Been on the phone to VM about changing my outdated package that i had since NTL dug the roads up.
FINALLY i got something FREE. Also small monthly charge of just £2 will cover the 0845 and 0870 numbers. I usually get billed about £20 a month for these calls so this is going to save me loads of money!!
I have slimmed my monthly package and i asked for a FREE wireless router and i got it.
I called 150 from my landline and and went to option 2, then 2 again. I told them i was thinking of leaving. This isnt not exclusively a retention deal. It is available to new customers and when you change your package. If at first you dont suceed then try try and try again. This seems to be VM's new motto. As is usual, they may say they know nothing about it so just call back and speak to a new staff. if you get fiesty with them then they close ranks lol
Apparently the free caller display and the charge for the 08 numbers has been available for a long while but they have not informed people. I have been paying for Caller Display when infact it is FREE! I might even try to get a refund.
Hope this helps people, good luck :)
Please let us know how you get on with this one.
From what i cAn find out, they are rolling out the service until March so you will still be paying for it but by calling them up they can take the charge off your bill immediately.
Update to mention that others have managed to get free caller display and have posted it here so it is definately a live one.
