Default Dialling Spain from UK - Spanish 902 numbers

I am trying to use a non-BT service to dial a Spanish number that begins with 00 34 902.

Whether I try 1899, 18185 or the '0844' providers, I get exactly the same automated message - it says that this is a special service number and one that can not be connected using their service.

I've scanned the Internet to come up with an alternate number but with no luck. At this rate I'll have to use BT at 11.5 ppm evenings and weekends - gulp ! And I have several calls to make there in the next week.

Has anyone come across this before or have any suggestions ?

Thanks

Most VoIP and discount telephone companies refuse to dial 902 numbers.

However, Jajah (http://www.jajah.com/) will dial 902 numbers at standard Spanish landline rates. I don't know if this works for all 902 numbers but it certainly works for some.

Also, have you tried this site (looks like the Spanish equivalent of saynoto0870)?

Thanks benjus - I did try nomasnumeros900.com but it didn´t find it.

Anyway, problem solved - they have emailed me a regular landline ´968´number that I can use instead
