      Strange Dialing Tone!

      My Mum switched to Sky talk a few months ago no problem. But a friend of hers has complained that she had left messages but my Mum hadn't responded. So I explained to my Mum about listening for an intermittent dial tone and then dial 1571. No problem but when we had deleted all the voicemail messages that were on there. We are now left with a 2 tone dial tone, it keeps going Hi and Low like the old style police siring evening though if you do 1571 it says no new or old messages stored. There is no pause in the tone just continuously switching between a hi and low sound.
      Any ideas anyone??

      Cheers
      Kev.

      Is it very loud? It sounds like an alert tone to let a subscriber know that a phone has not been hung up properly.

      How long did you leave it before checking the tone. The system might need refresh time.

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

      Thanks for the replies, no it's not overly loud just like a normal dial tone. But 2 tone going hi and low. I will check if it is still there when I visit her tomorrow.

      Cheers!

      Ring the phone and leave a voicemail. Call through to 1571 again and delete the message that has just been left.

      Try that and check if that clears the tone.
