can anyone advise?
i am with 18866 which i use during the week and use onetel at the weekend.at the moment, my onetel bills are quite substantial ppl in my family do not bother to use 18866 for mobiles. this is especially the case at weekends.
my question is can i set up the orchid dialler so it routes mobile phone calls through 18866 and not onetel, yet at the same time recognising landline calls and routing them through onetel?
thanks in advance
I have been using 2x Orchid V4 diallers for about 2 months now. ( I had two cordless base units at different ends of the house so I needed 2 units but most folk will only need one).
The units plug in betwwen the first BT box and all your phones. It picks up the dialling and routes the call to whatever providers you want depending on the type of call.
As example here is my current setup:
local/national calls - 1866 (1p connection +free )
calls 0845,0870 - BT ( cheapest currently ? )
calls (premium ) - barred
calls 118XXX - the directory enquiry of your choice
calls to USA/Canada - 1899 (3p connection + .5ppm )
calls to Australia - 18866 (1p connection + 2ppm )
other international calls - 18866
The dialler will also alow you to send calls to different providers at certain times of the day as it has a built in clock.
Therefore if a provider offers free nighttime calls you can route those calls to that provider whilst daytime calls go to another provider.
It does take a while to figure out the different functions.
As one can change things on a daily/hourly basis if needed , it means your family do not have to remember prefixes and remember which provider is cheapest for the type of call they are making.
All in all I am very pleased with the Orchid dialler and the help-line service.
