I have recently taken delivery of a 101, but I cant get it to work. The phone cable that was supplied didn’t fit as it was RJ11 on both ends. I need RJ11 on the phone end and a BT style plug on the other. I bought a replacement cable from Maplins (HOW expensive are they??) yesterday, but plugging in resulted in no success. The handset/base are registered to each other, but there is no response from the phone at all.
I have even tried the cable from my working landline, but it still doesn’t work.
I read in the manual that cables other than the one supplied may not work. Could that be the case here? If so, how do I get around it if the supplied cable is the wrong one?
I have no idea if the Skype side of the phone works, as I am new to it and have no Skype contacts.
Any help that you can offer will be appreciated a great deal, so thank you very much in advance for your time.
