      If your phone isn't working & line rental is with BT then call them first.

      If its the actual junction box on the street call BT and report it, they will likely send an engineer out to it.

      As for calling Sky, ask your wife to put a password on the account. As long as there is one on and you know it, they can access the account and deal with you.

      Just phone bt and reported the damage to the green street cabinet.if I catch sight of the btor engineer outside do u think it would be rude of me to ask him to make sure my line is connected at the green street box? Or is that a no no?.I am 99.99% sure that is the problem .steve

      Sure, it would be worth a try, but you're best calling Sky (once you have the password to your wife's account) and having them log the fault to Openreach.
