Re: 0800 & 0808 numbers

The tarrif guide does not state that 0808 numbers are free, only 0800 numbers.

 

Would Sky please clarify this and include it in their future tarrif guides?

Re: 0800 & 0808 numbers

Only 0800 number is a free phone number. You can call to this number without wasting any money. This tariff is just reverse of any other plan. In this instead of caller, receiver has to pay for the calls.

The specialised numbers guide says 0808 are in "no charge" band but you mentioned it is chargeable?

Hi fido004,

 

I think Tricia07 has got it wrong here, sorry for any confusion about this, afterall we are only human.

 

The tariff guide is correct and 0808 numbers are free from Sky.

Hi sexytoosh, 

 

Thank you for taking the time to post & sorry for the delay in replying. 


We don't have an 0800 number we can supply you with, however if you're a Sky Talk Customer you can call us free by dialling 150.

Conflicting views on this. Can I get a definitive answer whether or not 0808 calls are free on sky talk?

Re: 0800 & 0808 numbers

Just to clarify in case anyone else picks up on this...

 

0800 numbers are free at ALL times with Sky as you will know...

 

0808 are NOT chargeable by Sky... HOWEVER, the comany you make the call TO MAY charge a tariff. You need to check the small print on that company's site or terms and conditions. Tariffs may vary so you need to be aware of those who charge say 25p per minute or whatever.


So Sky DO NOT charge... it will be the number you dial that belongs to a company who MAY charge. So some will be free and others not.

 

There you go... that's from a Sky rep who knows his job and I confirmed the info elsewhere.

 

Hope this helps.
