I got an email from BT today with "the instructions we promised to send about how to return your equipment" and details on how to return my Smart Hub by 2 Jan 2022.
I haven't cancelled my contract and I don't want to. I haven't asked to return the Hub. Any ideas why I've received this and how I can stop it?
(It's not a scam email – my BT account also shows that I'm due to return the Hub.)
I had the same thing - you'll probably find a new smart hub appear on your doorstep in a week or so.
I think it might be to do with the digital voice migration (even though I already had a SH2).
The only difference I could find was the new SH2 didn't have a sticker over the phone port.
Hi @thiskey and welcome to our community.
I'm sorry for any confusion with this. It sounds like you're going to be migrated over from copper to fibre which would trigger a new hub to be sent as part of the order. @ch is correct. You'll probably receive the new hub in the next few days and you need to send the old one back.
Thanks @DavidM . I've since received another email about me receiving a new hub, so yes – I guess that must be it. But I already have fibre to the premises, so I'm confused about why I need a new hub?
Thanks @DavidM . We don't use a landline telephone, so – no. But if we did have one, I believe it would plug in to the copper line. So the change of hub is to enable calls to be taken via the fibre connection, rather than the copper line?
I guess on the off-chance we want a landline in the future, we just need to roll with the change of hub now to enable it?
