Re: BT Privacy with Caller Display

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.


So it now seems that I have caller display and TPS (same as BT "Privacy"?) for 90p per month with Zen line rental...

"BT Privacy
Gives you more control over your incoming calls by registering you for the Telephone Preference Service to help stop unwanted sales calls. You can also get BT Privacy with Caller Display free for 12 months online with a new 12 month line rental contract (usually £1.75 a month). Standard price version available by calling us on 0800 800 150. BT Privacy with Caller Display will remain free for BT Basic customers."


BT Retail seem to be charging £1.75 per month for caller display then if one doesn't take a 12 month contract nor be a basic customer?

TPS is free to anyone - it isn't related to BT at all. And yes, the BT charge is effectively just for caller display as far as I know (plus the "convenience" of BT signing up to the TPS on your behalf to save you entering your details).

That's interesting - I never bothered to check it out before, always thought TPS was a BT Retail thing smile

However BT Retail are charging nearly 100% more for caller display than Zen!

A similar, but years old example, of BT's dubious advertising style as recently seen in their TV ads for Infinity. Superfast broadband only from BT.

Very unSporting wink.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 58.7/14.6Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

It seems that many BT Basic customers also got the impression that only BT broadband was available on their line...I certainly did when I attempted to examine the details of my aunt's BT Basic account...
