The message began by announcing, with eye-watering self-importance: “It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for. Now when you switch provider, you may also be offered the option to eschew a phone line altogether – previously something only offered by a handful of providers. However, unlike on a traditional line where you connect the handset to a phone socket in the wall (i.

When telecare provider Taking Care surveyed a representative sample of more than 2,000 UK adults in March 2021, they found that 91% were unaware that all phone lines would become digital by the end of 2025. To use these handsets you'll need to have moved over to the BT Digital voice phone service or they won't work. But those who don't have access to a mobile phone must not be left without a way to seek help in an emergency.VoIP converts your voice into a digital signal, so that it can be sent between computers and other devices on the internet. While some phones might require an adaptor, many will continue working (particularly DECT cordless phones) – you'll just have to plug yours into your router or a new socket.

I see that BT is offering a free BT Digital Voice Adapter or a BT Advanced Digital Home Phone with Alexa built-in. The answerphone is impressive too, holding up to 60 minutes of recordings, any of which can be listened to remotely if you’re away from home. It means that, instead of plugging your phone into the telephone socket in the wall, you plug it into the back of your “wireless router”.Not everyone has a broadband connection through their phone line – they won’t – they haven’t signed up to BT Broadband. Alexa is the main draw here, but BT has also detailed other features that will be present in the Advanced Digital Home Phone. Digital Voice technology carries a wider range of audio frequencies so you’ll get more natural sounding audio with less background noise when you’re talking on the phone. Even if you’re still some way off migrating to Digital Voice, it’s worth contacting your burglar alarm provider to find out more about whether it will still work. Exceptions can be if you change providers before you take a digital phone service, or if you change address – speak with your provider to discuss your specific circumstances.

People with chronic medical conditions in rural districts, where mobile signal is poor are concerned with what happens when the 21st century “World Beating” flown power supply goes down. On the switch over day, I disconnected the phone cable from the Optical Network Terminal (ONT) and reconnected it to the Smart Hub 2.You'll be able to keep the same phone number and will still hear a dial tone when you lift the handset. We'll be in contact when it's time to switch over, with simple instructions on what to do when it's your turn to make the switch. The plan is for it to be switched off at the end of 2025 and for all landline services to be offered digitally.

It's not hands-free, though - you will need to press the dedicated Alexa button to invoke the assistant. If you have a telecare or healthcare alarm or a burglar alarm, it may not be supported on Digital Voice.However, be cautious if you feel pressured to pay large sums to upgrade your system to work with Digital Voice - you should be given plenty of time to weigh up potential options. It screens out most but some still get through but you can add the number to the blacklist but as scammers constantly change the numbers they use it seems a pretty pointless exercise.
