    using 18185 with Three mobile
    sorry if asking this here is not the correct place but here goes.

    i have used 18185 for quite a long time on my landline and when i registered, added my mobile number too. i am with Three on PAYG and cant use 18185. is it because of being on PAYG, or being with Three or am i not dialing correctly? i want to call the USA, so do i dial 18185 001 then the rest of the number or do i dial something different?

    I've been using this service for some years and find it fine.
    Sometimes I know it isn't connecting correctly because it tells me the wrong price!-e.g I know that calls to mobiles in Eire are 11pence per minute not 1 pence. Equally if it says 'There is no answer' after a couple of rings I just cut off and dial later.
    It has saved me a fortune dialling overseas numbers rather than use Talktalk.
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!
