I recently rang Sky to upgrade my TV package to Sky Sports. Whilst I was speaking to them about this they offered me Sky Talk frre for 6 months, and then after 6 months it would be £5 per month. They informed me that this would mean all my calls to 01,02 and 03 numbers would be free at all times provided I did not go over an hour on the call. They also said that I could ring free to over 20 countries witht the same 1 hour proviso, and there would also be 25% of the cost of mobile calls. I decided to take the offer to test it as Sky said that there was no 12 month contract and I could cancel at any time.

I have this morning received a letter from BT advising me that a new provider had advised them that my calls would be paid to another provider, unless I changed my mind.

Could I ask if anyone else has this deal with Sky and are they happy with it.

many thanks

    If you're leaving your line rental with BT (i.e. just using Sky as your CPS calls provider) be aware that using the 1280 code to 'hop back onto BT' for calls for which BT is cheaper (e.g. 0845 and 0870 calls following Sky's dramatic hike in their prices for such calls last month) will not work.

    There's a dedicated forum discussing Sky Talk Unlimited - see HERE.
    Time has moved on (much quicker than it used to - or so it seems at my age) and my previous advice on residential telephony has been or 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.
