Default Re: Does your telecom provider support pulse dialling?

A little off topic - but there are hand held tone generators available so that a standard phone can still be used on lines that no longer support pulse.

I must get one for the future!

There are only 10 types of people, those who understand the binary system, and those who don't.

done this, all works fine on BT line, just not on Talk Talk, Tried my 706 on mums line with same results, works sometimes, tone phones work all times with no probs.
As per previous posts on this thread, Talk Talk offer no support on pulse dial, I was just pointing out that it does sometimes work.

Sounds to me as though the technology (as opposed to Talk Talk themselves) supports LD dialling but is much more fussy about timing than standard BT. If you have access to a 'phone that generates LD pulses electronically, you would probably find that it works more reliably - thus proving the point.
