Default How to change back to BT line rental from TalkTalk?

Hello Moneysavers!

Regrettably, before I discovered MSE, I changed our phone line rental from BT to TalkTalk..... (we were already on their Talk240 plan). We are now 1 per month worse off with Caller Display included, and we can't use any alternative call suppliers like Primus.

Now I want to change back just the line rental to BT - but can't find any way to do it online. Can anyone help? USwitch can't do it.....

thanks!

TT

0800 800 150 - just tell BT you want to switch back to them, no need to mention your intentions re CPS or 1899 etc.
Much of the advice on residential telephony I have given over the past 9 years or so is now gradually being overtaken by changes in the retail market. Hence, I have now deleted links to my previous 'pearls of wisdom'. I sincerely hope they helped save some of you money.
I will continue to help with Orchid programming whenever possible.

Quickest way to sign up with BT is call 0808 100 5152. and have your TT telephone account number ready when you call

I believe though that you can't just transfer line rental back to BT and in fact both calls and linerental will be moved back to BT. You would then have to have your calls only moved to the teleco of your choice.

if you call 0800 800 829, the number is for the BT Customer Options Team, who deal with orders to bring you back from a different telco.

Should save you some queuing and transferring.
If saved 2710 and only spent the interest (Based on a return of 5%), you would have enough money to pay your TV Licence every year. Saving you 7452.50 over a period of 55 years, based on you buying a license from the age of 20 until your 75 at a cost of 135.50.

That's OK - BUT we also have a TalkTalk mobile (for the free calls to home and friends!) which is linked to the main TT account. If we transfer, does the account get closed and the TT Mobile along with it?

thanks

Just changed our telephone service back to BT from TalkTalk - no response to 5 phone calls and at least 6 emails. No response at all. It's not been a week.

In the same time, I have had 3 email from BT, very polite and helpful, they are on with the change. Hopefully more efficiently that TalkTalk!

Are you sure their not just moving your calls from Tele2 to TT. They cant move your line rental to them unless you have agreed to do this.
