I recently changed from Sky Broadband and Phone line to Vodafone. I need to change the number over to Vodafone and they told me to contact BT to release the number. Is that possible? Previous to Sky, i was with BT so assume the number changed over fine back then.
There are similar posts on forum if you use search
as the number belongs to BT then on you switch it has returned yo the owner - BT
only way now to get number is to switch to bt. Reading previous posts will explain how
The only way to get number back is to become a BT customer. I am sure the previous posts covered that and the follow up confirmed that after joining BT. The forum mods were able to help get number back
you should have been advised by Vodafone. That number would not be transferred
The number belonged to BT, Retail so Sky could not give it to Vodaphone, so it reverts back to BT Retail.
To get the number back, you would have to become a BT Retail customer, or get an additional phone line installed by BT Retail, as it may be cheaper than cancelling your Vodaphone contract. It depends on how much you need your old number back.
There is no other way.
