BT Smart Talk - the new BTBBA

It's good to see this new service.

How about going that extra inch now and enabling incoming calls to the mobile via the landline number.

There may need to be restrictions such as only working to the line owner's mobile or perhaps part of the configuration to allow it to ring any mobile registered with a tick in an incoming call box?

BTBBA could do it because my wife used to use a hub phone to call itself on its geographic number and it rang my mobile or other people could ring it and wherever we were, home or away, we could answer it.

Wouldn't that be the same as Call Diversion? It's already available - at a price.

Re: BT Smart Talk - the new BTBBA

I think Neil is referring to the VOIP calling facility that some used oin the old HTC 620/710 handsets, which would connect the device via wi-fi to a caller.

 

Unlike ST, the 620's were able to receive calls if they were directed to the BBTalk number, althoughI seem to recall [pardon the pun] that software was not without issues from time to time.

 

In fact, why not bring back BT Fusion? Smiley Wink

Re: BT Smart Talk - the new BTBBA

The key thing is that btbba did it included in the fiver a month mobile contract. We know it can be done and Bt have effectively told us It's not expensive as they aren't charging extra for outgoing VoIP

Re: BT Smart Talk - the new BTBBA

Having said all the above..... my landline has gone faulty but broadband still working so sounds like 1 leg dis or HR. People just get ring tone and I can't trip the ringing. If this was like the BTBBA with calls going to home and mobile then I could simply answer from my mobile.

Re: BT Smart Talk - the new BTBBA

What does BTBBA stand for? I can't find anywhere at all what this stands for.

 

Edit: Does it stand for BT Broadband Anywhere?
