Default Telephone Line Fault?

I still get an occasional problem either with a continuous tone ( not the
dial tone, the higher pitched loss-of-connection tone )

for no reason I'll get a normal dial tone when I
plug in for the umpteenth time.

BT it is then.......

Yup, that sounds like a real line fault not just a identification of
dial tone problem.

(one other cause of unexpected loss of connection is call waiting - you
can turn this off by dialing #43# IIRC)
