    does it work with every number :baby:

    I was very angry when I could not use my free minutes for those numbers on my mobile contract with O2 anymore :evil:

    It does not work for every number unfortunately.

  4. Please be aware that some companies don't charge you for support when they ask you to call an 0870 number. I use the miniscule amounts from my 0870 to fund the fact I support end users with their problems well beyond their server issues half the time.

    0870 to big company - bad, 0870 for a small company - good.

    It works for lots of 0845 numbers, too. Not so big a saving but a help if you're on a free calls deal with your phones.

    This is a great service, i have been using it for a while now.

    If you cannot find a number, the other alternative is to google it.

    "non premium number for ...."

    works every time ;)

    or search for a switch board, always local that way!

    I dont think its fair on people to have to call 0845 0870 numbers, while they reap profits from longcalls.

    It always irritates me that the number to get a service or products is usually a freephone number, but when you call to complain about bad service or shoddy products, it's almost invariably an 0870 number so in order to complain about the bad things you end up giving them more money! Especially annoying when they then put you on hold!

    Another idea is to look out for numbers companies quote to call should you be abroad. Often times they quote 0800 numbers for UK customers but 'normal' numbers if you are calling from abroad. The solution - use the 'foreign' number and knock off the extra numbers at the front.
