Re: Price increase

Yes just seen this.

Clicked on the link to see the option on call plans and seems the 700 minutes anytime seems better BUT it states this is for any landline number or mobile but it is unclear whether this includes 0845/0870 numbers. I suspect not which would make a big difference.

Entered details to get a phone back from BT to see what happens.

Re: Price increase

Thanks for that link. Seems to indicate that the 0845/0870 numbers are included in the 700 minute plan.

When BT contact me I would hope that they confirm that this is definitely the case.

Not that I'm distrustful of BT of course particularly since I'm out of contract.

Re: Price increase

How did you reach the conclusion that 0870, 0845 numbers are charged for on the 700 minute Plan?

Re: Price increase

Here you go , quote from email from BT:-

"Your 700 minutes calling plan With this plan, you'll get 700 minutes a month for calls from your landline to UK landlines and UK mobiles .

Calls to service numbers starting with 084, 087, 09 and 118 come with an access charge plus a service charge set by the company you call."

Re: Price increase

Sorry to tell you but that is the old plan. The quote that I provided came from BT at 1642 today. 

If you really do not believe me then I give up.
