      I think they contact you once your exchange is available, but i'm guessing that may be a while for me.

      Just registered and about 1 minute later got a phone call from them wanting to talk to me about getting Sky Talk which could save me 5.

      Coincidence... i think not

      Sorry but Sky aren't that connected (even being a communications company!) ... the dialler system for outbound sales calls are loaded the night before - some companies have them work in real time but this slows system processes and can cause headache during the day for inbound calls
