I am with Talktalk currently but can change providers as its run by them and not BT

Is it not possible to ring Virgin Media (want to go with them) and get them to change it for me to there own phone line service with signing up to a year with BT.

Virgin use thier own network and totally independent of the BT network. You can get VM to install a new line for you and usually port your existing number into thier network. Remember VM broadband doesn't come through a phone line, cable broadband is superior to ADSL (that comes over your phoneline). But you also limit yourself to VM as they don't currentley wholesale thier services.

You'll have to look on the VM site about inclusive calls, iirc VM's call charges are quite high as opposed to BT, Talk Talk etc. Why not just get cable broadband and look into a VOIP service?

With Talktalk I currently get calls to Cyprus completely free at all times do you know if virgin would be willing to add it free to the 10MB Package to get a new customer.

looking at the VM website it's £11.99 for your line rental a minimum of £9 for 200 mins worth of calls to mobiles, local numbers and international.
