If you have subscribed to BT’s BT
Answer 1571, Call Minder, or another

the
icon on the display.
BT Answer and Call Minder are invisible

Help
If you have any difficulty using your
Decor 310, look in this section first for
solutions to the most common problems.
No dialling tone
Make sure the telephone line cord is
plugged into the telephone socket at the
back of the unit and that the telephone
line cord is connected to your wall socket.
Check that no other extension is in use.

are off the hook.

phone extensions in your home or

NO NUMBER displayed
Your Decor 310 checks the content of
the Caller Display messages it receives.
If it detects a problem with a message,
it displays NO NUMBER rather than
risk leaving a message with a possible
mistake. This does not mean your
telephone is faulty.
If you continually receive NO NUMBER
messages, call:
Freefone 0800 800 150 for residential
customers.
Freefone 0800 800 152 for business
