Hi, I would like to Divert(when busy) calls received on my LandLine to my BBtalk number. I have Option 3, as well as BT Mobile etc but I have a feeling this will cost me as part of the LandLine features pack. If this is a cost feature then I assume I will also have to pay for the call costs to BBtalk. Has anyone tried this or is there another method. I suppose I could give friends and family my BBtalk number and do it the other way round for free. Any comments please.
It is possible, I have it set up this way: Call Diversion (Calling Features costs me £2.59 per month) set up to forward calls when my landline phone is engaged to BBT number.
I have the Unlimited Anytime Package on my landline and calls to my BBT number therefore don't cost me anything more.
It works well. When other members are on the phone, I can still receive calls on the BBT phone. We can sometimes manage to have 3 incoming phonecalls at the same time, one on the landline, one on the hub phone and one on a standard handset connected to the hub.
The only difficulty is when I am in the house on my own, and on the phone and another incoming call starts ringing the phone next to me.
Thanks for the quick update. It's good to hear that it works, I think I will give it a try. At the moment I have Caller waiting which costs £2.59 as my first Feature pack. I suppose if I have call Divert then I don't need the caller waiting as they would ring through!
By the way I'm interested that you have the Unlimited anytime on your landline, does this mean that you press 5 when you make a call as you also have Talk enabled. I use Talk for all outgoing calls and the landline for incoming calls, I suppose I'm lazy in not giving out my BBT number to the family and Friends.
