As soon I can I am downgrading my bb package and getting my mobile elsewhere, hoping for a decent bb deal as I have been with bt for over 10 years!
Been there did that, got a much better rate for broadband and anytime calls without the BBA phone. Moved to Asda mobile as it is cheaper than anywhere else for what we wanted on PAYG. Seems even BT have admitted they don't want this as the HH3 doesn't support their VOIP phones.
Just out of interest do other mobile providers offer a multiple mobile contract for upto five users for domestic use? Where you can share the minutes texts and data allowances between the handsets?
Just been on to BT about signing up to one of their broadband packages, the one with the unlimited landline calls, and to delete the hub phone any time package that I am on at the mo (Very unreliable, no wonder they are binning it) on option 3 at the mo, I was informed that if I wanted to change or enter into any new BB contracts I would have to "drop the mobile part" any one else been told this
That's odd as I've just renewed by BBA contract for 18 months (had to extend the BB contract as well)
I know that the new hub doesnt support BBT, BT just told me to stick with the hub2 if I use the service which is fine for me
Hi bazza, just as a matter of interest, did they offer you a better deal on renewing your current contract, on the broadband for example, the point i am making is, is the BT BB anywhere, being phased out, and not being offered to potential new customers, ie the mobile side
wow that was weird like talking to myself
I contacted the support desk to enquire about my contract and to see if there were any new handsets. I was informed that I'd been in contract for enough time to allow a new handset but this would mean re contracting for another 18 months so I cant see it being phased out for that reason
Although they may not have the latest handsets (I ended up with a Desire) Anywhere still works for me in that the package I am on and the you can have additional handset, I have had no major problems with the service, and when I have had troubles they've either been fixed, or I was notified that there was an issue that would be fixed shortly etc, so I decided to take them up on the offer. No real change to the mobile contract, but I got a few shillings off the BB side and a lower price for the Vision.
I've been with BT mobile (hovis theme playing in background) since Fusion and continued through to BBA, it looks as though the package is still up for grabs for new starters as you can still navigate to the BT web page for the service and it still advertises the htc phones and BB packages with the new shiny hub3
BBA doesnt use BBT since they moved off the 620/710 handsets, so it makes no difference that the hub3 doesnt have BBT service built on
I did ask about that as I (or the missus I should say) really use the voip, and they simply said stick to the hub 2, which again is fine for me another piece of BT kit that never really had major problems with, and I can use the sip droid software to get BBT on mobile and my android tablet winner!!
Hi Baz, I know what you mean about talking to your self, I do it all the time, lol.. thanks for all that info, contrract not due for renewal till july, so I will get back in touch with them then, see what sort of deal they can do for me, I have never had any probs, and am very happy with the service I have had, I like the BT Vision service, and mobile tarriff I am on is perfect for my needs, oh and the hovis ad, that brings back memories, , I remember when I was a lad, lol, think I willkeep my hh2, for she who must be obeyed, she hammers voip, when it works, cheers mate
Has anyone found out what phone is availlbe for recontracting? and what sort of deals can be had? there must a lot of us with only a few weeks left on our contract.
