right after my complaint heres my response from BT:- This is to confirm you that there is no outstanding amount on the account and You will not be charged anything for your email Account. If you have any issues related to your premium mail Account, please reply to this email and we will get back to you.

HARRIA01

update, BT have now started to bill me again including late payment charges of £7.50 also, but also providing a credit for previous months services but because the invoice is for a future period there seems to be a problem I will now raise this as a complaint and ask them to listen to the previous conversation when they said i could have it for free. either way im not paying them and i will tell them this, the worse that can happen is theyll end my service. I hate BT with a passion anyway

gazdoubleu

To get to the bottom of it as it appears you are the only person that's managed it. If I can't get someone in the BT executive office to offer it who else is there to shed any light on this? Do you have a contact? Nobody on the EE community web page seems to have managed it. I put a post on there myself too.

why would you speak to EE when its BT who are charging

Agreed with all, should have been free in the first place, a total cheek charging all those years just to see the number of who's calling you!

This post was to try to help those who were not awarw of the ofcom ruling. Also to overcome the fact that its not Automatic and how to get it if like ne you're a BT customer. Call me cynical but having to navigate the BT order process to get something that should be standard for all is made harder than perhaps it should be.

scrimpersdelight

What's unreasonable? You suggested that nobody else in the world charges for things in advance. I thought of some that do!

Well done to BT. Jolly good of them to stop charging for something they're no longer allowed to charge for, and then to put up the price for everyone to cover for it.

Quick update. BT refunded Sport and caller display for the five months since start of contract but billed me this month for Sport. Have cancelled Sport and have a letter of deadlock from them. It’s a generic letter which doesn’t address my complaint. mbudsman next.

azda81

In what way do they have to jump through hoops -- Openreach supply on behalf of all CP's and is heavily regulated to the point the pricing they can charge is dictated to them -- The media side cant be failing that bad, just got more rights to Prem football and extended their European coverage -- you sound a little bitter!

Just called BT on behalf of my mum as leaving them for Vodafone Currently paying around £30pm for u/l calls and line rental. Was offered same deal plus standard u/l BB for £23.99pm

ellie27

My mum is 70 and phoned to enquire about the basic plan. She currently £18.99 rental + £3.50 per month free evenings and weekend calls. And she is on phone constantly those times. They said the call charges on basic are really high and if she wanted to use phone way she currently does it would cost a fortune. The basic plan is really just for someone who rarely going to use it, more for the ability of family/friends being able to contact them.

Newbold

Not that simple, I'm afraid. You have to be getting one of these benefits to qualify, even if you're a pensioner: Income SupportIncome-based Jobseeker's AllowancePensions Credit (Guaranteed Credit)Employment and Support Allowance (Income related)Universal Credit (and are on zero earnings).

You don't say how much she is paying? Remember this is people on some kind of benefit not just old people. If your mum has a full pension she will not get this even if its just the state pension. My mum gets pension credit because she took years out for child rearing. So she never had the full national insurance allowance. Don't think TV pcakge is an option that would be considered a luxery

sd99

My mum currently has a regular line rental + 12GB ADSL BB + tv package. She's probably eligible for Basic - is the TV package an option with BT Basic + Broadband ?

Anon32

All providers jump after the contract ends its not sneaky either renew or get out as you would be free to leave. That article has nothing to do with BT Basic. My mum has been on it for two years. There is no contract. Please engage brain before talking about something complely irrelevant.

It’s not. The linked article isn’t about BT Basic. You can have basic (not fibre) broadband with it, bringimg the monthly price to £9.95

It's sad to see that the community here has voted this cold. Regardless of how you view BT at the end of the day there are people who have parents etc who have BT that won't realise they can get this. It really works btw. Usually people who have a care alarm will be made aware of this. However even without will be able to get this.

Its just openreach mate, not BT openreach.

It is BT open reach who carry out repairs and they are a separate company to BT. BT install software on their lines that deliberately slows you down. BT ( Bl##dy terrible) company ; if you do report a fault the only good thing is you will be able to ask what the weather is like in India!

I have heard through the grapevine (or Landline) that you have to re register to TPS every year. Perhaps this is how they start getting back through. Cheers Op for trying to help ;)

M0nk3h

TPS does work. We've been signed up for years (dating back to the likes of 2007 and so) and hardly get any calls since being signed up. It's also up to the resident to report any calls you get to TPS. "Once registration is complete telemarketers are legally bound not to call you." I don't think any service can really block or divert withheld or private numbers.

elliemaybelle

Just a shame TPS does not work, always getting cold callers even though I am signed up to TPS :(

BT basic is ok if you don't use the phone much, but if you go over, it could soon as up.

vtservices

funny my gran was getting bt basic and she wasnt on any state pension?

cromarty

Seems a decent deal but BT annoy me with all their contracts for parts of the service ending at different times. So you can end up with a 12 month broadband contract, 18 month Home Phone contract, 12 month free BT privacy, 12 month Line Rental saver, all ending at different times. Makes it difficult to switch, which I guess is the idea. Hopefully soon everything will be rolled into one contract. BTW BT Basic is only for those on benefits - not the elderly, unless they are on Pension Credit to qualify for which they need to be on quite a low income.

why didnt you apply for bt basic ??? line rental for the elderly and people on benefits £5.15 per month ( £15.45 a quarter )

"When paid monthly, line rental is £203.88 per year @ £16.99 per month" BT Line rental is £17.99 a month currently, and is going up soon.

bloodshoteyes

So in summary avoid at all costs - wish I stayed with sky rather than these bar stewards

AstalaVista

Not worth paying line rental upfront any more unless you want to stick with them for the whole contract. And why I think this? Almost all services providers now increase costs mid-way through the year. So when you sign up make sure you get discounts and when a price increase comes leave them. This will keep the monthly cost for services low. Worst case scenario, the prices will not rise and you have to finish the contract at full price!

thecynicalsaint

So if it's not a categoric answer its nonsense?! They show some in the group stages because they are contractually obliged to show a certain a number, but as soon as they hit their contractual quota they show no more. They get it out of the way as early as possible before things get really interesting.

RedmanDealer

But it's obvious that they aren't going to show the majority of the big ticket games on their free channel. You might get 1 or 2 if you are lucky but there doesn't seem to be any commitment by BT to show specific games on that channel, not like before when we had a guaranteed game every week on ITV. They will just show whatever they think suits them best, like the free watch days you get from Sky Sports every now and then. Have to say, the picture quality of that channel is terrible, actually worse than the non-HD BT Sport channels delivered over the internet but its better than nothing I suppose. As I've got BT TV, I'm getting all the BT Sport channels included so for me so I'm getting a good deal - all the CL games on Tues/Wed and all the Europa League games on Thursday. From a Liverpool perspective the BT coverage of the Europa League is pretty good, the picture quality is far better than ITV4/C5 and watching on mobile/chromecast is a decent option when you away from home. Better than paying £25 for Sky then extra for Sports. Yes a lot of the commentary leaves a lot to be desired (and Owen is boring) but tbh there are too many poor pundits on all of the channels right now and somehow the worst ones seem to pop up on every competing channel (like Ian Wright).

deleted434948

They've had English teams shown for free before, therefore it's not a categoric answer.

thecynicalsaint

OK, so what is the real reason then? Seems pretty obvious to me that English fans are going to be less likely to sign up to the paid service if they broadcast the English games for free, but if you have a better explanation let me know.

Snakeyes646

I have BT sport and i love it,but would much rather have it on ITV or even BBC, maybe BBC if they are keeping the tv license and to make it worth the cost. BT Sport has its downsides though,Owen is terrible at commentary, also a scottish bloke on ESPN FC is always putting teams down in the premier league.
