hi,
i got my bt bill, im on option 1 and so the line rental should be 11quid ish. but my quarterly bill only came to £20.76 - how does that work?

also because i hardly ever use the phone is it right that if i were to switch to the light user scheme i wouldn't be able to call 0845/0870 numbers, someone told me that.

any help appreciated.

thanks

    I am not sure why your line rental was that low as that £11 is monthly :confused:

    You cannot use broadband if you change to the light user scheme.

    Did you have any credits on your bill or is it your first bill. Check the bill ID, is it I001 or Q001 and what dates do your service charges cover you for.

    You will be able to ring 0845/0870 numbers, although you will lose out on the 5.5p/hour discount and the call charges will be standard rates.
    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.
