Well I have had a Tesco phone for many years which has worked fine without a master socket it plugs into the broadband box

UK 'phones have a third wire for the ring circuit (or certainly always used to) and will therefore not ring if only a plug adaptor is used, if this can be even be sourced - the only surefire method is to source and install a UK telecom master socket - not an extension one - which has the wiring and circuitry to permit a UK phone to function correctly

Most reasonable size supermarkets sell a variety of phone adaptors including filters for broadband boxes

Many phones use a detachable lead with an RJ11 plug on one end and in the UK, a BT plug and in France the T Shaped plug or another RJ11.  If your phone is one of these then you are in luck.  Just go to a large supermarket and buy a new lead.

Here is a pic of an RJ11 https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=RJ11+image&biw=1600&bih=730&tbm=isch&imgil=iwuiaMdfEFn_ZM%3A%3BbuvBWARR9YZfZM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.tomshardware.com%252Freviews%252Fpc-interfaces-101%252C1177-10.html&source=iu&pf=m&fir=iwuiaMdfEFn_ZM%3A%2CbuvBWARR9YZfZM%2C_&usg=__BomsHRRCGN9XFa_fwvn03RuHVlk=&ved=0CDoQyjc&ei=xc5EVf2LJ6qf7gaL3YD4CA#imgrc=iwuiaMdfEFn_ZM%3A;buvBWARR9YZfZM;http%3A%2F%2Fimg.tomshardware.com%2Fus%2F2005%2F11%2F23%2Fpc_interfaces_101%2Frj11.jpg;http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tomshardware.com%2Freviews%2Fpc-interfaces-101%2C1177-10.html;425;297
