What's the significance of BT requesting a minimum number of phone calls should be made per month?

Go to solution

Hi All,

 

As someone with a BT Infinity/free weekend calls only package, I'm obliged to make at least two calls each month (if my memory serves me correctly). Could someone explain the significance of this to me, please? I ask because I'm going to be away from home for about 2 months in the summer so I won't be here to make any calls! Thanks for any input.

Hi there, you are right about 2 calls a month

 

If you have Privacy at home which includes caller display

     

1571 answering service

 

If you do not make the 2 calls a month. you will be charged.

 

£3 a month for caller display.

 

£1.02 a month for 1571

Hope this helps.

It's just one of the stipulations. I guess it's so you don't just get the cheap package/line rental and use it only for broadband or something like that, they actually want you to use the land line too - calls generate money, and BT are a business at the end of the day.

Those calls can be from your free weekend allowance as well.

I guess it's tough luck, pay the extra few quid or get someone to make a few calls when the come round to water the plants 😉

Easy fix here.

 

Get yourself a BT chargecard [which is free BTW]. Then you can make calls from any number which will debit on your BT home a/c even yough you are not physically there.

 

All my family have one. You can use any phone, but the call is debited to your home BT account.

That's interesting AllanQ, it must be 20+ years ago I heard of the chargecard, I didn't think they still existed.

So if say you are on unlimited anytime plan and use the chargecard for a call it would come out of your free calls!!!
or not I suspect.

This is in reply to Message No. 3 by Webby - No, that assumption is not correct. I only ever make landline calls at the weekend as they are 'free'. I never make any calls outside that period restriction on my landline and all my BT bills ever since I joined last May have been £18 per month which is the flat rate I pay for the broadband/free weekend calls package.
