I have a question for Phil.

When I ring the 0800 support number it gives me some prerecorded tips on how to solve my problem. One of these is to "turn my router off and wait 10 seconds and turn it on again" (or words to that effect).

Every time I do this my phone dies and I have to ring back again again.

Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? Should this happen?

Seeing as you are on a TCL cable connection and using a VFX phone then yes, this is the correct procedure and resulting action.

Ensure you keep following the above process exactly please Mr Biddle.

That would not happen if you brought your router from Biddle Router Corp.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Surely Biddle Telecommunications could offer an alternative solution?

What? Does VoIP uses the tubes?

That's the problems. All that gambling (1, 2) is clogging up the tubes!

Simple, just do what everyon else does and don't follow the steps that the help desk tells you to do.  My wife does support for SolidWorks and she will tell you that everyone she helps agree that that is how you solve your problems (second to blaming the uselss software that you had to copy off a student and now can't get support for after spending hours installing it).
