I’m having problems making/receiving calls.

Is your phone set to ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode?

Android: To turn this setting off on an Android device swipe down from the top of the screen and tap your current option: Alarms only, Priority only, or Total silence. Press the volume down button and tap Turn off now.

iPhone: To turn this setting off on an iOS device swipe up from the bottom of the screen and tap the crescent moon shaped icon.

Your surroundings can really affect the quality of reception, especially if you’re a long way from a mobile mast. Buildings close by, cars or electrical equipment can block a signal – we’d suggest moving from where you are if it’s possible. If you’re near lots of trees, inside a large building or in a valley the signal may not be as reliable – we’d suggest finding an open space.

If you’re still having issues making or receiving calls please answer these questions, submit this form and our team will get in touch with you to fix the issue.

I'm having problems connecting to the network

There are some changes and steps that you can take to try and fix this issue before contacting our team.

1. Have you reset the device? Turn your device off, leave for 30 seconds and turn it on again. Or refer to your user guide to find out how to do a 'soft reset'.

2. Have you manually searched for the JT network? Please go to Settings > Carrier > Deselect Automatic if it’s already set > Select JT > Try loading a page or making a phone call.

3. Have you tried your SIM card in another device?

If you’ve tried all of these steps and you still can’t connect to the JT network, please fill out this form to help one of the team fix this as quickly as possible.

Our team may get in touch with you because the nature of the issue needs you to be in the property to carry out some tests on the device which will help the team get to the root of the issue.

How do I activate my JT SIM?

There are a couple of things to check before you get in touch with us to activate your new SIM card.

  • Make sure the SIM fits your handset before we activate it
  • Check your handset isn’t locked to another network provider. The good news is that any handset that you buy from JT won’t be locked so you can use any SIM card in it.

If you get your SIM card from our JT shop one of the team will activate it in store for you unless you ask for it to be kept inactivated.
If you do receive a blank SIM (in the post or as part of a gift for example) you can visit the store where one of the team will be happy to activate it for you, or you can contact us so we can activate it remotely.

Remember, if you’d like a blank SIM activating you’ll need to have this information to hand:

  • The JT Account number that the SIM card is associated with.
  • Valid photo ID if you’re visiting the store.
How do I test my mobile data speed?

Download the Ookla speed test App from the iOS App Store or the Speedtest.net App by Ookla for Android handsets.
To help make sure the speed test displays accurate results, please read each of the below points:

  • Ensure your phone is on the JT network and you have 4G/LTE enabled in your settings.
  • Open the Speedtest app and check that the server is set to JT / Jersey Telecom Limited.
  • Press the GO button, then wait for the speedtest to complete.
My phone has been stolen/lost.

Don’t worry, we’ll do all we can to have you back up and running as quickly as possible.

Please contact us to inform us that your phone has been stolen. We’ll suspend your SIM card to make sure that no one can use it to make calls, send texts or access data.

You can then decide whether you’d like a replacement SIM card (your number will stay the same) or would like to wait until your phone is found/returned to you.

We recommend letting the police know that your mobile has been lost/stolen. This will give you a reference number for any insurance claim.

How can I find my PUK number?

Your PUK number is shown on the SIM card holder so we’d advise keeping it in a safe place in case you need it. If you can’t find your SIM card holder, you can use our automated phone system 24/7. Call 01534 882882 and follow the options.

Top Mobile Tips



New to JT

Welcome to the JT family!

These four steps will help to get you started now that you have new services. If you’ve got any other queries about using or managing your service, you can get help here.

Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4
  • You can view your bills online and on your JT My Account app
  • Your first bill may be different from what you’d expect

You only start paying for your service from the date that it becomes active. You’re paying in advance for your fixed-price service charges such as mobile device payment, mobile, broadband and landline. If you have any one-off charges, such as usage outside the terms of your plan, these will be shown on your next bill.

For example, if your service was connected on 7th March, and your bill date is 28th March, you will receive a bill during the first week of April. It will have service charges (and any usage charges) for 7th March – 28th March and service charges in advance for 28th March – 27th April. This means your first bill might be higher than you would expect. You can select which date you’d prefer your Direct Debit payment to be taken, and you can change this anytime by contacting us.


Bill Date Direct Debit Date
7th 28th of the same month
10th 5th of the following month
15th 9th of the following month
21st 11th of the following month

Charges that may appear on your bill

Usage charges for any extras such as data used, texts sent or calls you’ve made outside of what’s included in your plan. We add these charges to your bill after you’ve used them. For example, if your bill is dated 7th March, your bill will include any usage charges from 8th February – 7th March. If you don’t pay by direct debit and no payment is made by your payment due date, you will see the balance brought forward to your next bill. If you pay by direct debit and don’t have enough money in your account, cancel the payment, or it is not cleared by your bank, you will see the balance brought forward to your next bill. If any other charges are incurred they’ll be shown on your next bill. We won’t charge you, restrict your services or instruct a debt collection agency without trying to contact you first.

Understanding your current JT bill

Your bill will give you a breakdown of your services, such as:
  • Your monthly service charges. For example, mobile, broadband and landline.
  • Your mobile device payments.
  • Any credit, such as adjustments for offers or pro-rated service charges.
If your bill amount isn’t what you were expecting, look at your bill to check:
  • If any of your contracted charges, such as mobile device payments have finished.
  • If you have added or changed any plans or services.
  • If there are any roaming charges.
  • If there are any usage charges (you can contact us to add a summary to your bill which will show local calls, international calls, calls to mobiles, texts and data etc).
  • If you’re still not sure about the charges, please contact us. (link to Contact Us page)
Once you understand our billing process, you can move onto step 3 and sign into your JT My Account app to manage your account. Click here for more details about our apps.

Download the JT My Account app.


All you’ll need is a smart device, and your online account details. If you’ve forgotten your password, you can reset it by selecting the forgotten password link.


With the JT My Account app you can manage your services, keep an eye on your mobile, broadband and landline usage, set-up usage alerts, add bolt-ons and view your bills.

Should I take my router with me?

Yes, please take the router from your old property to your new property. Just connect it to the ONT at your new property as your home network details will remain the same.

At your old property:

• Don’t touch or unplug anything from the Genexis box
• Unplug the ethernet cable from the grey WAN port on the router and leave it in your property. Please do not take this cable with you.
• Unplug the power supply
• Unplug any remaining cables from the router and take them with you (they’re likely to be yours)
• Take your Tilgin router with you

At your new property:

• Plug in the ethernet cable which should come from the Genexis ONT (Port 1) into your router's grey WAN Port
• Plug in the power supply cable to your router and turn it on

All of your network and log-in credentials will be the same at your new property because you’ve taken your router with you.

How do I configure my router?
The good news is that you don’t have to because we do it for you! When we install your router at your home, we’ll configure your router with your SSID and wireless key so you can connect your devices and get online straight away.  
 
I’m collecting my router from the JT shop, do I need to configure my router?
If you’re collecting or buying your router from our shop, our team will configure your router for you. This means that you can turn it on and connect your devices to your home network straight away.
 
I’m moving house, do I need to reconfigure my router?
If you’re moving house, please take your router with you to your new home. This will mean you don't need any details changing and you can connect to your home Wi-Fi network in your new home as soon as your router is plugged back in.
 
My Wi-Fi isn't working
There are a couple of things that we recommend trying before you contact us:  
TIP: Don’t touch the ‘Wi-Fi’ button on your router when you’re trying to fix the issue. If you’ve already pressed the button before reading this, go back and press it again to get back to where you were!
1. Find your ONT/Genexis box 



2. Make sure the cables are connected properly
Power lead is coming out of the top right and leading into an electrical mains socket.



The Ethernet cable is connected into port number 1 – if it’s plugged into any of the other ports the service won’t work.



The other end of the Ethernet cable goes into the grey WAN port on the back of the Tilgin router. If it’s plugged into any of the yellow ports it won’t work.



3. Make sure the power lead coming out of the Tilgin goes into a mains electricity socket and it’s turned on.

4. Has the Tilgin or the ONT got any flashing lights?

  •  Yes - Unplug the black power lead from the top right of your ONT and leave it unplugged for 30 seconds. Once 30 seconds has passed, plug the lead back in and wait 2 minutes before seeing if there are lights flashing.
  • No – Follow the power lead back to the socket and make sure it’s plugged in and switched on.

If the socket is switched on and the Tilgin still doesn’t light up, check the black/white power button on the back of the router is pressed in.  
  • If you’ve done all of these checks and your ONT/Tilgin isn’t giving a Wi-Fi signal you need to be sure the socket isn’t broken. You can do this by plugging in a hoover/hairdryer/lamp. If the socket isn’t working it’s your responsibility to get an electrician/check the circuit breaker.
5. Do you know your Wi-Fi network password?

  •  Yes - Go into your ‘Wi-Fi’ Settings on your device and select ‘Forget Network’. Reselect your ‘Wi-Fi’ Settings and if your home network appears as available this means that your Wi-Fi is working. Select your home network and re-enter your password. Open the internet or an application that requires data access and if the page loads correctly your Wi-Fi is working.
  • No – Please contact our faults team so that we can run some further tests and do all we can to help you.   

    I have a data point that splits the Ethernet cable into different rooms, should I follow these steps too?

    Yes, the same principal applies; the ethernet cable comes out of the ONT, goes into the data point and there’ll be another data point in your house which the cable will come out of which will then go into the grey WAN port on the Tilgin.
 
How do I connect my devices to Wi-Fi?
These steps run through the general steps that anyone needs to take to get connected to the internet via Wi-Fi.

Step 1:
Get yourself in a property or public space that has a wireless router which is transmitting a Wi-Fi signal.

Step 2:
Make sure that the device you're going to use is a.) Capable of connecting to the internet and b.) Capable of connecting to Wi-Fi.

Step 3:
Find out the name of the Wi-Fi network that the router in your location is transmitting. Each Wi-Fi network has its own unique name. Sometimes this can be a sequence of random numbers and letters — but usually people will personalise the name of a Wi-Fi network to help you identify its owners. E.g. "The Smith Family" or "Bob’s Cafe".

Step 4:  Once you know the name of the Wi-Fi network, use your chosen device to find it. This will vary between devices depending on whether you're using a Windows or Mac computer, or a mobile device. However, the process for connecting to Wi-Fi is broadly similar, following something along the lines of: Settings > Wi-Fi > turn Wi-Fi on > click on the name of your Wi-Fi network > The majority of Wi-Fi networks are private, with access given via a password. If your chosen Wi-Fi network is password protected, at this point it will ask you enter that password. Make sure you have the password at hand, and enter it > Join


What is the wireless network name (SSID) and wireless key (password) for my router?
The wireless key is another name for the password that you use to get into your wireless network. Always keep this password secure and only share with those who you are happy to be connected to your wireless network. An SSID (Service Set Identifier) is the name which is broadcast by your wireless (WLAN) router. It’s the name that appears for your device to connect to when you’re searching for wireless networks. When we install your router we’ll create an SSID and password for you so that you can connect your devices and access data straight away. If you’re moving house, remember to take your fibre router with you; that way, all your network and passwords will stay the same in your new property.
 
How do I find my Wi-Fi password?
Follow these 7 steps to get your wireless password from your Tilgin router:
1. Connect a device directly into the Ethernet ports on the back of the Tilgin.
2. Open a web browser and enter http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar.
3. When the Tilgin configuration page loads enter these login credentials in the top-right boxes:
Username: admin
Password: admin


4. Click on the ‘WIRELESS’ tab across the top.

5. Select the name of your network. (In the example the network is called ‘Cheesecake’)

6. On the left hand navigation pane select ‘Security’

7. Then whatever is listed in the ‘Passphrase’ field will be your password – in the example it’s ‘password’.

 
How can I improve my Wi-Fi speed?
If your connection feels slow and is secure how many people are using the connection? Bandwidth may be reduced due to the amount of devices accessing the router. For example games consoles, such as PlayStations, could be using a large amount of bandwidth if someone is gaming online. The nearer your router is to where you use it, the better your experience will be.  

1) Router keeping tips:
  • Move your router away from the window (signal being lost to the outside)
  • Keep your router on show (don't trap signal in the cupboard)
  • Keep your router on a shelf or table
  • Keep it away from the TV and water (fish tank etc)
2) Device keeping tips:
  • Keep your devices up to date by doing any updates
  • Laptops and computers are fitted with bigger antennas, so they'll be able to receive Wi-Fi in more places around your home
  • Restart the devices connected to your home network regularly to prevent 'tiredness'
3) Who are you sharing your network with?   Your network can become congested when lots of devices connect to it. Parental Controls with Haandle enable you to control the connectivity of devices to your home network.

If you're not using a device, it's always good to turn it off and give it a rest, and this will help free up the Wi-Fi for the devices you are using too.
 
How do I test my broadband speed?
We deliver the broadband plan speed to your router so please use an Ethernet cable to join your router and the device which you're testing the speed on. Always make sure you're using the JT hosted server to run the test as this will give you the most accurate results.

Report a fault
If you're having problems with your home broadband service, there are some simple checks you can do to try to find out what's wrong. If your broadband connection is not provided by JT, please contact your service provider for help. Always check the power cable is connected to the router and that it's plugged in properly. Please answer these questions, submit the form and our team will do all they can to fix the issue as quickly as possible. Our team may get in touch with you because the nature of the issue needs you to be in the property to carry out some tests on the equipment which will help the team get to the root of the issue.

Will I be charged?

If you’re having difficulties connecting to the internet on your JT broadband connection, then it could be because of a problem with the network. If the fault is on the JT network we’ll send out an engineer to fix it, and you won’t be charged. Some faults may be caused by a problem with the internal wiring or equipment at the property. JT is responsible for the line up to and including the NTP (Network Terminating Point) - the point at which our network cable enters your home or premises. If an engineer visits and the source of the fault is proved to be your internal wiring or equipment, you will be charged for the visit.

How do I disconnect my broadband service?
We’re sorry you’re thinking of leaving JT. Please contact us to speak to the team about this.

How much will it cost me to disconnect my broadband service?

If you’re still in contract with us, bear in mind you’ll have to pay the remaining charges of contract to cancel early. Most of our contracts are 24 months, but we do have some that are 12. Also, if you’re looking to change to another provider, there might be connection charges for setting up your new service.

What is broadband speed and how does it work?
The transfer of data from point A to point B is what we call ’Broadband'. It's used every day by billions of people across the world. Whether you use it on your computers, laptop, tablet, smart phone, watch, headset or home heating and security system, broadband keeps everyone connected. What does Megabits per second mean?  Broadband speed is measured in Megabits per second, usually written as Mb or Mbps (as in 24Mb or 24Mbps). It’s the rate at which data is transferred either from (download) or to (upload) a website. What is a Gigabyte?  A gigabyte is a measure of volume of digital data. There are 1,024 Megabytes in a Gigabyte. Your monthly broadband plan may have a certain number of 'Megabytes' or ‘Gigabytes’ as your monthly allowance (1million MBs, 200GB for example). Every time you access mobile data you’re transferring digital information from point A to point B by either sending information out, or receiving information in. This information is transmitted in digital chunks, or ‘bytes’ so depending on the size of the information you’re sending (uploading a photo or downloading an email etc) a certain number of bytes will be used. The simple table below shows how the volume of data used is measured.
1,024 Bytes 1 Kilobyte
1,024 Kilobytes 1 Megabyte
1,024 Megabytes 1 Gigabyte
1,024 Gigabytes 1 Terabyte
For example, an email may be 2.1Mb in ‘size’. Sending or receiving this will use 2.1 Megabits of your 100GB allowance.

Scam & Fraud Awareness - Nuisance/Scam Calls
There are a number of different types of nuisance/scam calls out there. Whilst JT work hard to minimise the number of unwanted calls received by our customers it is inevitable that some of them may get through. Below we have described the most common types of unwanted calls and what you can do to minimise any risk to yourself and others. Phone Scams Fraud over the phone, also known as Vishing, is when a fraudster calls claiming they are from a bank or other trusted organisation in an attempt to gather personal information about you (such as bank account details, passwords etc) which they can then use to steal money/access to services from you. They may have already gathered some basic information about you in order to sound authentic and have the ability to change the telephone number that appears on your phone to something genuine. If you receive a call that claims to be from a bank or other trusted organisation, please remember the following:
  • A genuine bank or organisation will never contact you to ask for your PIN or full password.
  • Only give out personal or financial details for those services you have consented to, that you trust and are expecting to be contacted by.
  • If in doubt, call the bank or organisation back on a trusted number before giving out any details.
  • Don’t be rushed into making a decision.
  • Fraudsters often try to pressure you into transferring money or agreeing to hand over personal information.
  • A trusted organisation wont mind waiting.
  • You can report these calls to us on 01534 882882 and we will investigate and endeavour to block where appropriate.
  • If you have fallen victim to a scam of this nature, please contact the States of Jersey Police on 01534 612612 or online via www.jersey.police.uk

 

Scam & Fraud Awareness - Marketing ‘Cold’ Calling
Sales and marketing organisations may try to contact you to out of the blue to push all manner of products and services. If you are not looking to buy anything they are selling these calls can be considered a nuisance.The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) runs two free registration schemes designed to reduce the amount of unwanted phone (or fax) calls received from sales and marketing organisations. By registering your telephone number with them, the DMA can ensure that your number is no longer available to organisations, including charities and voluntary bodies, who might telephone you with offers and information you do not want to receive.

Scam & Fraud Awareness - Malicious, indecent or offensive calls
Making a malicious, indecent or offensive call is a criminal offence. Although not a common occurrence, if you are a victim, please contact the States of Jersey Police on 01534 612612 in the first instance. In addition, if you contact us on 01534 882882 and we will do all we can to help.

 

Scam & Fraud Awareness - Scam Texts
Otherwise known as Smishing (SMS Phishing) these work the same way as scam calls where fraudsters purporting to be from trusted organisations are attempting to gain personal information from you in order to unlawfully access funds/services.If you receive an SMS of this nature please report to us and/or the States of Jersey Police.

 

Scam & Fraud Awareness - Stolen Phones
If you lose your phone or it is stolen and it lands in the wrong hands the implications to you may be more than just losing your mobile device. If access is gained to your phone you could be opening yourself up to the following risks:
  • The personal information stored on the device could be used for further criminal acts (e.g. identity theft, subscriber fraud etc.)
  • Even if the device is locked the SIM could be removed and used to make calls that will end up on your next bill.
If your phone is stolen on-island or while you’re away on holiday, please contact us as soon as possible on 01534 882882 to ensure that your service is suspended and no further charges are incurred. Many people think disabling the device is sufficient, but this does not stop fraudsters from using your SIM card in another phone and racking up huge bills at your expense. In order to protect your data ensure that there is a secure PIN on both your device and SIM and make sure that you keep your device software up to date.

 

Scam & Fraud Awareness - Email Scams
In a similar way to calls and texts, criminals also ‘phish’ by contacting you via email. Always be aware that unsolicited emails that look to be from a known and trusted organisation can easily be faked. Unless the email is expected, never click on any links embedded in an email before verifying the authenticity of the email. They might promise your huge rewards, lottery wins, lost inheritances and so on and often they will include requests for upfront payments or private information such as bank details. Use your common sense and if in doubt delete the email. If it looks too good to be true - it probably is. 7 ways to spot an email you’ve been sent is a scam:
  • The sender’s address doesn’t match the website address of the organisation it says it’s from. Roll your mouse pointer over the sender’s name to reveal its true address.
  • The email doesn’t use your proper name – using something like “Dear customer” instead.There’s a sense of urgency, asking you to act immediately.
  • There’s a prominent website link which may seem like the proper address, but with one character different.
  • There’s a request for personal information.
  • There are spelling and grammatical errors.
  • The entire text of the email is within an image rather than the usual text format and the image contains an embedded hyperlink to a bogus site. Again roll your mouse pointer over the link to reveal its true destination.

If you're having problems with your home phone service there are some simple checks you can do to try to find out what's wrong. Always check the power cable is connected to the landline base unit and that it's plugged in properly. If you're using a cordless phone make sure it's charged up; there's usually a battery indicator displayed on the handset screen. Once you're happy that the handset has charge and all the units are plugged in properly, please answer these questions and if necessary carry out the simple checks.
 
  • Is there a dial tone?
  • Can you receive calls?Have you paid your bills?
  • Have you tested the phone with all other telephone equipment unplugged?
  • Have you tested the socket with another phone?
  • Have you tested the phone in another socket?
If you’re still having issues making or receiving calls please answer these questions, please scroll down to Report a fault tab and fill out the form and our team will do all they can to fix the issue as quickly as possible. Our team may get in touch with you because the nature of the issue needs you to be in the property to carry out some tests on the equipment which will help the team get to the root of the issue.

If you rely on your landline and have a corded telephone our engineers can fit a battery back-up unit which will enable the line to work should a power-cut happen. Please Contact Us to arrange your engineer visit. If you have Community Alarm unit, we will fit a battery back-up free of charge when we install the fibre line to your home.

Can I have a community alarm?
What is a Community Alarm or Horizon unit?
A Community Alarm, or Horizon unit, are devices which can be activated to call the emergency services. They’re installed in the homes of those who are frail, elderly people who live alone in the community and for people with disabilities. More information can be found here.

How much will it cost?
If a client is on income support benefit there is no charge. Otherwise the charges are based on the rental of £29.70 per quarter, plus GST, which is payable to JT Global.

Application for an alarm The method of applying for an alarm is initially through the person's GP or Family Nursing and Home Care. The application is then passed to the Community Alarm Coordinator, who will then arrange for an alarm to be supplied and fitted and will explain the operation of the alarm to the person and where necessary, to any family and friends who are key-holders.

The Alarm The alarm system consists of a base unit with an integral telephone built in, together with a pendant which the person wears round their neck and depresses a red button to request assistance. Wrist type pendants are also available.

JT cannot support landline customers with a Lifeline alarm unit with Sure. They are therefore not eligible for JT landline.
