      If you have opted to have the Sky answer phone, then dial 1571 and check for messages. The BT answerphone starts with 'welcome to BT 1571' the Sky version is different.

      Thanks Koala.

      I did tell Sky at the time I ordered Sky Talk, that I didn't want 1571 as I already have an answering machine.

      The other option dial 150 and see if it goes through to Sky rather than BT.

      Dial 151. If the reply is: "Hello, thanks for calling BT" then you will know that the changeover hasn't taken place yet.

      Thanks very much for the help.

      I'll try that later on tomorrow and see if it says "welcome to Sky" rather than "welcome to BT" which is what it currently says.

      Another option is to dial 17070 and if you're on Sky you'll hear "Hi! I'm Zoe. I'm here to ensure that your phone service is the very best!!! " Yes, you can hear the exclamation marks.
