First post!! I hope you find this helpful, I have been getting fed up being on hold or working my way through endless menu's on the phone to get help or advice from companies when I am paying for the call. A friend told me about this site and it is quite useful.
This website has a search feature to give alternative phone numbers to those starting 0870....
The site lists many well known companies, and their equivalent geographical numbers.
Alternatives listed for 0800, 0808, 0844, 0845, 0870 and 0871 numbers.
The SAYNOTO0870.COM web site has been featured on BBC's Working Lunch TV programme, BBC Radio 2 (Jeremy Vine Show), BBC Radio Norfolk, and also appeared in many newspapers & publications, including The Guardian, Which Magazine, Readers Digest, and many morehttp://www.saynoto0870.com/search.php
