I went throught the moving house options online with my BT login and it all appeared to go through ok. I still however don't have broadband (after moving in on Monday) and today BT told me tonight it was because the previous owner hasn't cancelled his phone line yet so they can't take it over.
He tells me he has called them to cancel it but BT say I need to get him to do it again. I don't understand if I'm now living in the house why I can't just take over the phone line and get things going.
As you can imagine it's getting rather painful as everytime I ring BT I'm on holf for at least half an hour and get passed from pillar to post, told to call back later etc etc. The last time I spoke to them I said just cancel my order and I'll go somewhere else and they couldn't even do that. Just put me through to the cancellation department who didn't answer the phone.
This post is my last hope, please help!
