From past experience this dosent work, and with some isps, login/passwords are not even required because they know exactly where the connection terminates anyway.

depends if its port based, or PPP authentication. 

back when i was on vodafone, you could use different accounts like your looking to do.

IIRC vodafone ADSL is PPP but that could have changed now, @TimA will confirm that though.

I've been mucked around by vodafone for over 1 month now. Just trying to get something as easy as upgrading to a new plan with phone etc and having it shifted over to my main phone line from the 2nd phoneline. So I can cancel my 2nd phone line.

Been without my main voice line for 3 weeks now

Probably would have saved a lot of grey hairs if you got an electrician to swap the pairs or done it yourself :)
I am assuming they terminate next to each other, Effectively its a complete relocation on the Chorus end so they need to schedule a tech and cross the service over etc.

VDSL is port based on VF.

Some ADSL are PPP based and some are port based, depending on various factors.

Well I still have only 1 active phoneline, but now Vodafone have given me a 2nd login details etc

I give up I have no idea what they are doing or why I need 2 sets of login details. The adsl on the 2nd phone line is working fine

TCL lines are mainly port based.

Vodafone ADSL is all PPP.
