      When to switch from BT to Sky Talk unlimited

      Hi, I am sorry if this is a dumb question, but I have checked earlier posts and the Sky Q&As and cannot find an answer.

      Currently I have Sky HD TV and Broadband unlimited. My contract with BT for their Evening and Weekend plan ends on 26 April 2010. I have told them NOT to renew the annual contract. Do I need to wait until 26 April to instruct Sky to add Sky Talk UL? Clearly the aim is to avoid paying any penalty to BT, while retaining my number and call capability.

      Thanks for your help.

      As it takes a few days to switch over, you would be better to start the process now. Just make sure you tell them you want to switch over on the 26th. There is no question of loosing your number as long as you keep your rental with BT. If you switch your rental to Sky and subsequently leave for another provider, then you would probably loose your number.

      BT Talk Unlimited does not get you a discount on your Broadband

      Thanks to all for the helpful posts.

      Yes the change is to take advantage of the discount on BB.
