I have successfully connected internet with new modem, but there is no phone service. I have dial tone, but cannot make outgoing calls. When number is called from my mobile I get a message-not connected.

Could you please check and let me know what I need to do next? Many thanks. Kaz

Hi @Kaz did you just get the NBN connected today? If so it can take up to a day or two to port your number across from your previous PSTN operator, in reality it can happen much sooner. What model Modem / Router are you using? The Huawei HG 659 for instance will generate a dial tone if the VOIP service is active even before the number is ported.

My connection was last week. Am using tpg modem provided. Just not sure what is next step.

Hi @Kaz as long as you have a green VOIP light on the modem and your phone or cordless base station is plugged into the phone 1 socket on the modem that's all you need to do normally.

If it was a TPG supplied modem it would've been configured with the correct VOIP settings.

If you've changed any settings try and put the modem back to a factory reset state which actually puts it back to how it was shipped to you rather than how it left the factory.

 If that fails just call Technical support on 13 14 23 (option 2)

Hi @Kaz,

Welcome to the Community!

We have managed to locate an account using your community details and was able to check the status of the service.

We are not detecting any fault on the network at the moment, but we have refreshed the connection. Are you able to check if the phone service is now working?

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