Caller display free for virgin media customers

Found 29th Jul 2015
I got fed up with nuisance calls so called virgin media to opt in for caller display. When I asked what the cost would be I was told they added it to my account for free. Hopefully this means it is free for everyone.
Their website states it should be £2.25 a month.

Why has this been moved from freebies & the title been edited?

So instead of answering the phone and telling them to **** off you sit there looking at the display but letting the phone constantly ring? genius!

I was told mine was free and part of my telephone package, but mysteriously started being charged £2.25 for it. When I called up to rectify, they said it's always been £2.25 and never been free (despite my previous bills being proof!), so just keep an eye on your bill when it comes through.

Nope as just brought the BT8500 Advanced Call Blocker Twin handset posted on here (http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/bt8500-advanced-call-blocker-twin-handset-42-46-bt-shop-2254210) So hopefully between the two will finally give me some peace

When you get a spam call ( a human being) say your partner deals and that will pass the phone to them and go and have a shower / cook the tea etc,etc.
I had one who guaranteed to save me money on my mortgage.
I let prattle on for a while and then he said what I thought .
I said it sounded very good and if I had a mortgage I may have been interested.
He asked me why I had not told him and I said why didnt you F******* ask !

I've had a letter today telling me my payment is going up £3 a month but I'm getting bt sports channel added !!! don't want it but still have to pay robbing gits hardly a year goes by without them screwing you for more dosh

I've just got it for free

I got it free because I requested it last year. I told them I've been loyal blah blah.. (15years with them)

it ain't virgin as such anymore the virgin company only owns 5% of the company which allows the business to keep the name above the door.
Owned mainly by another company who keep sending me their postal shot every month even though I have contacted them to stop it.

Absolutely agree. Those BT phones have cut the number of spam calls that reach me to zero - such a simple concept and brilliant in practice.

Not really, I've yet to find a company that pays me £10 a month to own, but not wear their glasses, sunshine or otherwise.

So now they've started war-dialling mobiles too!

I got it but paid I still get nuisance calls have registered with nuisance calls aswell even put block call ppl who don't put in their phone number but they now use mobile and normal phones showing their number, so they can still bypass nuisance calls etc don't think they understand the swear words either does my hed in we getting more each day friend told me pick up phone and wen they get threw to me, don't ring them off just shove it in a draw be expensive call to u but don't know if it works as they still phone I pretend im nuisance call centre, Chinese laundry ball room holiday homes but even, these don't stop them wish someone would come up with a proper nuisance report

I'm an existing subscriber, called 0345 454 1111, went through the menu options related to phone fault. Spoke to an operator and explained "New handset needed call display to work and block nuisance calls. Previous handset did not have it. Need it now for new handset to function"... facility added free of charge and will be active within 24-hours. Happy I made the call. Heat added to OP
