phone not working
Access to my NBN broadband (cable) recently started to slow down eventually stopping altogether. After several hours messaging Telstra help, they realized that there was a problem at their end. This was fixed but at the same time that the NBN speed was restored our phone line died. It seems the two must be linked. A couple of more hours with Telstra help did not resolve the issue so a technician was booked to come to our house. They never turned up and I received a message (which disappeared from the mobile phone after I read it) that the problem was solved. It is not!
Can anyone advise what to do next? I have done all the standard tests, reset the modem, used the on-line troubleshooting, replaced the phone and cables, etc etc.

Re: phone not working
If your modem is a Telstra Smart Modem 2, try forcing the modem into 4G backup mode by disconnecting the cable in the grey DSL port or the red WAN port and wait a few minutes for the modem to switch into 4G Backup mode which will show as a steady blue indicator on the front.. then see if your home phone works (it may take a couple more minutes to register properly)...
Too many devices, probably an addict :-) also a tinkerer and developer of stuff..
Not with Telstra, just another customer like you!
