When I signed up for FTTP I chose the option for broadband only, I did not want a landline.
When it was installed I was given a landline number.
When I phoned the help line, I was told that I have to have a landline, it's on PAYG so there are no costs.
Separate from that issue, I am in the complaints process for an issue with my Cloud storage.
On three occasions the complaints team have tried to contact me on my landline number. I have told them there is no phone plugged in and to use my BT mobile number. Three times I have asked for my landline to be deleted and my mobile as primary contact number.
Who can I talk to to find out how to go broadband only and ditch the unused landline.
Any help, suggestions welcome
Why do you need to ditch it, it doesn't cost anything unless you make any calls. It is no cheaper to have broadband without telephony capability.
Because BT say they tried to contact me ( dealing with a complaint) but couldn't get hold of me.
If I didn't have the landline they would have to use my mobile number
Thanks for your reply iniltous. I take you point about stopping the service and starting again.
So here I the main point. When I realised that I had been given a landline number I rang BT Helpline.
I explained that I would not be using it and so they made my BT Mobile number my primary contact number.
A week later (6th April) I found out that my access to BT Cloud was not working. After many phone calls the
BT Cloud issue was still not resolved so I escalated it to a complaint on 26th April.
So now I am dealing with the BT Complaints department.
Spoke to BT Complaints on 4th May they said they had been trying to contact me.
Between then and now I have spoken with them on several occasions. However, there has been another two occasions when they have been trying to contact me and said they couldn't.
As my complaint is still ongoing (still no BT Cloud) I have found out that I can monitor its progress on My BT Webb page.
There in black and white I shows that on three occasions they (BT Complaints) have tried to contact me on the landline number.
When I check my account details it does show my Mobile number as primary contact.
Point 1. BT Cloud issue still ongoing since 6th April
Point 2. Why do BT Coplaints department still try to contact me (sometimes) on my landline number.
