King Nora! What a mess! That's the number I rang and had a strange conversation with someone who wanted a 16 character password so that he could access my BT account on his system! A hacking attempt? I hope SeanD reads this and feeds back - are BT using the wrong number on their letter?
I have not known BT to request a password when they need to access my account. I renewed my line rental saver the other day by telephone and was not asked for any password, yes account number but not password.
Update #1 I rang 0800 028 9370 yesterday again to chase up the password form they'd promised a while ago. He said he'll put one in the post, to arrive within five working days. But to be frank how in hades can I be sure it was BT? The lady I spoke to weeks ago who'd promised an email and also a form did nothing. She said that I had a cooling off period to change my mind about continuing with BT. I'll now PM a Moderator to find out to whom I can complain.
Update #2 If my wife decides we should move to eg Sky, will BT continue my account i.e. still collect my subscription/call charges until I cancel BT? Clearly it will take me some weeks to tell everyone that we've changed our phone number and email addresses.
What a load of nonsenses from BT - and they wonder why they're losing customers.
I'm sorry this still hasn't been resolved for you.
I am aware an error was made with some of our customer's July bill. Out of bundle call charges made up to 29th June have been discounted as free calls in error.
BT has send an email or letter to those affected explaining what has happened and any call charges missed in the July bill have been added onto the August bill.
I can understand your frustration and I'm sorry that your complaint hasn't been resolved. I'd like to help you with this. Please can you send me in your details using the "Contact The Mods" link found in my profile?
Thanks for taking the time to chat with me again this evening.
As discussed, the letter you received was a genuine letter from us explaining the problem we had in July. The number on the letter is also genuine.
I have also sorted out the password issue as discussed and everything else we were chatting about has been sorted too.
I'll go ahead and close this off today as agreed. Enjoy the rest of your evening
Hello Robbie. We spoke, you resolved the problem and my monthly subscription was frozen at £54.99.
A friend has just told me that only an hour or two later there was a BT advert on TV with a special offer, a package for £20-odd per month! It was for new customers only.
Will you please feed into your system that Sky appreciates its existing customers - they can take advantage of all special offers. Secondly I'm now trying hard to find that offer, or other like it. If I find one, I will switch to Sky and cancel BT a month later to give me time to set up new email addresses. I will do this believing I have a cooling-off period but if there isn't one I will do it anyway, and clock payments to BT, challinging BT to take action against me. Enough is enough.
