I plan on calling BT later to cancel my package and move other to Virgin. Only down side if Virgin can't offer me a phone line.
I don't really want to pay 18 quid a month for a phone line that's hardly used. So the question im asking myself is, can i get away with not having a phone line in my house?

Anyone is the same situation and have come across any issue with not having a phone line?

Ditto. The only difference I've noticed is not being called by people with strong accents claiming to be called Steve asking about my PPI/Windows/Whatever is the popular scam du jour this week

Same, although USA mobile phone operators re-use the numbers, so I do get calls asking where Steve is.

Ideally I would like just broadband and no phoneline, but as far as I'm aware most packages come with them both included together.

Does anyone know if there is a way for just broadband/fibre and no phoneline?

I have a phone line as it worked out cheaper. I haven't plugged a phone in and I don't even know what my number is

Virgin do broadband only deals. No line rental required. That's if you're in a cable area.

I have a phone plugged in because sky said I need one when I was having some issues to do line tests, never knew the number, still don't, my brother took the number down and before Christmas pretended to be a virgin media sales person to which I Lost my shit (I'm normally a very calm person) - I'd had a terrible experience and kept getting hassled by them. My brother phoned up 30 minutes later to apologise he felt that bad...whooops

I've not had a phone line for over 10 years. Generally you pay slightly more to not have one. I currently pay 26 a month for 50mb fibre internet with no phone or TV
