Dont pay £1.75 for caller display. I recently changed over to o2 and was very disgruntled at having to pay for caller display. I came across an o2 webpage were it offers business landlines free caller display. I phoned custome srvice and told them it was an absolute disgrace. They told me that the £1.75 charge could not be removed, however, they would put a monthly credit of £1.75 onto my account.

Whats stopping me jumping ship from BT to o2 are the extra charges plus the much higher call charges outside my allowance. The o2 offer has a lot of "hidden" charges. You need to study thr price lists and T&C to find out about those extra hidden costs.

+1.... Agreed, they are also an unknown quantity in the UK as a telephone service supplier.

I cannot list them all here. You need to find out yourself by downloading their price list and T&C. Come on, don't be such a baby! Caller setup fees are the same but virtually every charge beyond the free allowance is more expensive than BT (including the caller display).

They might give it to you cheaper as they do when you ask about the caller display (which is only a credit, which can be withdrawn at any time), but do you really want to negotiate every single charge with o2?

For me this is all too messy. I'll stay with o2 for my BB, but my line stays with BT.

Listing just one or two of the 'biggies' would have been great.

If you are on an all inclusive then what more charges are there? Calls to mobiles, abroad, 0844 etc. numbers presumably?

The main question to have answered is 'does O2 allow you to use call override'? If it does then for most it won't be as much as an issue as you can use someone like call18185 for calls outside your allowance.

The main reason for me moving from BT would be purely customer service. I have been lied to on several occasions.... and one of those lies (changes in contract mid term) cost me £50.

They do allow over-ride (third party provider) but for an extremely high price. (e.g. BT 0.5p per minute and o2 23p per minute). This is just one example. But if ppl dont want to find out, I'd say just go for it. You can always change to someone else after 12 months.

BTW, I'm no friend of BT but as their service goes, I had a fault in my line and BT came out within 2 hrs and replaced the cable from the road to my house. With o2, you would have to go through them for faults and I wander how long they would take to fix your line.

Thanks for that. I was thinking about going to O2 but because of the delay in them getting it up and ruinning I ended up getting out of my BT 12 month evening and BT weekend contract and going on the bog standard weekend tariff with no tie in (just 2 weeks no penalty notice). I then signed up to Primus Saver Option 2 so I get free evening (6pm to 8am) calls. Other calls I go through 18185. Looks like it is still the sensible choice for people who don't want an all inclusive package. Every weekend or so I make a couple of inclusive landline calls via BT (1280 prefix) to ensure I get free caller display.

You should get the same service from any service provider over the copper network.
o2 are very good for raising for faults on the ADSL side.

I just found out that the unlimited plans have hidden charges too. You dont get unlimited free 0845/0870 calls. These are restricted to 600 mins per month. Anything over that is chargeable. Likewise the unlimited international calls is no true. This is also capped to 600 mins per month and when you have used them all up you pay the standard price for international phonecalls (not even discounted). Think it worked out about 23p per minute. 600 mins is not very much. This works out at approx 2.5 hrs per week. Not so good when you have family living overseas. I phone family and quite often stay one phone for over an hour. I phone Canada for approximately 4 hrs per week minimum so this would cost me £20.70 per week????? on top of monthly charges. This works out at approximately £83 over the month?? I'm beginning to think that o2 are not as great as they make out. i should have just stuck with the o2 broadband.

I've just joined the Post Office Home Phone and going live next week so I can't speak for them at the moment but the price looks good. CLI is extra though - £1.75 I think.

Moved my Nana to post office from BT, some good points such as no charges for not paying via DD, free calls to mobiles on a weekend.
However again you have to pay for CLI/caller display.
I may just BT to price match o2's anytime offer.

Who the hell spends 600+ minutes on 0845/0870 per month anyway?
And the O2 unlimited package includes calls which are probably more than enough for most people so you're being pretty harsh just because it doesn't suit you.......

With my option one broadband from bt £20 a month (unlimited) i ts actually £22 but they refund me £2 every month, and my line rental and evenings and weekends its around £150 a quarter if i go with o2 its £17.50 a month as i have a mobile with them and thats anytime and unlimited broadband, my bill will half so its a no brainer for me...

Just waiting for some kind of Quidco to sweeten the deal and I'll sign up. Works out over £50 per year cheaper than BT for the same service. Fair enough I lose 1571 messaging unless I pay the 'bolt on' but just means it's time to start using the answering machine on my handsets. 24hour freephone technical help and the 600 mins of international calls on the anytime package includes USA mobiles so it has 2 thumbs up from me!
