Hi, does anyone know if it is possible to move broadband and phone to a new provider yet continue to keep the caller redirect service with BT? Caller redirect was activated a few years back when moving to a new town, so would like to keep that active.
Solved! Go to Solution.
As caller redirect is implemented on the BT core phone network and is mapped to your BT service, then moving provider would result in that link being ceased, and the service would no longer work.
I have no idea, but I cannot see how it could work, as the number you are directing from, would cease as soon as you cancelled the re-direct with BT.
Why is the number so important, as I would assume that most people you know, must already be aware of your new phone number, and the ongoing charge for the service must be costing you money?
It’s an elderly family member that I’m asking on behalf of. I’ve suggested just cancelling it but that doesn’t seem to be an option at all 😂
Thank you for your help.
You wouldn't be able to keep it active, caller redirect is a chargeable service, if the BT account closed then so would then billing account the redirect was active on.
