    Question is how am I getting charged for it when it clearly states I am within my minutes. I only use about 80 of my 600 a month. I cannot be paying 12p for the women to state that this number is chargable surely?

    I emailed the muffins at vodafone. Never had this on 02 nor Orange if the number was outside of the package.

    Those numbers are chargeable @20p per minute, but as you say, the cost should be zero if you havent been connected.

    Hope this isnt the shape of things to come! (Though I never dial 0844......... I assume you looked on saynoto0870.co.uk?

    Yes I usually do, I won't ring them from Voda again, going to see if they will give me the money back. See what there really like.

    Seriously how can I connect to it if the womens talking. Stupid.

    I thought my phone arrived earlier when Royal Mail turned up with a delivery for me. Turned out to be a Netgear ADSL modem router I bought from a guy over on AV Forums.

    Hope it wont be too long! (Lots of work being tied in today..... Base for the Log Cabin and new stairs / loft hatch being fitted.) Phone arriving is pure luck! Oooh... a text.... the port will go live by 4th June at 4 pm.

    I am beginning to believe I am really Dyslexic.

    0844 numbers are chargeable even if you haven't used any of your minutes. non-geographical aren't included in the plan. you can also be charged without being connected as most 0844 numbers are to switchboards and the call is connected as soon as it reaches the switchboard even if the end number doesn't answer.
    edit : in your case most networks would ask you to "press 1" to carry on etc but apparently not vodafone
