My neighbour has a line fault, no incoming and no outgoing. Their frustration is only just ahead of mine.
Despite repeated calls there seems to be no progress at all. In fact the fault tracking is a bit of a joke, the latest message shows that the problem should be resolved on 16th July!!!!
I've read that you can set up a free call diversion to a mobile number when your line is faulty -------- do callers incur any additional cost? If they set up this diversion would my neighbours have any extra costs on their mobile?
Is there anyway of getting some action on the fault, an intermittent fault developed during the first week of June and turned into a permanent fault beginning of July.
Help Please !!

If your line is diverted because of a fault BT will pick up the diverted part of the calls ONLY if your calls are with them, If you use another supplier for the calls, they will bill you
You can set up the divert yourself on the www.bt.com/faults website

I pay for 24/7 Anytime calls and I also pay for International freedom so because I now have a fault on my line ( no broadband either) and BT are diverting my calls to my mobile (02 PAYG) do I still pay for outgoing calls? and if so why? the fault isn't mine...and it costs a small fortune on a mobile even to callers within the UK.
I believe that I can not ask for a rebate (on my bill) because BT are diverting calls for you but that doesn't help when you have to MAKE calls which would normally be made on my (free) landline. It cost me £££'s to report the fault because you have to go through all the number pressing and on holds before you get to speak to anyone and ask them to call you back.
We ( BT Customers) pay enough charges for a Service that never seems to be working fully or consistantly so why should 'we' pay for more.

You will find the answer on this page.
If you have a smartphone, then BT SmartTalk can be used to make calls using your existing call plan.

Thank you.....read the Customer Service one....don't have a smartphone though.
The links you gave won't open....needs to be on BT... I am using my neighbours at the moment (*Sky) so 'when' I am up and running again I will have a look. ( * am presuming that that is the reason)
