    All users of 18866 should be aware that they now charge a 3p connection for uk calls and not 1p. This started a few days ago. They now announce 0 pence per minute. This no longer gives them a competitive edge for me.
    Thanks for that info boblevin - didn't know 18866 had changed their connection fee. I just assumed they were looking after their customers and giving them a free phone call - how naive of me!!! What do you consider the best deal then for daytime calls?

    Why do you think this? I've checked their website and my invoice and they're still charging me 1p.

    Still 18866 as the connection fee is 1p and not 3p as posted :D
  • Only BT are required to allow access to other providers.

    I think you’ll find that, somewhere in the small print, Bulldog will require you to make all voice calls via them (they can probably bar specific prefix codes if they want to anyway).

    [font=&quot]What are their charges for voice calls?[/font]
    It's 3p a min during the day (8-6) and 5.5p per hour in the evening and weekends for national calls, but international are eg 9p to HK, far higher than 18866 or 1899. They state they do not support CPS although 1471 and 141 still works. So nothing about these 2 numbers...
  • I use 18866 which is fantastic and then I've registered (free) to Tiscali's free weekend calls to UK landlines. My phone bills are usually no more than 50 pence for the lot!! Plus my BT line rental of course which is the stinger!

    You could, of course, register to TalkTalk1+ or Onetel for free w/end AND evening calls to UK landlines with £20 credit from Onetel if you register online before the end of February :)

    Looking to raise some money ;)
  • Saved loads of money with 18866 early last year onwards but had problems with direct debit (before you ask, no probs with accounts). Had to send a cheque 4 months running after which they cancelled account. Have re-applied but they're not replying...no surprise. Can anyone recommend any alternatives. I travel worldwide once a week so miss it massively. Hate having to nip out and buy poxy cards. Thx in advance.
  • I thought you could not pay by direct debit. I thought it had to be credit or debit card?
