How Did I Phone Some Emergence Service.Line Fault ?.
« on: June 19, 2019, 11:25:45 AM »

How Did I Phone Some Emergence Service.  :'(
This probably started about one month ago when after some 255 days of my DSL connection being up it dropped out with a few odd spikes on the DSLstats graph and it has done so a few more times since.  >:(
DSL has been up for 6 days with a lot more mush on the graphs.
Still got internet  :)
The phone line is 99% underground .
Having problems getting a dial tone, then after a call it is not 'clearing down'  :(
Just tried 17070 1  I heard the message but could not clear down the it timed out and got tone then that stopped then a bit of a hiss.
Unplugged this land line phone and left it, then plugged it in again and got dial tone.
Tried 17070 2 QLT  that is ok, but could not clear down.
Same at the test socket.
We normally have the land line phoned plugged in and a 'Dect phone' with two phone.

Last night I turned off the power to the Dect phone, then put it on again, no dial tone, press end call, tried for dial tone, Then I heard a woman saying If you cannot talk press a phone button or bang the hand set.. :o I said hello but she could not hear me, at that point I put the phone down and left it alone.  :hmm:

This morning still problems. unplugged the dect phone and still having problems, Ring back did not work.
Phone from my mobile and it is engaged .

Shall I report this as a Line Fault ?.

Does the line work properly with an ordinary corded phone and the DECT phone disconnected?

@ roseway     No.
Just tried another lead on the land line phone, just the same.

Then it definitely sounds like a line fault to me.

Re Accidental emergency calls, I think most lines still support pulse dialling, so a poor connection with intermittent contacts can manifest as unintentional digits. One reason the number 999 was chosen was, chances of dialling it in such a way are remote.   

Nowadays, for EU compatibility, or even EU compliance (not sure) I believe 112 must also work, but much easier to 'dial' with with random noise from an intermittent contact.

I have a feeling it was not 999 I some how dialed but I think 101 is used around here for none urgent police calls.  :-[
Just made an appointment for this Friday for a engineer to do some checks .

Maybe 112 (apparently calls the same service as 999) or 111 which is specifically for medical non-emergency.
