What happens when you have a power cut and your router does not work?  :facepalm:

The same as what happens when you have a power cut and you have DECT phones.  That's why I've always had a corded landline connected as well.  I'm really not looking forward to this change.

As far as I can tell, the offering will be an ATA/VOIP adapter that plugs in to your router. The tricky bit is that the connection to the phone will be an RJ11 rather than a phone jack. So, if the phone has a fixed cable on the handset you will then need an adapter to fit in the RJ11 port and take the normal phone connector. This is called 'progress' and we must all embrace it  :facepalm:
What no-one seems to be addressing is that if this goes wrong do they seriously expect an older or non-IT literate person to log in to their VOIP box and do stuff to it? Madness.

 These are both my major worries, surely BT will provide something for the elder generation on the none tech savy to use, or am I living in cuckoo land :eyebrow:.

Me again more questions, when the phone system changes , will the ordinary plug in the wall skt still work , Its the only phone my wife can use because of her hearing loss. She has a hearing aid with a loop system , but it seems all phones have a screen which interferes with her aid ,our plug in the wall phone does not and is perfect with the hearing coil in her aid . Any suggestions most welcome.

Yes, it's quite slick, but I do feel that the Customer Login should be a bit more prominent.
A fair point. They are rather tucked away at the bottom.

Anyone taken a shufti at IDNet's website recently? It has undergone something of a transformation. Fancy, schmancy.  :)

Just make sure the wire with the black line goes to the same polarity terminal at the amp and the speaker. Which one doesn't matter as long as you're consistent.
