For those with a monitored ADT Alarm


    I have a monitored ADT Alarm and it just came to my attention recently when I checked my phone bill that I get charged 12p extra every day for ADT's alarm receiving centre to carry out a compulsory testing. My phone bill shows a non-geographic 087 number which is amountign to roughly £3.60 extra a month.

    Anyway's I complained to ADT and they've now offered me a transfer to a 0800 number being used to dial in. ADT are saying they gonna charge me £1 a month for the dail in to go to the 0800 number. I'm gonna complain about this charge but thought i'd highlight this issue to anyone on HUK that may also benefit from transferring the dial in to an 0800 number. Rather have it for free but then again paying £1 a month is better than £3.60 a month

    Sorry for the long post but hope someone benefits
