Why is it that now that I pay £9.99 per month to get all my 01 and 02 telephone calls for free ( up yo 59 mins ) that every company I want to phone has a 0845 or 087 number? Even my bank will not talk to me unless I ring one of their premium rate numbers.They all of course play ridiculous music or advertise themselves for 5 mins. before they answer just to increase the rake off they get from the phone company.
I feel exactly the same as it seemeed to happen to me too
There is a site s-aynoto0870.com ( the - between the s & a is to stop it turning into a click here ) where you can type in the number and it will give you the geographic number starting 01 or 02 , if avail;able of course. It works for 0845 numbers too
I am aware of the site you have suggested and have used them a couple of times.It's the principal of the thing that gets my goat.Many older or poorer people do not have internet acess.British Gas for instance shows 4 different 0845 nos. on their gas bill plus a 0870 no.
Tesco's are wrong if they don't accept the item back in the store it was purchased from. The customer has the right to return it whencw it came and not be fobbed off with a 'phone number, and Tesco's know that.
