It does but I pay an extra 99p a month for caller-id. BT charged £5 for that.

i ditched landline phones years ago (about 10) and switched to VOIP, never looked back. i'm on the old contract so can basically phone anywhere in the world for free up to an hour and mobiles are 5p min. i can also link my mobile and get cheaper calls but i keep forgetting.

I can't say that I use the landline much, it's purely for broadband. My wife and I both have 1000 free minutes on our mobiles so we use those most of the time.

Today was a good day. Bike passed its MOT. Fixed son's dead electric car window. RST replaced my 14 month old boots after they started to delaminate.
