First time I've actually followed through with this process on the advice of many!

You should NEVER take this approach unless you intend to follow through if they call your bluff.

Phone line left open in order to retain phone number for switch - would this prevent me being identified by the outbound team as a 'leaver'?
Yes, I believe because you've kept the phone service live, you won't get a callback until VM receive a request to takeover your number from a new provider.

I've been told as of 2 days ago that one will be sent. But some info that I've read on here seems to say that there are no V6 boxes available anymore. Just the 360 box.
V6s are still available if you need one.

Yes cheers. I have one on the way. Was just a tad worried whether it will actually come at all or not. Because on here, and elsewhere it seemed as though some people were saying that V6s weren't available anymore. Just the 360.

Think that's just for new customers.

Don't speak too soon.

Our contract finishes in just under 4 weeks so there is going to be some tough bargaining if they want to keep our custom.

Re: New price rises 2021!

Just an update. I decided to call back this morning before confirming an order elsewhere.

Offered Ultimate Oomph for £95 for 18 months so decided to take that. Could have held out but it's not far off the new customer price so reasonably happy with that.

Hmmm, wish I’d had the bottle to follow through when my renewal was due in January, I took the £110 offer

Does your new Ultimate Oomph include UHD?

Re: New price rises 2021!

I asked and was told it does. Changes go through from tomorrow so I'll check and report back. I'll be on the blower if not!

Turns out didn't include Sky UHD Couple of phone calls later and they've agreed to honour it with a rolling bill credit of £6.

Updated contract shows £101 rather than £95 but I'm guessing it won't reflect the bill credit. Proof will be in the pudding - i'll keep a close eye!
