Re: problem with my order

Thanks for your post @jamesrambler40 and welcome to our Community Forums.

I'm sorry to see there's an issue with processing your order.

From what I can see there's a product known as "Social Telephony" on your line, which is normally BT Basic. 

We'll need you to ask your current provider to remove this as it's stopping us from taking over your line.

Once you've done this or if there are any issues, feel free to let me know.

Re: problem with my order

Thanks for getting back to me @jamesrambler40

From what I can see Social Telephony is still showing as enabled on your line.

Have you received confirmation from your current provider that it's definitely been taken off? 

Regarding your reward card, you'll receive an email within 10 days of your service going live with instructions on how to claim it. Once you've claimed, we'll post it out to you within 30 days.

Hi @jamesrambler40

Ah it may take some time for the service to be removed. 

Would you be able to ask BT for a timeframe?

Re: problem with my order

Hiya @jamesramble40, thanks for getting back to us.

 

I am sorry for the issues and the inconvenience this is causing. I have had a check and it looks like the BT Basic is still live on the number. As far as I know, from being requested to be removed it should only be a few hours before being complete (but would be best to check this with BT).

 

I'm really sorry for the back and forth you are facing here but I would advise to give them a call back.

 

Let us know how this goes!

Re: problem with my order

I have noiw called BT and they have inofmed me that the date when the BT Basic is taken off the line with be the 12th january 2022. I was not informed of this the first time i rang BT as they said it would be taken off straight away but today they have told me that a period of 30 days notice is required which should not be the case as i have been with them years and would not be in a contract period. Anyway this effects my plusnet account as i am due to have my internet started on the 22nd December so can you please advise what will happen with my plusnet agreed switch on date....i am so frustrated with BT as they kept emphasising that they are less expensive than plaunet with their BT basic plan. I think they make it difficult for customers leaving even though i have paid all my bills and been a deducated customer for years........Anyway i am upset that my planned internet switch on might now be delayed as i have a daughter in america who i wanted to see on facetime over Chritmas. Please can you assist me with this and nform me what is going to happen. kind regards

@jamesrambler40  I dont want to be alarmist and I hope I'm wrong, but that sounds like BT may have treated your request as a complete cancellation of the line rather than just removing the BT Basic. If that's the case then there will be a cease order which will prevent PlusNet placing any order until it completes on the 12th Jan

@LaurenB  can one of the Help team check if there is a cease on the line ?

Thanks for getting back to us @jamesrambler40

Nothing's going to happen for now, your services should remain active with BT until 12/01/2022 until it's ceased. We'll then be able to place our orders to provide a service, although you will incur some downtime in the meantime whie our orders are progressing.

@adam945 so BT have taken the request as a cancellation and placed a cease then ? rather than just revert the line to normal and remove the BT Basic

Re: problem with my order

Correct @MisterW

I thought that's strange too to be honest. Historically though, I've always had issues with accounts in similar situations where the customer is trying to get Social telephony removed.

Re: problem with my order

@adam945 since there's a cease, wont that give a problem with retaining the number when the new orders are placed ?

Re: problem with my order

Good question @MisterW

Not in this case. When a number is ceased, it returns back to the range holder. In this case, the range holder is BT. So we'll be able to retain it here. Smiley
