Frequently Asked Questions    

What happens when I join Microtalk?

You simply sign up with us, either online or by calling our sales line 0800 814 4404. We'll write to you to confirm the date of the switch, and you should be on one of our call plans within 14 working days. You don't have to contact your current supplier to cancel; we do it for you. You start enjoying Microtalk rates as soon as your line is switched.

What do I need to join Microtalk?

All you need is your existing home phone and a BT landline (or a similar, non-cable line, e.g. Homecall, Post Office). Microtalk is not available to cable customers, or to BT customers on the Low User scheme. We don't recommend that you activate Microtalk on lines used for burglar or fire alarms.

Will I still receive a line rental bill from BT or other service provider?

Yes. You will still receive a bill from BT or other service provider for line rental, if you have chosen not to use Microtalk for your line rental and for any other services or calls you make which are not routed through your Microtalk Broadband and phone calls package.

Is line rental included with my Microtalk phone calls package?

If you have registered through our website or over the telephone and if you haven't chosen to exclude line rental, then it must be included in your call package.

I have cable at home - can I have Microtalk phone calls?

No. Unfortunately your home telephone line must be provided by BT in order for you to have Microtalk phone calls.

What will happen if I cancel my BT line?

Unfortunately if you cancel your BT line your Microtalk Broadband and phone calls services will automatically be cancelled.

How do I get a second line?

If you require a secondary line, you can arrange for this directly via BT or through Microtalk.

Can I change my direct debit date?

Our standard Microtalk call limit is 50 per month for residential customers and 200 for business customers. This can be raised or lowered by speaking to Customer Services.

How do I change my calling plan?

How do I change my Direct Debit details?

To change the account we collect payment from, Go to your online account and select Direct Debits under Payment. We are unable to change the date your bill is sent out, and hence the date your direct debit is extracted. This is due to the fact that our system is totally automated. Payment will be extracted from your bank account 14 days after the Invoice Date on your bill.

How do I change my address?

If you are changing address, please contact Customer Services as soon as you have a firm moving date. We can then switch your broadband and your landline over to the new house without any problem and without incurring any additional costs from Microtalk - you will not be charged the connection fee again. However, you will need to sign a new contract for the new property.

This service is dependent on the network availability of your new house. If there is no BT line at the new house then you will need to get one installed - but be aware you may incur a cancellation fee if disconnecting from another supplier.

The following information is required when contacting us (please enter in the Additional Information section):

  • The full address and postcode of the new house
  • The date you are moving out of the current address
  • Whether there is an active / inactive BT telephone line at the new address
  • The existing telephone number of the line at the new address (if it is active).
