I have recently come off a previous NBN/Home phone packaged plan, so I've moved to a new plan now.
A new Fetch TV box & a new NBN modem delivered by courier.
Installation was smooth sailing until I realised that the 'phone' LED ligth remains off.
Logged on to the 192.168.0.1 admin page, and it says 'Phone 1' & 'Phone 2' SIP status as 'Disabled'.
On my latest bill showing the new plan, it shows my home phone number. Anyone has any idea who to call? I just called a number on the NBN model manual's Phone page, and had to go through a very long list of IVR menus, and put into a long on-hold queue... so I hung up and spoke to someone on the online chat.
Unfortunately that person was a Mobile sales person and couldn't transfer my chat to relevant team. Anyone had similar issues after receiving a new modem? Any idea how to get home phone working again, or at least who to call?
Sorry about all the trouble with your phone service @australiasquare! Were you able to get this sorted? If not, please touch base with our tech support guys on 1300300427 or get in touch here so our tech support guys can investigate further.
I was able to eventually speak to someone in the maze of IVR menus.
Not sure if the number I called is what you have mentioned, but the tech support person was very helpful.
While he couldn't fix it on the spot, he got it to the right people to sort out on that evening.
Again it would have been better if the configuration was done correctly on the modem when it was sent to me - because Optus has my account/plan details that I have landline service. And the new NBN modems provide landline service via SIP.
But the modem said both SIP1 and SIP2 ports were disabled. The tech support must have remotely pushed config changes to the modem.
Anyhow all is well. Thank you for following it up.
Ah! Great news - glad you were able to get it sorted, sorry about all the hassle getting to this point though. Do let us know if you ever need a hand with anything else down the track 🙂
I am having similar issues.... Moved to NBN and internet was working while NBN technician was still on premise. Very promising.
But Phone is not working. Good steady green light and even get dial tone. But when I dial a number I get busy tone. And when I ring it I get a message to check the number and try again!!!!
If that's the case it's definitely best to touch base with our tech support guys on 13 13 44 or via Live Chat to get this looked into @Geoffa56, to ensure it isn't the same issue as @australiasquare had.
Oh no 😞 Not the kind of experience we'd want you to be having @Big_Pappa_Smurf.
