    Question has been fixed/was fixed

    Hi,

    Which one is correct?

    1. My landline has been fixed since yesterday.

    2. My landline was fixed yesterday.

    I'm always confused with tenses.

    Re: has been fixed/was fixed

    Use the present perfect to show the connection to something going on right now.

    I don't understand why you say you couldn't reach me. My phone has been fixed since yesterday.

    As a simple statement of when it was fixed, then say "it was fixed yesterday."
