phone dial tone has changed

when lifting the land line phone receiver the dial tone for as long as Bell invented the telephone has been a constant and continuous burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr sound, at least on both of mine anyway

 

however, recently mine has changed to something different; best described as a series of quick interupted brr brr brr brr brr brr brr

 

other than that the phone works ok

Wow, somebody left something on your voicemail. You must have a secret friend.

Re: phone dial tone has changed

voice mail??

 

something I've never used in the 15 years I've had the phone

 

and it is something I dont want due to all the spam calls nowadays with some parasite trying to scam one

 

how do you use it?

Re: phone dial tone has changed

Spammers don't leave messages. They only pick on people who are silly enough to answer calls.

Maybe it's Optus calling you, to tell you that you have voicemail
