I'm not keen on switching over, and only use the landline for incoming calls.
The faq's say that incoming calls will still get through even if I don't switch.
How long will incoming calls continue to work?
== in case people want to know more ==
Why don't I want to switch?
1. Phone and hub are not physically close together, and neither are to be moved.
2. Don't want holes drilled in walls/ceilings and more cables visibly routed through the house.
3. Health issues mean landline is needed for incoming calls from health professionals. Landline is rarely used for outgoing calls. Health pertains to someone in the house, but the person supporting them changes, so the mobile number of one carer is not the most practical solution.
== other solutions we are considering ==
1. Cancel the landline and buy a cheap mobile phone as a replacement. Keep it plugged into the charger and keep it where the landline sits now. But this requires another contract, and payment setup, etc. Which is 10x more complicated when setting things up on someone else's behalf - even with all the relevant permissions and paperwork in place.
2. Cancel all virgin media (phone, broadband, TV) and move to a different supplier. If we've got to move things, drill holes, etc, why not go somewhere cheaper.
