If it helps all the wires were in place when we moved in except for the actual phone line. For this we got BT to come and dig up the road. As far as I recall they were never in the house and only connected the line up at the grey box.
Must have been his apprentice...

Mostly differnet I think. The one with the solid blue and solid white wires is FO442.
Like Alwall says, that ain't the master.

There should be a master before it with 2 incoming wires going to terminals marked A and B and 3 outgoing wires blue, white and orange, connected to 2,5 and 3. - as Mr Saffron mentioned earlier.


There are no other sockets. There are five sockets in the house and the grey box outside. There are no boxes between the grey wire entering the bulding and disappearing into the garage ceiling. Photos of all five sockets are now online and noe appear to be the master socket.

I don't understand...........

Did you ever have a problem with phones not ringing?

No, although we only ever had the one plugged into a phone socket as it is a dect system.

Did you say earlier there's a box which is a bit inaccessible, or have we got *all* the boxes on flickr?

You know that socket with the missing wire, if you remove the second of the pair - the blue? - do all the sockets stop working?

Maybe wait till your krone tool comes....
