If you have BT anytime weekend (free calls at weekend), you can add free evening calls too at no extra charge if you commit to 12 month contract.

Just to reitterate, you MUST COMMIT TO A NEW CONTRACT PERIOD TO GET THIS!!!

Why anyone would want to prolong their stay with BT is beyond me... I can't wait to be away with the b*st*rds.

what I don't understand is I had anytime for YEARS and ma in law still has it, it is called anytime as it is free evening and weekend calls..............is someone pulling your ringading??

There are 3 categories - weekend / weekend and evening / all the time.

They are ALL CALLED ANYTIME.

If you are on weekend, you can get weekend and evening for the same price = £0

Your plan costs money = £4.95 per month. I use 18185 for times of the day when BT charge. Reckon I pay less than you.

im on my second year of this, i think its a good deal but not new.

Just joined BT's anytime at £4.99 today. Normally i use 1899. Got a busy year ahead so know i will be using the phone quite often, after 12months going back to 1899 .........:whistling:

Another 12 months contract to get it free. I already have a hard time making sure I make 2-3 chargeable calls per month so I don't get charged extra by BT.

we took a BT line 18 months ago and they gave us free weekend and evening calls, new one year contract good deal ........NOT

cancel BT line in december and got a bill for £62.00 termination - the contract is a auto renew 12 month contract so you are always tied in unless you cancel the free calls option.

Lucky for me they didnt call or send a letter to confirm this and they cant find a copy, but it took over 20 phone calls and 3 weeks to sort out, even after that got a bill last week showing I still owe it but been told they will sort it.

To clarify jonnye... are you saying that in month 11 I need to cancel (give 30 days notice) on my "anytime" calls package with them or else they will put me in a new 12 month contract...

Wonder how that will work with me as I am in an 18 month contract which meant I got free installation.... I just cancel in month 17 not month 11 I assume?

Will have to dig out the paperwork.

With all the new entrants in the home phone market I wouldn't want to tie in with BT who have been renowned for not being the cheapest, even with a free 12 month package 'upgrade'. I'm still using 18185 at 5p per call for UK calls, and I can make 100 a month for a fiver, which is quite a lot of calling. Doing it this way, when we're on holiday we pay nothing, as no calls are made, unlike a locked-in contract when you pay regardless.

I'm not on the very cheapest deal, as pointed out in the money saving expert site, which had been primus I think, but I am free to choose my supplier at a moment's notice. From that site 'Cheapest basic line rental & calls (£2.79 cheaper than BT) Primus, £9.15/month, free evening & weekend calls to landlines' http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/phones/home-phone-calls The article there is well worth reading, as it covers options such as with and without broadband etc.

Just to put my two happeth in::::
If BT were so sure that their service is one of the best and one of the cheapest , then why do they want you top sign in for 12 months??????
If they were that sure of themselves people wouldnt leave.
SAYS IT ALL
I refused this and will move to o2 in march when their phone line becomes available.

Voted cold!, BT the masters of Confusion,They create so much smoke so you don't see all the facts. After years of trying to wade through their different options I have given up an gone with a more up front company. I would not go back to BT now, even in the very unlikely event they started to be upfront and gave clear pricing. also they own Plusnet so beware. BT Been There Bad Terms Better Transfer

Just a warning.

I signed up to this deal when it fist came out and in the paperwork it stated that when the 12 months was up they would write to let me know, so I could cancel the automatic 12 month renewal if I wanted to.

However, they never notified me that he 12 months were up so they got me locked into another 12 months, so make sure you know when the 12 months actually ends if you are planning on cancelling.

You should read the small print before you sign up maybe? If it was auto renew and you were in another 12 months then you will get charged for termination.

I'm quite happy on the auto renew 12 months, they let me know in plenty of time to cancel or change. I make good use of the free calls in the evening and weekends. I also get email to a can view my bills online, which i find quite useful. Also, BT own the telephone network so being with them will probably help if you have a problem, i.e other comapnies just go through them to sort problems. Also, they now have 0845 and 0870 calls included, which i dont think all other comapnies have.

I understand what i signed up for and the terms.

at the end of the day someone will have a complaint about a company you may be happy with.

Yes - that's exactly what I do during the daytime. I just don't pay anything in the evening or at weekends as the BT plan is free to join. So going on holiday is irrelevant.
