When you subscribe to this how far down can the network pin you?

If my postcode is BT15 5AA can I get free call in all of BT15 or just in BT15 5AA?

I can't see how the network could pin point you to the space of just a few houses, or am I being naive?

User2008,

I would imagine it is the full postcode, otherwise you would be restricted to a dozen houses or so.

It's just for your postcode, but most post codes cover a group of houses and just not one.

I know it says that but what I'm really asking is how accurate is the system?

The network will know which postcode you are in by the cellsite your phone picks up its signal from. Using this information can usually be very accurate, as cellsite information has been used to trace crime in the past.
