Yes mate, i want to put a cordless phone into the free broadband calls you get via the orange b,band. BUT only a old type phone will work in it. via the adaptor you get. not the house land line, thats ok. its just the FREE calls you can get by ther LIVE BOX. ?? any help. as iv tried the home cordless one in it, and it only rang, but nothing else ?? orange are no help, as they say use a old phone... thanks, martyn

sassie , think ill give it another try. as you may know ? the live box lets you make free calls via the broad band. but you have to put your phone into the live box + the adaptor you get. only one. then you can phone free, + still if you want to , use the land line aswell. etc. But like i say, when i tried a cordless phone, it rang but you could,nt pick up + speak etc.. nothing ? But Orange do say it only works via a old type phone. Which it does. thanks anyway.. martyn
