Crime by 2friars
A victim who receives an abusive message to a standard UK mobile from a 15 digit number such as: 425450617970265 ?? has been text by what means? The text says "from: BT Payphones" Is it a signature for a BT txt-enabled call box? Is it an online web-phone txt service? Is it a foreign number/service?

Bt wiring problem by sidge123
Hi I am struggling with a rather old BT wiring system. We have a teelgraph pole and the wire comes into the loft it then joins a brown junction box type contraption with 8 terminals in two rows of 4. Two wires come from the outside and then join a modern white cable with the standard white/blue/green/orange wires. This then leads down to a master box which has the telephone plugged in. The...

How to repogram an ntl smart box for 18866 by Nigel
Dear all: The subject says it all really! 18866 don't offer Carrier Pre Select, so as I have an ntl smart box (that dials 1263) I'd like to reprogram this to pre dial 18866 for all my calls except 0800 free calls. Can anyone advise if it is possible to do this - and if so, how? If not possible any suggestions?

Panasonic Systems KXTDE - Any good? by bcv
Hi, We're looking for a new phone system and have been shown Panasonic KX-TDA, KX-TDE as well as some BCM50. Is there any reason why we should avoid any of these with a barge pole? We are probably going for the IP phone route. About 40 users.

BT Hawk tester by Liam1f
I have recently bought a BT Hawk tester, with an intention of using the TDR function to check for damaged cables. This machine does far more than I was expecting it to, and did not come with a user manual. I can figure out quite a lot by just playing about with it, but does anyone know how to use it for real? Particularly the TDR function? I have contacted Spirent, the manufacturers, who have...

Phone and ADSL socket by cicero100
I'm new to this forum but hoping some kind person will help me with a query please? The BT phone socket (the main one connecting to the outside cable that is) has been carefully positioned at literally floor level and as such means the carpet has to be cut around it and the filter and splitter for my broadband and phone sticks out into the room. I've seen a box advertised on Ebay which says it...

Help Wiring BT78B by Abs
Hello, I'm new here & also a complete idiot when it comes to these things so please forgive me in advance. In our property once the outside telephone wire comes into the flat it reaches a box BT78B which has somehow come undone along with a few of the wires. Our internet connection is not the most reliable so I'm guessing this is why (I know, I'm some sort of genius). Does anyone out there know...
