Re: BT Privacy with Caller Display


[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
In reply to a post by RobertoS:
I also have (legacy) E & W included FOC.
I doubt that will be a stopper for LRS, as it is legacy and you are not 'in-contract' for it. My problem preventing me from getting LRS is that my special deal Calling Plan is within a 12m contract.

However BT seem to mix up the diff 12m contracts. There could be 1 for the line rental which the recent BT Privacy + free Caller ID has imposed. There could also be a 12m contract on the Calling Plan. as I have. BT appear to be leaking that contract into the 12m LRS contract, when they would seem to be independant of each other.

You should try applying for LRS. By the time you get to 'Confirm' it should tell you whether or not you are eligible.

Bear in mind that with LRS, you go on to monthly paperless billing with whole bill monthly DDs.

Isn't LRS an annual payment?

Yes, but you still have to pay for any 'out-of-plan' calls and your Calling Plan, which in your case is £0. I was just drawing that condition to your attention.

Interestingly, as I'm billed quarterly, additions such as Call diversion which I had for a short time still came quarterly. I'm already on paperless billing, for the discount (we used to get?).

No, you can't elect! It is a condition of LRS to only have paperless whole-bill monthly billing.

That's what I'm trying to warn you. LRS forces you to paperless monthly billing from quarterly billing on any medium.

Just noticed that TPS continues after leaving BT Retail line rental. I've been with Zen for several months and just attempted to register for TPS http://www.tpsonline.org.uk/tps/index.html and discovered that my phone number was still registered. Don't get many unsolicited sales or marketing calls ("unavailable" number on caller display) but I thought I might be able to eliminate them completely...

I think BT Privacy essentially is a way of signing to the TPS (plus the extra bits). So, by having BT Privacy you would indeed already be on TPS anyway.
