I left BT a few months ago and ported my telephone number to Talk Talk. Before I was with BT I was a Talk Talk customer previously but left.
Now ever since we were with BT, and now Talk Talk we have had nuisance sales/accident type calls.
My question is when I was originally with Talk Talk before I left for BT - I had a telephone number that never got these type of calls. At the time I wanted to port this number to BT but Talk Talk would not allow this - so it's left effectively in a pool of disconnected numbers. I've called the number and it is still disconnected.
I'd like to know whether it's possible to get this old number back, as these sales calls (for someone I've never heard of) are a nightmare.
