If the electric supply goes down, so does the phone. Currently, the phone goes down only if the line goes down; has never happened to me.
BT advises that "If your area has power cuts, you can buy a battery back-up unit (BBU)." Lucky me!
Similarly, they advise that you should ensure you have an alternative to the digital phone that they supply in the event of a loss of power; I assume they mean a mobile.
How do you charge a mobile phone without mains electricity except by connecting to a laptop and using its battery?
What happens if/when the laptop battery runs out?
As it mainly applies to those of us 'living in the country', does anyone care anyway?
Thinking of putting off the changeover until as near to 2025 as I can; this being the mandatory latest changeover year.
Am I overthinking this?
Am I just bored?
Do I need to get a life?
Is anyone else amused at Beth Rigby questioning the Prime Minister about keeping to Covid Rules, herself having been suspended from her job for three months for breaking the Rules earlier this year? The words 'pot and kettle' come to mind.
Speaking of which, time for Ringtons tea.
