I think phone line cs is ok, mil got through but they do take ages to answer. It is free phone though.

Iirc it's the bb cs which is rubbish.

Lewis, have you looked at sky? £25 a month for unlimited bb and a phone line but the first 6 months is free bb. You can get cashback too from quidco or topcashback.

Check moneysavingexpert - IMO it's the best resource for deals. One for primus ends this Thursday BUT apparently their CS is crap ATM.

It was a year ago and no longer available sad it was 02 broadband as existing customer plus a primus line via home phone choices. I can't remember how the deal worked now ( can't see on quidco mobile site) but was terribly excited about it then smile it did take a fair amount of research though.

I've just got a 12 mobile contract for £6.90 a month and then take off cashback of £44.44... Making it half price ( vat prob not inc in the £6.90 figure)

bluecarrot, which provider was that deal available for? We're moving soon, so need to look at all these things. A negative number sounds like a very good deal!

If you are not going to use Sky box office or any if the extra services you don't actually need to be connected. We cancelled our Bt line years ago but still have Sky. Just don't let Sky know as you are supposed to be connected but there's no way they can find out.

Afaik you still need to pay line rental, you can pay upfront though and save money there.

If my sky TV and broadband 'require' a bt line, is it just ok if there is a bt line that leads into the property? Do I also have to pay BT line rental? I pay line rental to BT, yet have not made a call for 10 years on it. (Don't even have a landline handset). Should I cancel my bt line service?

Bit late but you can also get cashback through topcashback. My phone and broadband worked out at MINUS £2.14 a month.

It was on mse, like I said they don't advertise it.

If you BT line rental upfront it's non refundable, so if you decide to go to someone else then you lose that money.

Which is why I'm not leaving until June.

Never knew that Fluffy...will give SKY a ring smile

Primus is £6.99 a month, if you sign up via money saving expert. I've just changed mil to primus. She did ask I don't just do these things.

You don't get any free calls but with free minutes on your mobile I don't actually need them.

Sky will also let you pay a year upfront but they don't exactly advertise it. You have to ring them to organise it.

Ive dumped BT and moved to SKY...much cheaper.

Have you tried looking at other providers? YourCalls are cheaper than BT (£9.50/month line rental, including free evening and weekend calls, and substantially reduced calls to a mobile provider of your choice), but the line is still classed as a BT line, so you can still get any services you currently have that require a BT line.

For years I have been paying £14/£15 odd a month and just found out that if you pay a whole year up front they only charge you £10.50/month (approx - forgotten exact figure but £10 something) - wish I had known that earlier............ so paying up front will save me £50/year approx...
