If you're switching to Sky, you'll be sent a broadband Hub with a phone socket at the back. Simply plug your phone handset  into the socket. No other setting up is required.Note that a phone designed specifically to work with BT Digital Voice won't work with Sky's digital phone service. You need a standard cabled phone handset or DECT cordless phone.

 

If you have any problems, just post and someone here will try to help.

As @Mark39 indicates, the preparation for the switch-off of PSTN is expected to be largely customer led, with ISPs working in the background to reconfigure their services and send out routers with phone ports when required.  Frankly there aren't enough engineers in the world to carry out the project by the end of next year if home visits were anticipated as being necessary in most cases.
