[FONT="]I have been using Primus (now Fuel Broadband) for some years and have had no problems using 18185 with them. Their line rental has gone up and I am in the course of switching to the Post Office who (though not as cheap as Direct Telecom) I thought allowed 18185. I have now had a phone call from the Post Office support (in response to a web query sent 3 weeks ago) saying I can not use 18185. Has anyone direct experience of using 18185 with the Post Office (not via the 0800 route)? I note the T&C ban pre carrier selection but make no reference to override providers.[/FONT]

Yes, quite possible and always worth bearing in mind.
I have another query for the enlightened here. I phoned one company today, I won't name them, and asked a few questions about a certain promotion. I gave no personal details whatsoever. The lady I spoke to said she would have to ring me back, as one of the questions I had asked needed her to get clarification from a manager. She then told me my phone number and asked if she should ring me back on that number.
Now, I currently have the BT Privacy service active on my line, I tested it was still working after the call ended and it was, so how on earth did she know what my number was? :eek: Was this legal? I don't wish to make a big deal about this, but it was a bit disconcerting to know some companies can still see your number when it is supposed to be hidden. I told her my number better not go on any database, so if they ring me up again with any sales calls they certainly won't be getting my business!
