Change phone Number

Is it possible to request a new number please? 

We inherited the number we have but the we are inundated with calls for the previous owner who is totally incompetent and can't figure out what to do etc..Hence no one knows they moved

Re: Change phone Number

I inquired about this a couple of weeks ago and was told it can be changed at a cost of £36 and a few pence.

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Hi there.

As Pete11 advises, that’s certainly possible, the renumbering fee would be £36.63 though.

From 31st October 2022, I no longer have a regular presence here as I’ve moved on to a new role.

Re: Change phone Number

I'd be inclined to pay, for the convenience, but also send the previous owner a bill.
