I hope they're paying you for all these deal-posts. You deserve it.
All BT Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
The screen capture on this deal is clearly a text message chain. The format is all wrong. You just need to compare it to sagman76 screen shot to see the difference. It's a bit bogus if you ask me.
Cracking deal if ya can get it, what speeds tho
Much like you didn't apologise for accusing me of saying this deal was bogus?
You never answered what relevance your comment has to this thread.
Would also like to know (y)
Do I have to get my phone unlocked for this if it’s locked to EE?
On the website. You can log on and see the offers available to you. It's all live chat do anyway
did you call or live chat? cheers
Thanks, good news because EE is a better signal around my area
Still makes me chuckle all these years later. Loughboro.guy you are an absolute legend!
I tried it then decided to go for Alba instead
It arrived. It's rubbish. Sounds pants and won't connect to wifi....sending back.
Link does say onkyo....
Shout out for Amstrad, best tower systems ever!
The warranty is 12 months. They are expecting some more twin packs next week.
Ordered one of these - they arrived yesterday and installed in a matter of minutes. I think I need one or two more discs maybe as this set is for a small/medium house. We have an extension which has previously been signal-proof but this has definitely helped.
This deal is expired. Amazing advice though. Thanks.
Probably best to phone them up and find out.
My question was based on what the refurbed warranty is.
Welcome to the fam
I've tried tp link powerlines which did extent signal but not bandwidth, plus didn't cover dead spots around a 3 bedroom house, which am blaming the walls. The best thing about these and Google wifi is that you can manage your devices bandwidth and even create guess network for visitors. Plus the auto switching between 2.4ghz and 5ghz helps alot The bt ones are cheaper,offer better range and offers tri band
Thanks OP that’s a great price. I paid a lot more for a set and they are brilliant and have improved coverage and signal strength through my house. There was an issue with firmware causing pauses and signal dropsrecently but this appears to have been fixed and the service is back to brilliant.
Can anyone advise on if these vs power line adapters would be a better idea for a old farmhouse (iirc its listed if they helps with age) with really thick stone walls? Currently unsure of wiring / main loops etc. I was gonna go with powerline but not seen these before?
Has anyone connected these to their ring cameras/bell?
Yeah experienced IT folks know manual patching is the way forward for EVERYTHING! /s
I'm now seeing this at £449? Worth another post?
Is it worth getting this or holding out for another deal on the 6400 model? Thanks
https://www.ilgs.net/samsung-ue55mu6120k-55-4k-ultra-hd-smart-tv-wi-fi-black-led-tv-ue55mu6120kxxu.html £442.38, no idea how good the company are.
Far more reliable than a website anyone can post information on... Seeing as it lists the 6400 as a VA panel with 1000:1 contrast.... I think we can dismiss the information provided as questionable, at best.
Ha Ha at the "sources" (Veritable NOT!)
I will remove the post.
guys can click the link and try to buy lease because seem like BT has just removed the link they had 18 of them in stock 5 mins ago.
I don't know what the TV has...but it will work with your HDD but at USB 2 speeds.
Deal is not there
does this only have 2 usb 2 ports (no usb 3) as i have a usb 3 hard drive enclosure, will it still work on usb 2
The most backwards bank I've ever used. I've never phoned a company so much.
They have a 30 months at 0% balance transfer card, with a 0.55% fee. So it's not as good because of the small fee but the service I've got with virgin is so much better, and with the higher credit limit, its really relieved some finances for me! :D
Is this the one that has 29 or 30 months interest free on purchases and do the purchase have to be made within the initial (3month ?) period?
I got limit of £9k, that sorts out my finances. Thanks
The process to apply for one is ridiculous. i sent my documents off a week ago and I’ve received a letter again today asking for the documents again to be sent to them. copy of passport and council tax bill was what I sent in. the copy has to be signed on the same page not the back of the document. god knows why Sainsbury’s have this archaic process. I’ve had many credit cards in the past and never had to jump through them hoops.
Thanks for this, though I wished I was watching the Juventus game..... ;-)
Shame it wasn’t Real v Juve
Forgot about this deal, thanks for the credit, great post, HEAT 🔥
Sadly this model does not use the Trucall call blocking system, it has the vastly inferior and near-useless "type 1 call blocking - block up to 50 specific numbers". Otherwise, decent price for three handsets if you don't mind self-screening incoming calls.
yes it seems so.
Are these the same £73-83 @ Cleverboxes on Tesco site ? https://www.tesco.com/direct/bt-2200-trio-cordless-home-phone/715-9851.prd?source=others
Great. News. What was the issue ?
Finally worked on landline to landline! Still working on the landline to mobile, she said to herself. Thanks OP (highfive)
I've tried everything but it just don't work for me. It does connect, but there's no ring tone, nothing. I've even contacted Mike from Smart Caller, he tested it & said it worked, but no one answered. I checked with family & they've had no missed calls, & their phone didn't ring. I've just thought that perhaps that's the reason why they emigrated in the first place was to get away from me (shock)
Thanks again, just save me £5 on call to SA.
From the next BT "Disk," with a direct line of sight between the two.
Hi, how do these compare with the below? https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/netgear-rbk30-and-2-x-rbw30-orbi-whole-home-mesh-wi-fi-system-19999-at-amazon-2922437?page=1#comments-last
10ft away from what?
There’s an issue with current firmware
In my case they're a definite improvement on a Homehub 5
Well I ordered mine Last Tuesday got a security check call a few hours later - I missed call so called back after work and did security check at like 4.30 Got dispatched email at 11pm ish and next day when I got home it had arrived no major issues or dents I was surprised how quick I got it - packing could have done with a little more as you could hear boxes moving in the brown box but otherwise all good and delivered by TNT
A week later the order was delivered in a grey plastic bag with Royal Mail. Surprised the ipad box was dented which such careful packaging.... (annoyed) Last purchase from BT.
I was waiting to, it seems they have changed the offer to £30 off the pencil so £15 more than this deal
Was waiting til Friday for payday, and now the deal's gone. Well, that decides that then. Thanks @bt_shop. Saved me some money (lol)
Please feel free to elaborate with some step by step instructions (for us confused Linux people) and explain what i was doing wrong and how the points i raised are not limitations because they certainly felt like limitations to me, so much so i returned my 128gb 5th gen to Apple and got my money back. it makes no odds to me now but im sure the instructions you provide will be useful to others (excited)
What are you using? I currently have a d7000 Netgear but suffer terribly with Wi-Fi drop outs. I've heard a lot of people say Ubiquiti but don't know where to start
Ignore this - I'm being a numpty :p
Fair enough. Still hoping someone that someone knows that password !
As Maplin is in Administration i don't believe you can return items once bought. A member of staff explained there was no return policy when i bought a Hue kit a week or so ago
Well I went I ahead and bought 3 individual discs knowing that I would have to setup the 'master' disc that is connected to the router via ethernet. I connected my PC to the Wifi signal being emitted by the master disc, so that I could use the admin web application to setup it. But when I connect to the admin web application it is asking for the admin password. As it is a 'vanilla' disc it hasn't got one. The barcode on the back of it gives some arbitrary 'key' ( a number with some '+' symbols in it) which doesn't work as the password either. I've tried looking for what the factory reset admin password is on the BT forums and Google but cannot see it. Does anyone on here know what the default admin password is ? Worse case scenario is I return one or two of these and say buy a 2 pack, though I'll need to do that before Maplin properly close !
It doesn't work with all phones that support this feature though, at the moment it seems arbitrary. From reading this thread it seems like iphones and Galaxy s8/s9 variants all work but there are other phones where it doesn't. Both my Pixel XL2 and Nexus 6P which I purchased sim free supported wifi calling with EE but not with BT now.
It works with any phone that supports this feature, It's part of the phones settings, this isn't an app to install.
I never said it should be free (except perhaps pure voip or on-net calls) where they have no termination fees. You weren't comparing like for like - Netflix's offering never included physical infrastructure, EE/BT Mobile do.
Yes, but that doesn't seem relevant here. You're still routing the call through the EE infrastructure in order to connect it, only difference is you're connecting to the IMS through a broadband connection instead of RAN. Why on Earth would they allow this to be free?
Not the case, Nokia 5 from carphonewarehouse works fine, and all iphones afaik
Marked up as 35 in mine, but scanned with the app and it said £10.
Yes, good buy, also found the BT3540 Twin with Answer Machine in Motherwell Branch for £10. Some prices of the same sale items were actually dearer in Wishaw B&M
Thanks for that. Have added to title so anyone local can take advantage :)
It was the Pontefract store. I didn't actually buy them as I managed to get the BT 8600 Quad set for £30 a few weeks ago.
Bargain! You struck lucky there
Coming up on BT Showcase BT Showcase is closing. BT is from next season no longer obligated to provide Free-to-air Champions and Europa League coverage. Finals will be shown live online.
So it’s the OPs fault that BT bid more than sky? Or Uefas fault for selling to a higher bidder? It’s nothing like your ham analogy either - the library is a public service which we pay for through taxes anyway - ITV are a commercial company that no longer see the benefit of providing champions league football as the return on investment is not there for them - they never ran it as a public service. I can’t stand this culture of everyone being owed something and expecting things for free - I bet if the champions league was on BBC you’d be complaining that it is being paid for by every tax payer to provide this ‘benefit’ when not everyone wants to watch it. Oh and if you don’t think it’s free than I’m pretty sure you don’t understand the word as at the point of consumption there is no additional cost. I bet you write and complain when your rice isn’t white enough or that your coffee isn’t black enough
Good deal. If you have Plusnet you can also get all the BT sport channels via the BT sport website for £5 a month.
Oh dear someone got their knickers in a twist. you could also argue they were not free on ITV as you needed a TV licence to switch on your TV. OP have some heat all round well done!
This didn't work for me on my Freeview 115 channel, just kept getting Lampard handshake promo (mad) . Didn't have much luck on the website either. But when I tried a football stream, it worked...
Got this deal a mth ago direct through BT for some reason it said £11.49 per mth showed BT a screenshot they credited my account by £18 wasn't charged the £20 either
Read tech news BTSport will be available in Sky's package and the same vice versa it was announced ages ago
Good to know. (y) I haven't read the full article on it but what you said sounds more accurate - like how ESPN used to be sold on Sky years ago.
You are paying £9 to Wowcher purely to access the deal. The actual contract you'll end up paying is £12.99 for 12 months. There is a £20 additional "activation fee". You can get 3 months free HD, but it's an extra £6.50 per month from month 4 if you want to keep it.
Seems a strange time to do that. The start of the football season would make more sense
