I have used Sky for phone calls for a couple of years or more now. I have the full sky package for TV and as you say pay BT £10.50 and Sky then charges me 3p a min or whatever (same as BT...they are clever to keep track of the competition! ) However, the best bit is the evening and weekend calls which are free local and national as you said. You can use the usual 1471, 1571 thingies...However when before broadband I had a problem with Rogue diallers on my PC, it was difficult to barr them without also having to stop overseas calls too, as this came as a combination (don't know why??) Doesn't bother me as I don't make overseas calls. No problems with Sky otherwise.

Can you use the override numbers like 18185 and 18866 with you SKY phone package or does SKY bar them?

People migrating from another line provider (e.g. Talk Talk) have to go back to BT (as their line provider) first if they're daft enough to be considering going to another LLU (or WLR) provider. A 12 month contract for line rental might well be insisted upon at that point.

All is probably OK - it's just that the switch has been completed (although a couple of days does sound remarkably quick).
Primus service not available until 22 August, but the 1640 code is still unavailable. Have spoken to BT who said that they were instructed to cancel the "other company" (ie first:telecom 1640) on the 8 August (the same day that Primus advised BT that they would be the CPS). Have spoken to first:telecom, who said they find that with some companies, Primus, Bulldog, Post Office, they find that people who used the 1640 prefix find it doesn't work after going over to Primus etc. Are Primus allowed to block some prefixes or allowed to cancel an existing account you may have with someone else? Strange that the 18185 prefix works, if the 1640 doesn't, or could that simply be because the 18185 account was set up after the Primus account? Also BT say I had a previous CPS, which I didn't, I've only ever been with BT and used the 1640 prefix for all but non geographic calls.
