I believe what you are seeing with the password is normal behaviour. It's certainly the same on my VMG8924-B10A, which uses very similar firmware.
 :)

I've just noticed that I am using 'broadband.user@btinternet.com' as my username. try that perhaps? 
My VDSL settings are attached.

You beaut! That's what did it after all the help from Burakkucat which I couldn't have even come close without.

So now I need to put it into bridge mode which I assume should be fairly simple?

Excellent news. I'm not sure why your original username wasn't working, as plenty of sources say it should do.
I've just always used the one I do as it has always worked for me.

It worked! So relieved, thank you again for your help.

I'm not done, I'm interested to get the very best out of my line. So what can I learn/do next?

I’ve never used NAT with any controls over the detailed behaviour type. What is the recommended choice for that ‘full cone’ option?

Using a VMG1312-B10A as an "all in one" device, I have just one QoS setting enabled -- Upstream Traffic Priority Assigned by Packet Length.

In one word: "Disabled".

The VMG1312-B10A User's Guide states --

Fullcone NAT |  Select this option to enable full cone NAT on this connection. This field is available only when
Enable       |  you activate NAT. In full cone NAT, the Device maps all outgoing packets from an internal IP
             |  address and port to a single IP address and port on the external network. The Device also
             |  maps packets coming to that external IP address and port to the internal IP address and port.

Disabled it is then. That description seems insane gibberish to me; if a device actually ever did that it would be unusable for normal internet access; you can only send to one dest IP address + port combination ? (in which L4 protocols?) someone has no idea what they’re on about. Typical documentation people - don’t understand and too scared to ask the top devs (who are gods) what it all means and how it works.
