Buying a Krone-type 2A insertion tool by Alex Bell
I'm looking to buy a good quality Krone-type 2A IDC tool without paying over the odds for it. It'd be for personal rather than professional use, so spending 25 for the real deal isn't really necessary. Might the cognoscenti of uk.telecom be able to offer any recommendations of what to buy, and where to buy it? (Online retailers etc.) TIA.

Bt 300a Test Phone/buttset by oldmoley
Has anyone out there any experience of the 300A Buttset? I have just acquired a couple of these. One is completely dead, although battery power is getting through to the PCB; how far is anyone's guess. Were there any known problems in this respect? The second set works pretty well, but I am unsure as to what I should be hearing through the speaker. If I dial a number, the DTMF tones are only...

XN120 Auto Attendant 1 digit press to mailbox by Lectrician
I have auto attendant setup on my ISDN lines happily. It answers calls, and lets you press 1, 2, 3 for different information messages, and then at the end of each message "If you want to leave us a message, press 0". I then have 0 pointing to an SLT entension with an answerphone on it. I wanted to remove the answerphone, and have 0 point to a mailbox (602 for example, being mailbox 2). This...

Continuous ring - both phones by Sydney Lotterby
Telecommers: BT landline - second line to household, two phones branched off it. After intermittent occasions of continuous ringing, previously cured by picking up and hanging up, the continuous ringing is now ..continuous.. and incurable by hangup. Worse, BOTH phones on the line continuously ring. (The primary line is unaffected). Worse yet, BT claim there is no fault on the line.

BT Versatility Site to Site by Darv
Hi, I understand that you can connect two BTV's together but this requires a subscription to BT's communications servers. Is there any way I can avoid this and set the system up to connect via a VPN? Essentially, I want to connect my main office with my branch office? Thanks!

BT Versatility Commissioning Call by [email protected]
I've just installed and programmed a BT versatility phone system in my unit. Everything is working but extn 20 says "Commission System" on the display. The installation manual talks about initiating a call into RACE to commission the system (you must provide a phone number plus customer id). After a successful call the prompt will be removed. Does anyone know what this (RACE) is, or a workaround...

UK ring tone when abroad by kesm
I have a work mobile phone that is under the Vodafone network. I need to go abroad for a while, so I need my mobile number to ring with a UK ring tone. So when someone calls me and I am abroad, they will still hear the UK ring tone, and they will think I am in the UK. How can I make this happen? I heard that some companies offer the option of buying a UK number from them, where your mobile...

XN120 DDI Name Display by Lectrician
Hi. I have ISDN coming into the system, and a couple DDI's. The DDI's ring different phones, but on a couple phones, they can ring for either DDI's. With no caller display on the line (witheld, or before the caller ID was activated), the screen on the phones would show the DDI name on the top line and RINGING on the bottom line. With caller ID enabled, and with a non witheld number, the...

XN120 DDI Auto Attendant by Lectrician
Hi. I have an XN120 on analouge lines running well, and each line as a seperate auto attendant system with press 1, press 2 etc. I am changing to ISDN lines, and wanted to have the main number goto one auto attendant, and a DDI goto another. It looks like auto attendant is attached to the line though, so if you direct a DDI to the auto attendant, it will have to be the same one as the lines...

Xn120 So Interface by Lectrician
Hi. I have an XN120 with a 4 port BRI card. The four ports work when connected to an ISDN line. I wanted to do some testing of the BRI incoming settings, and thought I could set two of the BRI ports to S mode (right clicking in card config, select ports). Also switching the polarity on the card on the two ports. I just cannot get the SO mode working though, no dial tone to either a trunk...
