switched right moving from superfast to ultrafast.  With you being able to make outgoing calls you can call Sky or this can be escalated to the messaging team to save you calling.

@Frankie190 just a thought - have you checked that you still have the same number? Dial 17070,and the recorded message will give you the number for the line.

Hi Mark39

I have dialled the number and it has given me the same number as normal but with anothe two zero's at the end of it!

Do not know why but tried  to dial that as well and still did not work!

 That doesn't sound right. Sounds like either a fault or the,switch to Ultrafast hasn't fully completed. Do follow up with the private chat you've been invited to.

Hi Clare20,

 

I have had a chat with an advisor who checked the line but could not find a fault so they have escalated it further to their Network team who are running further checks and will come back to me.

So at the moment no it is not sorted yet.
