    Does anyone know if it costs money to call 123 from a Vodafone prepay? My
    ADSL is working but my landline isn't. The ADSL dropped out a few times in
    the last couple days but seems fine now. However I got a call on my cell
    from someone who asked why my landline was engaged for the last couple days.
    On checking I have no dial tone and calling my landline from my cell results
    in an engaged signal.

    I tried calling 123 from my cell and got that f#@king annoying computerised
    "Please say in a few words what you're calling about" thing. Past experience
    with that tells me it's a 15 minute+ call, I can't afford that at cell

    I rang 0800 800 123 and was put through to faults fairly quickly.
    Did all that, including trying a basic corded phone. This isn't my first
    Telecom problem. :-(
    Thanks. They tested my line, told me it's showing as faulty and that I don't
    pay a wiring naintenance fee so if they find it's my interior wiring I'll
    have to pay a minimum fee of $85. I told him (again) that my ADSL is still
    able to pull data down at 3.8M/bit (the fastest it's ever gone here) so I
    highly doubt that it's my internal wiring.

    In the meantime all incoming calls are being diverted to me Vodafone cell
    (FOC) and, if it isn't fixed by 7pm I'm to ring 120 (from Vodafone? Maybe if
    I try 0800800120?) and quote the job number he texted me.
