Home phone: what do I get?

I am considering switching from BT to Plusnet home phone, and I want to know what I will get:
1) Will I keep my existing BT number?
2) Will I get caller ID display, so I can see the number calling me?
3) Will I get 1471 (last call information)?
4) Will I get call minder (1571 - answer service)

Re: Home phone: what do I get?

Following on - a couple more questions.
At the moment I am ex directory  (heaven!!) - will I stay that way with Plusnet Home Phone?
My number is withheld on all out going calls, I can "un"withhold it by prefixing 1470. will I stay that way with Plusnet Home Phone?
Thanks

Re: Home phone: what do I get?

think carefully before you change its great while alls well but when there is a fault with the phone line it can take some time to get sorted as plus net use BT  engineers and in my experience its not good I am now on day 12 without my landline
