    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

    Dear Savvy_Sue & All

    Sorry for my ignorance. Let say My standard mobile phone PAYG call to Land line number is .30 per minute during the day.

    If I am using the same mobile to call to O845, 0870 is there any different in charge, if there is no specific answer just in general how much more do I need to pay ?.

    Thank You
    Adindas

    As explained, there's no way of telling without knowing what network you are with and what kind of plan they have you on, and even then there would be guesswork involved.

    Best to ask your network; maybe start by checking their website.

    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'.

    i always get an alternative number as i make most of my calls in with my Sky package, after 7pm so a generic number is free where a 0845 number can be very expensive.

    First does anyone know what's happened to saynoto0870 last couple of days - it was working fine last week, then since yesterday I just cant get it? Sometimes I get a bunce front page, othertimes timeout.

    And I agree with those recent posts, the point is that most service providers nowadays give you 'free' landline (& most mobile operators also give free mobile) calls as part of a call package however 0845/0870/0844 etc are all charged for.

    So it's really frustrating to have to pay to call my bank, utility company etc. when that could be free - esp. as someone said, when you spend 10 mins in a queue.

    To carlos64 I would say by all means have an 0845 for customers who dont get 'free' calls, but also publish your landline for those who do - that, i believe is all we are asking!

    I've just been on saynoto0870, looking up a Cotton Traders number.


    0845 and 0870 are free with Talktalk (checked my bill), but watch out for 0844 and 0871

    I think it depends on which package you are on

    Hi babyj3,

    The package you are on (TalkTalk international anytime) does not include free 0845/0870. 0845/0870 are included as part of the package with TalkTalk Essentials or TalkTalk Pro.

    If you do wish these to be included as part of your package then you can change to TalkTalk Essentials or TalkTalk Pro. Details of these prices can be found on the TalkTalk website.

    Regards
