How do I make a call?
It is very easy to use 1899. Once you have registered your telephone number and payment details you can start using 1899 immediately.
From any BT landline:
Just dial the 1899 Indirect Access code before each call to benefit from our low price tariffs. For example, to call the USA you first dial 1899, (do not pause) then the country code 001, followed by the subscriber number i.e. 1899 001 818 456 4567. Do not wait for a voiceprompt to enter the telephone number; just enter the complete telephone number immediately after dialling 1899.
From non-BT landlines:
Dial 0808 1 708 708, wait for the voiceprompt and enter the follow-on telephone number. For example: 0808 1 708 708 -wait for voiceprompt- 001 818 456 4567.
Dial 020 81 804 804, wait for the voiceprompt and enter the follow-on telephone number. After dialling the follow-on telephone number do NOT press the green "send" button on your mobile again otherwise the call may be carried by your mobile operator!
* 020 calls from mobiles may come out your inclusive free minutes or your mobile operator may charge separately for calls to 020 numbers depending on your operator and tariff plan; please check with your mobile operator for correct rates.
Please note that when you call a local number you should still dial the complete area code and subscriber number i.e. if you are in Manchester and would like to make a call inside Manchester: 1899 0161 603 6300 or 0808 1 708 708 -voiceprompt- 0161 603 6300.
