Does anyone know how it got resolved, because I have exactly the same symptoms at my holiday flat.
I thought I had a problem before I came here because, when I tried to access my answer machine remotely, it just 'rang' without answering.
Now I'm here, I can confirm that it doesn't ring at all - although the caller hears ring tone.
If I do a ringback test, the phone detects that a call is coming in - and displays caller ID - but no ring. I've tried several phones - including one which tests ok on a neighbour's line - and none rings, even when plugged into the test socket on the master with nothing else connected.
I can make outgoing calls, and there's no noise on the line. ADSL on the line works perfectly - it's just ring that's missing.
I've reported it to BT, whose automated test doesn't show a fault. They could send an engineer, but that comes with warnings of a £99 charge if it turns out to be anything at my end.
I don't see how it *can* be anything that's my responsibility. Am I missing anything?
