      you can't have the line rental - as you say, you're in contract with BT - but you should be able to get the call package...call SkyTalk and ask!!

      Thanks once again, i was going to call sky and ask them but i thought i might get a sales rep who will lie to me saying yes you can join sky talk and no you will not get a cancelation fee from Bt , Then all of a sudden a fine from BT or a fee

      So i just wanted to be absoultly sure if many others have done this same thing so early into there One day old Bt contract But I think i can be done where as im not going to transfer the whole line to sky just the sky tlk call carrier service So why should BT care after all im still paying them there line rental

      I wish i could go whole sky line rental But i dont want to pay the BT fee so i will have to stay till my contract is up

      I think IANTE is correct, have a good look at the BT contract, make sure it is for Rental only and does not include calls. I would not believe Sky Sales either.

      Having had a look at their T & Cs, it looks like if you have started the plan you are in a 12 month contact for it. Furthermore it is 12 Months renewable which means when your first 12 months are up you automatically start another 12 months, unless you cancel. Looks like BT are fed up with others stealing their customers
