BT Master Socket and Faceplate

I have noticed that you can buy a new faceplate for your master socket. This should eliminate any problems with the splitter not seating correctly. Now you can purchase these at a reasonable price. But according to BT you can't change this and if you do and any faults occur you will be charged £70 for the callout, then for whatever time engineer is on your premises for. This is charged per hourly rate and doesn't matter if they are there for 5 mins of 60mins you pay for 1 hour , and this is on top of the callout fee. This even goes if you want them to swap the faceplate over themselves.

I would have thought that the £70 included the first hour on site, as with most other companies this is included in the callout fee.

So can a user actually replace these faceplates themselves as your allowed to add extensions meaning you can remove the faceplate and reseat it. Wouldn't this just be the same..

Go ahead and replace it with the new one - but keep the old one. If you ever need to call BT, put the old one back on and go ahead and call them. :lol:
