Since connecting to NBN about two weeks ago, my landline has not been working. I thought the old phone may not be compatible so I changed it. That didnt work. I chatted online to Optus on Friday 14/9, they eventually told me it needed to be escalated to the "backend team"" and I would be contacted within 24 hours. Nothing back from Optus so went online chat again on Monday 17/9. After answering all gthe same questions again I was told that it needed to be escalated to the next level. I thought they had already done this, but apparently not. So it would now be between 24 to 48 hours before they contacted me. On Wednesday 19/9 after no contact from Optus I went online again, with the same result as before, they needed to escalate and would be back to me within 24 hours. Today Friday 21st, still no contact so I went online again. Again they told me the very same thing, it will be escalated to the next level and will be between 24 and 72 hours before someone contacts me.
Is this typical of what happens or is my case unusual?
What type of NBN do you have? Are you connecting your phone to the back of the modem or into the exisiting telephone socket on the wall?
thank you for confirming the details. From what you are describing the connection paths are correct. It could be an activation issue on the back end.
Hey @OBroin - sounds like you've been escalated to our case management team. Were you given any reference numbers we could look into?
They tried many times but your phone was not working.
Just kidding, good to hear that it is now resolved.
