For the last twenty five minutes they have played piano music at me, thanking me for my patience. As they phoned me I can't use my phone to dial out.

Seriously this is really inconsiderate as well as being thoroughly annoying. Grrrhhhh

do you have a mobile? Contact your phoneline provider and ask them to clear the line for you. Or if you have someone with the same provider, use their phone to ring them

I do have a mobile, tbh we don't use the landline that much but its the principle! This would really unsettle my gran if this happened to her.

I will phone our provider thanks smile

Unplug it at the wall, wait 30 seconds and plug it back in.

Yes. Unplug it. It will cut the connection. Solved.

Right, off to find the socket. Silly wireless phones.

Before MN we just talked to ourselves.
