i think you'll find 0800 numbers are freephone!!! all the time

only mobile networks can charge for 0800, as they hv an infrastructure to support.

anyway, if sky do, i think you need to report them to Ofcom.

but assume not.

If you're only using Sky as your CPS calls provider, play safe and prefix 0500, 0800 and 0808 calls with 1280 to send them via BT.
Much of the advice on residential telephony I have given over the past 9 years or so is now gradually being overtaken by changes in the retail market. Hence, I have now deleted links to my previous 'pearls of wisdom'. I sincerely hope they helped save some of you money.
I will continue to help with Orchid programming whenever possible.

Thanks Heinz. I do route all the above calls via BT, however in my orchid dialling rules there isnt a 1280# prefix to the new 0800 directory enquiries you mentioned in your latest 'dialling rules' (or there wasnt at the weekend)

An oversight on my part I'm afraid - I asked Orchid to add the Carrier 0800100100 but forgot the 1280 prefix.

My oversight has now been corrected.

1280#0800100100 now also (as well as 0800100100) appears in CW Client's drop-down list of Carriers.

That is also the Carrier to which dialling 192 in translated in the 19 February 2008 update to the program.
