I'm now due/elgible for an Upgrade and my current Contract expires on 14th November 2016. My next bill is due 26th October (2 days time).
I have seen a better deal on a 3rd party online retailer, however, the Sales Representative over the telephone just about matched it, so I Upgraded (apart from £300 of "free" gifts; I paid the same monthly payment but without gifts).
Part of clinching the deal was the 30 Day Notice Period. He said that if I "Cancelled" today and obtained my PAC code, then bought from the online retailer and this all went through, I'd essentially owe a whole months line rental? Is this correct? I thought it was a Pro Rata cost from the day after the bill date vs. the number transfer date.
Bill Date: 26th October
PAC Transfer: 28th October (for example).
Final Bill: 2 days @ £25/month = £1.66 (£25 / 30 * 2)
Or am I mistaken. Having thought you are always 1 month in advance, I thought your final bill is just the amount of the month you've taken, not a full month?
In summary he said I'd pay:
£25 on 26th October (current EE bill)
£25 (new provider initial rental in the near future, for example)
£25 on 26th November (final EE bill)
Was he correct?
