    Help! the Co-operative Insurance has very sneakily replaced all the alternative numbers listed on SAYNOTO0845. So when you phone any of the other numbers all you get is a message saying you now have to dial 08459998888 and no the queue is not any shorter or the price any less!! does anyone have another number I can use? and incidentally NEVER use the Co-operative to insure your car. thanks

    I've used the Saynoto 0870 site for some time now and its saved me quiite a bit of money. However, a lot of organisations have wised up to the fact that BT & SKY have n ow included 0870 numbers in their tariffs and they have started changing over to 0871 numbers. same goes for changing from 0845 to 0844. One loophole that sometimes works or me is- on some sites an organisation includes a number to ring if you are calling from abroad. this is usually their regular landline with the international prefix before it ( usually 0044). If you phone this number without the international prefix & add a nought before the STD code, then you can usually get through. Occasionally, cust service has said they cant deal with me as they are the overseas team, but its worth a try

    Can I make it quite clear that nowadays the problem lies with the 0844 and 0871 nos. and not with the 0845 and 0870 nos. I run a small business and chose an 0845 no. as this enables customers to call me at a cheap rate and enables me to provide an easily memorable no. for my customers. I am also aware that 0845 and 0870 nos. are often included in free call packages, from BT for example.

    Can I suggest that we change the title of this thread from 'Say no to 0845' to 'say no to 0844'.

    Why not use an 03 number?

    03 numbers are charged at the same rate as 01 and 02 numbers.

    See Ofcom's description.

    I think one of the things people object to is revenue sharing. Why should a company make money when someone phones them?

    The (excellent) website is still called www.saynoto0870.com. I don't know what it was called in 2004 and, before someone tells me, I don't care ;-)

    0845/70 numbers are still a rip off from all (?) mobiles

    Dear All

    If we call from our mobile PAYG how much approximately will it cost per Min to call. I am aware that this will vary depend on the number but I am asking the cost in average:

    0845
    0870

    I understand that 0844 and 0870 will be more expensive how much approximately will it cost in AVERAGE per Min
