Re: No phone line

Did you buy just the handset, or a complete set up with base?

If a base station, are you definitely plugging it into phone?

Have you rebooted your modem?

Re: No phone line

It's a complete base and plugged directly onto the modem and have reset it

Re: No phone line

Is the phone base plugged into the green phone port on the modem. Is the phone light on back of modem (Gen 2 modems) or top of the modem (Gen 1 modems) green?

It's plugged into the the green phone line. I took my hand set back and got a refund as they said I had to go and buy one that was nbn compatible not nbn ready. Same thing it, it doesn't work.

Re: No phone line

I bought a Panasonic from JB with 4 handsets and bsttery back up for base for $110. That works. 

Is your modem a Technicolor or Arcadyane?
