118 118

Recommended Posts

Just a warning folks - To all those that use the directory enquiries number 118 118 - I was flicking through my phone bill, and noticed I had rang it twice (43 seconds, and 52 seconds), and I was charged nearly £5.00 for each call! I was under the impression that these calls were just 50p each (and have used it a fair bit) It just so happened that I had 5 mins, so checked though the bill - I rang BT to check if it was a mistake, but it wasn't, they said that service is one of their most expensive ones.

So, 118 118 = £5.00 every time you use it!

All the best,

Len :thumbsup:

The boss of 118 118 got a grilling on some news programme last week.  He was given a hard time when he tried to justify the rip off charges, but I can't see anything changing.  Since they broke BT's monopoly for directory enquiries, who incidentally were only charging 40p at the time, they've let sharks like 118 118 in.

So I wasn't wrong in my thinking of the 50p a call, I'm sure that was kind of drummed into us - Clever on their part really (the b*stards!)

Cheers,
