0845 numbers?

My contract is up in September with Virgin and the problem that might sway me staying with Virgin.
My problem is at the mo i have to ring a lot of 0845 numbers to the certain Govt agencies and this is costing me a fortune so what the best way of getting around this as certain packages with BT do include this in their packages.

Virgin Media's Talk Anywhere plans offer inclusive minutes to landlines,mobiles,0845 and 0870 numbers and International landlines and mobiles.

It basically works like a mobile phone plan.

Talk Anywhere 200 offers 200 minutes for £20 per month including telephone line rental

Talk Anywhere 400 offers 400 minutes for £28 per month including line rental.

Talk Anywhere 800 offers 800 minutes for about £35 per month including telephone line rental.

0500,0800,0808 and free-to-page numbers remain free and will not reduce your minutes. 03 numbers are treated like normal 01 and 02 landlines numbers and will deduct your minutes.

You will not incur call connection fees for the above destinations!
You will incur call connection costs of the numbers below:

Calls to 09 numbers,070,076,07744,07755,0844,0843,0871,0872 and 0873 are not included.
Directory Enquiry services (118 numbers),Operator Assisted calls and Reverse charge calls are not included.

Landline text (BT Text service) costs 10p per text message sent and nothing to recieve texts.

Re: 0845 numbers?

Or you could sign up for a VOIP service like Sipgate which works well over Virgin's excellent cable broadband and make outgoing 0845 calls more cheaply. Their rates are better for overseas and some daytime calls too and there is no ongoing cost - just call costs paid £10 a time in advance which can last a while. You do also need a voip phone or adapter - like some of the Siemens Gigaset models (which also work as a normal cordless phone on the Virgin line).

Re: 0845 numbers?

A good way I have stumbled on was have a dig around and usually it says "if calling from outside the UK call +44 161...etc"

Call that number without the +44 and stick a "0" infront and your away!

Might have to do a bit of looking around on the websites in question.

I used this site only this morning to find an alternative number for the Department of Work & Pensions (Pension Forecasts).

0845 300 0168 = 0191 218 7712

Very good site

Re: 0845 numbers?

Sorry to dump this on you

But because of the vast awareness of the 08 number by-pass, companies like BT will start giving out 08 numbers as the main number for a telephone rather than giving them out as translation numbers,

meaning the actual CLI for the line would be a 08 or 09 number meaning there won't be a way of by-passing them.

Also like I said before most business will move onto 0843,0844,0871,0872 and 0873 numbers in order to keep on claiming revenue share. And my prediction was right.
