VERY IMPORTANT: DONʼT TERMINATE YOUR LANDLINE YET
Terminating your landline will mean your cherished existing phone number will be lost in the ether! This is easy to avoid if you get your new provider to port your number over as that normally terminates automatically once your number is safely transferred.
Please also be aware that if you have a bundled ʻphone and broadbandʼ package then cancelling your broadband could also terminate your landline and your number could be lost. You must ensure you landline remains in operation until the transfer of your phone number to Circle Loop or other VOIP provider is complete.
If you make a mistake and terminate your landline too soon there are companies such as RSR Communications, Salford, who can help rescue your number for around £100.
