Special Services phone numbers.

Go to solution

I've just been looking at my phone usage for the last month and I've noticed a lot of  0844 numbers made during the day, when I'm not at home. They are classed as Special services. Any idea what they might be please ? The only things that I have connected to the phone line is my BT Infinity and a monitered burglar alarm.

Hope you've got the Anytime Calls add-on! It could be the alarm. Have you tried googling the number(s) or calling them?

I haven't got the anytime add on, didn't know what it was & still don't ! ! I'll try ringing one of the numbers because I tried Googling it but only got people saying it was Spam.

Sorry, my mistake. Anytime gives you free calls during the day, but it doesn't include 0844 numbers.

I've tried ringing the numbers and it turns out that my husband rang The AA, Santander and the Alarm company but forgot to tell me ! No problem, just wish he'd told me! Thanks for all your help.

Hi yorkshirelass,

 

Tell him to check the numbers with http://www.saynoto0870.com/.

There is a very good chance that it will provide an alternative freephone or geographic number so the calls are free.

Best regards,
