Could I still use 18185 for making calls if I move my phone line over from BT to sky?

Hi iNut,   Please don't shoot the messenger, as I've look...

Hi iNut,

 

Please don't shoot the messenger, as I've looked into the 18185 service & can tell you that the service isn't compatible with our service & you would be charged for using this.

 

If there is anything else I can help with though, please come back onto our Forum.

There seems to be some confusion over this since the 1818...

There seems to be some confusion over this since the 18185 carrier pre select can also be used by dialling a longer form number with an 0808 prefix. In skys special number tarriff this prefix is listed as free to call and yet i see people on here saying its chargeable. Can we have some clarification please?

OK so I will keep my line with BT then:
What I have is my Line rented from BT and my calls are via ‘Sky Talk Freetime’ and I am able to use 18185 to get free calls (5p connection charge) to UK fixed numbers 24/7 However I believe if your line is with Sky you could use the Freephone No. 0808 1 703 703 to connect to 18185 however your calls would be charged by 18185 at 1ppm for UK fixed geographical numbers instead of free.
