Just been checking my calls on my bt phone bill and I have unlimited free calls day and night for a fiver a month to all numbers starting 01 02 and 0845, anyway I have used 1471 a lot then pressed 3 to return the call, thinking this was free to use, only to find out it cost 12.2pence per time I use it, just letting people know incase they also thought it was free.

I think its free to listen to the number that called, but charge to call them back using "3"
#3

their taking advantage of the fact that most of us cba to dial the whole number again and are in a habbit of using the '3' button.

Get a phone with caller display and use the callback feature of that.
BT warns you of the charge "to return the call using BT press 3 there is usually a charge for this service".

surely this is free and the charge is actually for the call to the number mentioned in the 1471

It is included free on some call packages I believe, but definitely not on the basic.
