PlusNet please help - elderly couple home phone not working

I am writing on behalf of an elderly couple with PlusNet whose home phone isn't working.

They do not know how to use internet or how to login to their account so cannot raise a fault.

Their internet connection is working but no ring tone on phone. They have a mobile phone but not a smart phone.

I have tried stepping through the diagnostic check with them on cell phone and no ring tone - need to raise a fault but they don't know their password or even that they need one. Attempt to reset password resulted in an email to them with a reset link that they couldn't cope with.

If someone from PlusNet can contact me I can give you their details. The landline is important to them despite having a mobile and this is proving quite stressful for them.

Thank you

@Bookart  Welcome to the forum.

This is most probably caused by a break in one of the two wires coming into their property. Changing passwords will not help at all.

If you get no reply you could try ringing in tomorrow. If you get diverted here it's because the queue is long, they're still working. It's a case of ringing back a bit later.

Re: PlusNet please help - elderly couple home phone not working

Lauren, sorry to piggy back on somebody else's error but my brother has fully functional broadband with you but landline phone won't work.  He hasn;t been able to access Members Centre on website for over 12 months.

 

Yesterday he reset his password, and still couldn't get in.  I said I would phoen for him this morning and you're not taking any calls.

 

He is firstline response for our 93-year old mother but can;t get any calls from Age UK emergency line on his landline and mobile is variable.  How can we fix this.  I ahve his user name password and landline number.  Be happy for somebody to call me - I have been a PN customer since PN took over from my previous ISP and never had a problem. He seems to get the bad luck!

Welcome to the Forum@Ian-B 

This thread as been marked as fixed. It is quite possible therefore that Plusnet staffers may no longer look at it. In your position, I would start my own, new thread.
