Today I am sat in my office. I blame BT for this. Even though they're not my isp, its their crappy exchange, and their crappy phone line, and their complete can't be fucking arsed about anything attitude.

Apparently my tie pairs are being changed. With the intention that it will solve the 10 or so drop outs I get daily.

What d'ya reckon are the odds?

It'll reduce it to about 4 dropouts

The strange thing is, we've plugged a phone in at home for the last week or so, and we're getting loads of wrong number calls through for the same people. Someone apparently argued with Blackbat that we hadn't been the only residents at the house since it was built... :-?

I don't really have a clue how phone lines work, but I'm suspicious we've been given the same number as someone else...

don't they just recycle numbers?

e.g. if person x has a number with BT but changes phone provider and decides against taking the number with them, or maybe even perhaps moves in with someone who has a number already, the number is released.

potentially person y might get given the number later on.

Blackbat's dealing with it, so I don't know... but I thought he said this other person had been registered with our number since we've had our line.

Yes but they're giving the date it was listed as November last year; when I've had it since March last year.

Maybe next time they ring, we should ask if they've ever managed to speak to the person they're after?

I think it's definitely worth mentioning next time you're on to the phone company.

what happens when you try ringing your number from your phone? does it give the engaged tone because you've picked up or try their line? :scratch:

You mean from the phone itself? Dunno, not tried. Can ring out from it ok though, not that I do for anything other than freephone numbers. With a bit of luck, when they finally fix whatever the fork is breaking my tinernets, it'll be unplugged again and forgotten about.

But if we are sharing a line with someone else, that could be what's fucking up the internet? Is that possible, or am I just showing I've got as much knowledge as a carrot when it comes to phone lines?
