    strange dial tone

    This is a discussion on strange dial tone within the Sky Talk forums, part of the Other Sky help and support category; I agree, it is advertised as a free service with Sky rental, ergo, it should be available at no charge ...

      I agree, it is advertised as a free service with Sky rental, ergo, it should be available at no charge no matter how much you are paying, or not paying, for the rental.

      Caller Display -See who’s calling before you answer. If a number’s in your phonebook you’ll even see the name. -No Extra Charge (on request)


      Anonymous Caller Reject -Reject calls from people who withhold their number.- £4.00 per month
      I bet if you wanted to add Anonymous Caller Reject they would do it without question.

      Re: strange dial tone

      I got Caller ID added 2 weeks after I switched from BT to Sky. I'm on 12 months free line rental + 6 months free Unlimited. This change has made no effect on my billing, i.e. it has not changed what I am being charged for Sky Talk.

      Yes, have to agree about the caller display - ,y line rental due to go over on the 21st, and will be expecting caller display, as I have now..

      I did request permanent number witheld, but apparently this has to be activated after the transfer - I sincerely hope they don't think they will be cancellling my 6 months 1/2 price line renatal just because I want my number witheld!

      Hi

      Like markyb I too had exactly the same dial tone on my phone.

      I've never heard of 1571 so dialled the number and had 7 messages!!!!!!

      I don't want 1571 though as I have an answering machine at home which people can ;leave messages on if they wish.

      I do use Caller display though which I am happy with.

      How can I cancel 1571 but keep Caller Display?

      Ring Sky and tell them to take it off - All it does is cost your callers money, as if you are engaged, they get charged when 1571 answers...
