      1. No
      2. Don't know.
      But Sky Talk only affects your outgoing calls.
      Caller Display (who's calling you) still works too.
      3. Yes

      But if you don't make atleast 6 paid calls using BT (i.e put 1280 infront) then caller display is 5.75 per month).

      Thanks, Chris.

      BT 'reserves the right' to charge 1.75 per month (5.25 per quarter) for Caller Display if subscribers billed monthly don't make at least 2 chargeable calls (6 calls in a quarter for those billed quarterly).

      From the BT site

      "Customers with other call providers can still benefit from BT Caller Display at no extra cost, if the following calls are made. Customers who bill monthly must make at least two chargeable calls with BT in that month, otherwise BT reserves the right to charge 1.75 a month for BT Caller Display. Customers who bill every three months must make at least six chargeable calls within those three months, otherwise BT reserves the right to charge 5.25 a quarter."

      I'm with Skytalk and my Caller display still works.

      Off to check my BT bill now to see if I pay for it as signing up for Privacy At Home means it's free.

      athough bt say 1571 is free,read the small print as they charge you for listening to your message,also if the bt person asks you to press another button to call that person back,you get charged again

      so i stopped bt 1571,and got me a phone with a built in answer machine

      hope this helps

      Delighted as I am (and as your friends and family probably are - perhaps without realising it) that you had the good sense to DUMP 1571, I'll have to contradict you on that first comment.

      Basic 1571 is (almost) free to have and there are no charges for picking up messages. That '(almost)' is only there in that last sentence because, from 1/5/07, BT will introduce a requirement for users to make 6 chargeable calls/quarter (2 calls/month if you're billed monthly) on BT. That's the same as the requirements to make 6 (or 2) calls to get (nearly) free Caller Display.

      Re: BT 1471 and 1571 on Sky Talk

      I have line rental with BT and calls with Sky Talk.
      Does this mean if I dial 1471, I will get charged Sky's 6p connection charge?
      Or can I be sneaky and dial 1280 1471 to dial 1471 as a BT customer (and get it free)?
      If people don't know, I think an experiment is in hand.
