US Ring tone on inbound calls to VM landline

Hi, anyone else noticed this. When anyone dials my VM landline they get a US style ringtone. It never used to be that, it used to be the UK ringtone?

It goes "brrrrrrrr.....brrrrrrrr" rather than "bring-bring....bring-bring". I've heard it when calling some VM numbers recently. But I don't know why it does it.

Re: US Ring tone on inbound calls to VM landline

Could it be to do with the digital voice service?

It definitely is, but it doesn't happen for everybody. Maybe it's a particular hub model that does it

I've just been told my (DV) phone now rings in a US style for callers.

I can see a new patriotic campaign here:- 'Save the Great British Ringtone'.
One for Nigel Farage.

Re: US Ring tone on inbound calls to VM landline

The weird(er) thing is that ours went back to a UK ringtone last week. But now it’s a US tone again.

I wonder why they can’t fix it as I’ve seen a few complaints about it on VM’s own site with people saying they can’t get it resolved and some replies from Virgin that show its teams clearly have no idea how to resolve it.

Moral of the story is if you've got a landline hang onto it. VM (and others) have had to halt the VOIP 'downgrades' due to safety/reliability concerns.
