      Strange intermittent break in dial tone...?

      Hiya all

      My line has just switched over to Sky.... and since the switch... when I am dialling... the dial tone breaks intermittently.

      No idea what it is.... is it some sort of call feature that I've got that I don't want?

      Any ideas..?

      Cheers

      Si

      Do you have 1571.

      In some areas you get a two tone dialling tone (it sounds a bit like a police car siren)

      In other areas you get a dial tone, silence, a dial tone, silence etc.

      Dialling 1571 will see if there are any messages, however if you don't have 1571, dialling this number may activate it.

      Advice given is in good faith and if taken is done so at your own risk. If in doubt consult a qualified person.
