    "It's generally related to the setup of the number. New FLR number allocated to carrier for a customer and all the number routing databases updated by all the carriers so calling the number from the carriers network results in a failed call as it doesn't know where to send the call and it just dies.

    This also tends to happen occasionally with LNP's - generally the situation is where the losing carriers number database isn't updated and it's trying to terminate the call inside it's network when it should be routing the number across to say TPG/Soul.

For calls to your 1300 or 1800 number that are not being received from blocked/anonymous landline or mobile callers, we suggest you contact TPG to assist you to remove the blocking call feature from your TPG system.

For all else we suggest you immediately contact TPG to log a fault advising your TPG landline or TPG VoIP can't connect to a 1300 or 1800 number but when you ring the 1300 or 1800 number from your mobile it works.

Finally, we suggest you login to your Customer Tool Box and add an over flow to your 1300 or 1800 number to a non-TPG landlind or mobile phone. Set the overflow to, say, 30 seconds.
