I had the NBN installed on 03/02/2020.  I have my phone hooked up to the Phone 1 socket on the modem TPG provided (Archer VR1600v).  Phone 1 light is lit up.  I can make outgoing phone calls but cannot receive incoming calls.  It has been this way for 10 days now.

 

Can this please be looked into.

@Riezl, yes the phone is now finally working after nearly two weeks of frustration. 

 

However during the course of those two weeks I was told on at least four occasions that my phone 'shows as registered and should be working', when clearly it wasn't. It seems to be your stock standard response. Here's a pro tip for you - people wouldn't contact you if it was working.

 

I was also promised callbacks on multiple occasions and didn't receive them.  Even when I did receive a callback it was in the morning when I specified on numerous occasions that I needed to be called in the evening.

 

I'd say your customer support definitely has plenty of room for improvement..

Case engineer rang at 8:45am this morning on my mobile number. He asked me to do a hard reset of the modem.  He then told me he'd run some more tests and call me back in 15-30 minutes  Nearly 6 hours later and I'm still waiting.   Up until now I have at least been able to make outgoing calls, but since the modem reset I can no longer do that either. So that's now 12 days without a functioning phone service.

Apologies if you haven't not received a callback from our Engineering Team, @robbauer.

 

Your phone shows registered now, which means that it should be properly working. Are you able to test if you can make/receive calls?

 

If you're still having issues, please let us know so we can investigate further. Thank you.
