      Yes. However, although you'd save 50p/month by doing so, you'd lose the ability to use other providers (see the HERE link in my signature below) and to use the 1280 prefix to 'hop back onto BT' when appropriate to avoid Sky's outrageous charges for 0845 and non-Sky 0870 calls.

      If you've just moved house you probably have a 12 month contract with BT.

      Yep if you got BT to install a line or activate it you will probably find you have started a 12 month contract period

      What are the implications. I was orioginally wit Bt for a couple of years when we bought the new house, moved to another provider, moved back to BT at the end of last year and have now signed up to BT.

      Will they just say no you are under a 12 month contract with BT or try and further rip me off with additiional costs

      You will need to check with BT what terms you have signed up to, I recently went back to BT ( last month ) and am in a 12 month contract.

      If you are within a contract period you will be given the option of paying out your contract by paying the remaining months line rental to be released from BT to go with whoever you want.

      That should be interesting then seeing as although I did know the T&C's the BT person never stated it was a 12 month contract on the phone.

      Will BT block Skys transfer or will Sky start charging me so I'm paying two lots of rental. We shall see.

      Re: sky talk line rental does this replace bt line rental ?

      Sorry to keep going over the question. I bought my house a year gone June, but didnt move in until November 2007. We never bothered getting a phone line as BT was too expensive. So can I now get a land line through Sky without going through BT at all. Does anyone know how much this costs to set up? Thanks
