I cant believe this company. I had bt anytime problems today where there was always an engaged tone when I dialled 0808 9933001. This also happened from a handset. I was pulled from pillar to post until finally I was so mad I wouldnt let tech support hang up until I had a satisfactory answer, like WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT.
He put me on hold for 5 minutes and then came back to tell me to put 1470,, in front of the dial up number which worked. My connection is faster than ever but I dont know what 1470 does.
Anyone know ??

Cancels Call Waiting, if you have it then inserts 2 pauses to allow it to take effect...

I believe it overides the "Ex-Directory" settings on your phone account. j.

It enables Caller Line Identification. ie sends your number ahead so phone can display the number of the Call and so BT can identify your internet connection.
