Phone Connection on NBN

SOLVED Go to solution
Level 2

Hi, I have the NBN with home phone and the phone is connected straight into the NBN box on the wall. The phone worked for the first week but now I can not make or recieve calls. When I pick up the handset there is no dial tone and when someone rings the phone will ring but as soon as I answer it the call drops out. I have tried the two different phone ports and turn the box on and off but the problem still persists. My account shows as still be active. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi michaeltatt87

 

Welcome to TPG Community! 

 

I've managed to pull up an account using your Community details and ran remote tests which gave inconclusive results. 

 

We're sorry to learn that you're experiencing issues with the connection. I understand that you have tried testing multiple ports however the activated port for your phone line is the UNIV-1. You can try doing a factory reset on the NBN box. If you remove the cover, you will see a small pinhole that says 'reset' on the bottom part of the box. Press and hold it for 5 seconds or until all the lights on the box go blinking. 

 

Once done, wait until you get the lights back on the 'Optical' and 'UNID-1' then you can test the homephone again. 

 

If above steps failed, kindly send me your best contact time & number via private message so I can organise a call back to be made from our Technical Team for further assistance. 

 

 

We'll await for your response. 

 

 

Cheers!
