Thought I'd share a favourite site of mine...http://www.saynoto0870.com/search.php
You can find so many alternative numbers to 0870 - often you'll find a freephone number for a company too!
"Many people don't realise that there are many phone providers offering cheaper calls to standard telephone numbers (those beginning with 01 or 02), which don't apply to 0845, 0870 or 0871 telephone numbers."
I've used this site a hundred times - for one thing, my credit card companies all gave me their 0870 numbers but they do have an 01 (etc) listing too and some have freephone numbers (grrr)... so now I call them as often as I want without worrying about the bill :)
Two fingers to companies using 0870!!! :lol: :lol:
