    I used this number and got a brilliant deal, at the end of the call the man said "and all for the price of a phone call" , I didn't like to say no even that was free. So thanks for the number.

    Hi All,
    I had a rather horrific day being passed from pillar to post and back to the pillar again for a rather simple issue. I tried the freephone number and the first time it worked (for the 28 minutes), but then after, as you can see, it didn't. Any ideas why anyone?

    26/08/2010 13:39:11 08000512597 00:28:38 £0.00

    They still haven't sorted the issue and I'm hesitant to call back and pay again...

    Please help...

    I've just spoken to T-Mobile, and I'm sure you all know this already but 0800 numbers are only free from landlines.

    Does anyone have a LANDLINE number, rather than a freephone? I need to call them from my mobile
    Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.

    have a look here http://www.saynoto0870.com/search.php


    I have found alternatives to most companies and rarely pay for calls! trouble is that Sky in particular seem to know when we find a freephone no and straight away stop us using it!

    I just used the above number today 6/12/10. There is a recorded message saying "your service has been restricted"! DON'T BE PUT OFF BY THIS!!! When I did get to speak with an operator she transferred me to the technical dept, and I asked her about the message and she said it was because I'd used the freephone number! Are SKY really that desperate or greedy for revenue that they resort to such ploys?!

    Yup...been there!! Once drove from the other side of Lisburn thru Belfast when the West Link was being 'modernised' during rush hour traffic & arrived home & was literally turning into my street before Sky answered the 'installer line'...A distance of over 35miles which took the guts of an hour.
