  • anyone else had the "International" experience coming up on other people's caller displays? really want to get o the bottom of this... thanks :O)

    Yes, if I dial out using 18866 to a couple of friends who have caller display it comes up as if its an international number. As your number is shown on your 18866 account in fact.
  • johnny. My friends do not have a caller display phone. They just dial 1471 and it shows just the std and phone number.

    Also I have just checked the 18866 website and it is still showing 1p connection and I have just checked my bill for a phone call made 5 minutes ago and it is still on 0.0099 plus vat.

    Just checked my bill & still 1p per minute.Have been with 18866 & 1899 since last October & am delighted with the savings(I'm a pensioner & every little helps) Only been billed once so far because cost is so mimimal! BT are the bugbear at £10.50 a month but at least my use of them is minimal (09 & 0845 numbers). My brother lives 4 miles away & when I phone him it shows international but it doesn't bother him as he knows it's me calling!! Recently changed my Vodaphone rental to pay as you go & now use my mobile for text messages only.Started with £15 credit on Dec.26th & still have £14 credit left.Should have done this years ago.Calls are expensive though at 35p a minute for first 3 minutes but have not had to make any calls yet.Really just for emergencies.
  • I've been using 18866 for a time now and have nothing at all to do with BT. I pay my line rental to One Bill Telecom, £10.50 a month includin VAT. No Problem. I would advise anyone to get away from BT if they can, I never have any calls from them offering any of their fantastic expensive offers!!
  • My number is x directory and not displayed to anybody I call.

    If I use the 18866 service will my number be displayed or available to the numbers I dial??

  • The 18866 website today - at 16.05 hrs - still states "1p connection charge" not 3p. Sure you're not confusing it with 1899, boblevin ??

    I was sihgned with 1899 about week ago. They advertise one price but in reality sometimes it is different. eg. US calls not for 0p but 1p/min. And when I call to 0845 or 0870 numbers, it is sometimes don't get throug and I try to call direct to those numbers, it works. May be this happened with somebody else. don't know. :(

    I don't know what number you were using or dialling but I made 2 calls to the US earlier today for more than an hour each for only 3P per call. Are you sure you are using 1899 ?
    Do I want it? ......Do I need it? ......What would happen if I don't buy it??????

    If you are calling from a cable landline savalan, that is the published price.
