Because I'm a member here, I did the old unplug every phone in the house and try again etc tests before calling Telecom. After swapping the filter on the cordless phone (we're lucky enough to have a few spares) there is no dialtone on the line. The same goes for the other (corded) phone in the house.
Having done this I called up Telecom Saturday morning and was pretty impressed as usual with their service - I don't think I've ever waited more than a couple of minute to speak to a 'technician'. Unfortunately no one could come out until Monday between 2 and 6pm but we couldn't guarantee there would be someone home, it means we don't have a working phone until Tuesday morning.
But I was a bit surprised that, as we weren't getting any incoming calls, that they didn't ask if we wanted get calls forwarded to a cellphone? It's a bit rough to be paying for a service that you're not even able to use.
I noticed the guy on the phone was able to disconnect and connect our router, so it seems to be limited to our POTs connection.
The Chorus folks have been working on installing our Cabinet, but I don't think thats the problem.
