UK landline non-security (and Orange clue)

This is a good story to read: http://www.sirena.org.uk/log/2012/10/31 ... ange-clue/

The first para reads...

"Yesterday when I got in from work I got my second letter in as many months through from BT saying that my account was being closed as my landline was being transferred to another provider. This was the first I’d heard of this and it causes a cancellation charge so I called to complain; the first time I did this they said they couldn’t tell me anything about who the line had been transferred to. They did tell me that there was no equivalent of PAC or MAC for landlines and that the only thing stopping this happening is the two week delay in implementing."

It's from a blog by a guy called Mark Brown -- mostly concerned with technical things (though with a smattering of film). http://www.sirena.org.uk/log/about-the-author/

Enjoy :mrgreen:

You really should need more information than just the phone number itself to transfer a number.
flippin right :shock: crazy and what a shocking report 8-)
On the slightly bright side I still appear to have phone service; presumably currently paid for by whoever is initiating the transfers.
:o what the heck? :geek:
