Hi, desperatly need help resolving. Home phone has no dial tone however it will ring when incoming call but I cannot answer...when I pick up I can faintly hear the ringing in the earpiece. I've tried all the troubelshooting, switch off, switch on, disconnect from modem, unplug cables, etc. What is worse in OPTUS poor customer support! This has been going for more than 2 months yet it's impossible to contact them...despite 1+hour calls then cut off advising call centre closed. After many days waiting for further contact from my message, I received a voicemail to call the customer support number. gues what...their message said it was CLOSED! any help appreciated or maybe I should just go to TIO.
