Most numbers from most operators in the UK are portable, however it comes 
with a price - and that's usually cancellation of all services attached to 
the line - i.e. ADSL....

So actually porting-in a BT line that's your only BT line which carries 
your ADSL signal is costly as you need to provision a 2nd line (from BT or 
a BT Wholesale partner), then transfer your ADSL over to it, then port in 
your number. That's very costly to do and you're not going to get much 
change out of 200 quid.
