      Are calls to sky free on PAYG talk, crackling line after switch.

      Just switched over from BT line rental, and the line is crackling it was perfect on monday the day before the switch, but as we have had no calls since the switch 2 days ago i have only just noticed the crackling.
      Also is it free to contact sky as in thread title sky talk PAYG.
      Any particular phone number best for this problem?

      Not sure about PAYG but calls to Sky are normally free with most call plans which include 01,02, and 03 numbers. The number to call is 03442 411 653

      Will have to search to see about free calls to sky with payg talk.

      Just checked my router stats and there is a bit of a change, long line att 56.db.

      Download gone from 3704 to 4344
      upload gone from 560 to 1072
      noise margin gone from 6.1db to 8.6 db.

      Plus in the logs there is a mention of xdsl G.994 training.

      Its not a new BB connection only the line was switched to sky, had sky BB for 8 years.

      Do you mean the Sky Pay As You Talk tariff, rather than payg.
      Calls to sky using the 03 number is free to all sky talk customers.

      Dial 150 from your home phone if you are in Sky Talk. That's definitely free of charge!

      Also do i need to activate caller id and what about something i dont need voicemail 1571?

      If i activate caller id by phone call to sky, does it start a new minimum term, just want to make sure even though
      the line is only a few days in since the switch.

      Changing your Sky Talk calls package or changing calling features will not have any effect on the duration of your Sky contract.

      You can add calling features and also change some features online. Sign in to My Sky and select "Customise your package" from the My Sky drop down menu. Click on the blue down arrow next to Call features to see the options available.

      I always dial 150 to call Sky. It goes through to the same interactive menu system as the other numbers.

      My apologies, I had thought you were referring to a PAYG mobile. All calls to Sky from a Sky line are free, whether you have a call plan or not.
