Vodephone are saying no more line rental but is that really true. Or is it just the case of it no longer showing as a item in the bill.

Unlimited fibre 76 £28, no line rental. I pay £24.49, £11.51 for broadband and £12.99 for line rental.

called in the Vodaphone shop,
a.t.m I am with BT FTTC  52 x 10 + free uk calls 24/7  = £51.99
                  Vodaphone  76 x20  +   "           "           =£36.00
the downside is a activation fee £49.99 ,  18 month contract ,& loss of 2 BT email addresses , but the annual saving of  £192 is tempting,

As snadge has said you will be able to keep your BT email address, i still have mine some 3 years after leaving BT   ;)
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former

just checked  on line , both my BT  email addresses are on BT Mail  services  ?
no mention of Yahoo , if I lost the main bt address it would be catastrophic ,
there would be financial implications for me , :(  that's the problem of having a email address for more than 12 years

Changing ISPís is fast becoming a nightmare ,  decided to leave BT  and sign up with Vodafone , 28%b faster & £16 cheaper a month , ( inc 24/7 free land line calls as before )
Been a BT customer for 10 years ,
So off I gaily went ( can a heterosexual male use the word "gaily" theses days  ;)
and signed up at the local Vodafone shop ,  it all happens on the 14th Oct  (activation day )  just got a email from BT  saying sorry you are leaving,  there will be a charge for early ? termination  in your case it will be £260 ,  my last contact with BT was 2.1/2 years back when I moved house ,  they did a lift and shift of my phone & fttc B.B .  naturally time I got the email their advisor's had shut up shop  for the night  >:D
no doubt more to follow , will be on the jelly bone  at 8.05 am tomorrow ,

Any news Roco? BT tried to charge me a termination charge despite them promising no charges if you left due to price increases. Took a good few complaint calls to get it resolved, would never go with them again.

It's been a long day , BT  :'( , turns out I am still in a contract ,I took the absolutely free speed increase  in June  ( up from 40Mbps to 52 , ) without reading the small print  >:D ,  anyway had a long chat with a BT advisor ,
now staying with BT , got a deal £2 pounds cheaper than Vodafone ,
and a "special existing customer gift" , a free sim  2G- 4G with 100 mins per week free , although my speed  stays at 52  Mbps , which is all I need 
just cancelled Vodafone , they took it well , seems like there no line rental is a bit of a con ?,  they just loose it in the broadband package as included,
mind you I still don't have any love for BT ,

Glad you got things sorted Roco. I was wondering how you'd go on cancelling with Vodafone. How long is your new BT contract?

Hi Thar
still playing piggy in in the middle , have cancel by phone the
Vodafone line take over  , just got a voda  email saying welcome your new service is programmed to start on the 14th of Oct
meanwhile by post I got my free sim card , from  bt, I said let me think this over , the bt contact is for 2 years ,  with a no price increase ,
so I was told by phone  , still waiting  to see it  by letter , before my next commitment ,
frankly I don't trust either ISP's or any . unless I ,get  by post ,
they all seem like double gazing salesmen .
