How do I turn off my voicemail?
I am having trouble setting up my landline phone
Once your landline connection is set up, please follow the steps below:
ADSL or VDSL Connection
Use the cord from your previous connection to connect the VoIP1 Port in the modem to your landline phone.
Depending on your landline model, the name of this cord will be either RJ12 - RJ12 or RJ12- RJ11. If you no longer have this cord, you can buy a replacement from your local PB Tech, Jaycar or electronics store.
Using the grey Phone Cable that is included in your modem box, connect this cord from the VoIP Port on the modem to your landline phone.
Please note, it can take up to 3 hours for your phone to set itself up once it has been connected.
If I move house, can I keep my landline number?
Yes, you can keep your phone number. However, if you are moving to a different region please contact us to request a new number.

I have had Fibre installed, will all the phone jacks in my home still work for phone calling?
Yes, if your home’s internal wiring has been set up by the Fibre Install Technician. To check, you can connect your modem router to a phone jack on your wall. One this has been done, you should be able to plug your phone headset into any wall phone jack in your home.
My phone line is not working
If your phone line is not working, please check that your telephone handset is correctly connected to the VOIP1 port of your modem router. You may also need to reset your modem by following the steps below:
- Unplug your telephone handset from the VOIP1 port on the back of your modem.
- Power off your modem and unplug from your wall power socket.
- Wait 10 minutes before turning your modem back on and plugging in your telephone handset back into the VOIP 1 port.
Note: If you have a Fibre connection, your phone line will require an electricity supply to work. We recommend that you always have a charged mobile phone in case of emergency.
