Found 31st Mar 2010
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 it says you will be charged before you use it right?
I think its free to listen to the number that called, but charge to call them back using "3"

This ^^
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
