16. Some of just-dial Instant access numbers don't work for me?

  • Some UK operators may not allow calls to just-dial access numbers. You should contact your provider and ask them to make the number available for you to use.
  • Calls to 09 numbers could be barred from your phone. Please contact your service provider to have the bar lifted.
  • Some Indirect Access providers do not allow calls to some or all of our access numbers. If you normally dial an Indirect Access code before your calls (for example 1833 for Alpha Telecom or 1877 for Onetel) you simply omit this code and dial the just-dial Instant access number directly. Omitting the Indirect Access code means the iust-dial call will be charged by your phone line provider (usually BT). If you are using a Onetel PhonePal you can either unplug the PhonePal or dial 1-2-1 to bypass it. Should you have chosen the Onetel 'Select' option we would advise to contact Onetel to provide you with a code to override this feature.

18. Why don't I get calls to just-dial Instant access numbers included in my 'inclusive' minutes?

  • Many providers only include calls to geographic or mobile destinations within any 'inclusive' minutes - numbers generally beginning 01, 02, 03 and 07 - as such numbers like just-dial Instant access numbers are excluded and will be charged like any destinations that are not part of the package that you have arranged with your provider. It is always best to check the rate that your provider charges before you call.

19. The just-dial access number for my destination is 09; are these expensive?

  • 09 numbers are classified as premium rate; however prices for premium rate numbers vary enormously depending on which number you are ringing.
