If you dial 1280 before the number it'll route the call via BT, so you'll


what you'll be paying. Might be worth phoning talktalk to see if they're any
cheaper, although indirect access telcos tend to be about the same or even


expensive than BT for 08xx numbers.

TalkTalk have a "guarantee" that they'll never be more expensive than the
equivalent BT tariff... Though whether that extends to 0871...

It doesn't apply to 0845 - TalkTalk are more expensive than BT for 0845. I think
the "guarantee" applies to all numbers except those which are cheaper on BT...

What a useful guarantee! Not
