>>The UK system is different for "ringing". A proper UK handset with BT
cord* will never ring on Irish or German RJ11 socket, unless there is a
UK cable adaptor to RJ45 with a capacitor in it to simulate a UK master
socket. So likely not just a regulator issue.
(*Even or especially if the BT cord replaced with RJ11 <--> RJ11)
Israel uses (or did) the BT plug, but wired as per RJ11 (two middle
wires) so UK phones do plug into Israeli sockets but do nothing. BT uses
the two pins either side of centre pair for speech pair.
