      Finding out 0844 call costs!!

      Hi,

      I make a lot of international calls and use an 0844 override number to make the calls.

      It costs 3p on BT but I got Sky Talk and was looking at the sky website for call charges but the pdf has charge bands...how do I know what charge band the number I am using falls under?

      The number I want to find out the charges for is 08444391515.

      Many Thanks in advance.

      Sagar

      This file has the charge band codes: http://www.sky.com/Assets/PDF/StaticFiles/1212410.pdf

      And this file has the costs for each charge band: http://www.sky.com/Assets/PDF/StaticFiles/1210910.pdf

      The price for a call on Sky Talk to 0844 439 1515 is 6p connection charge plus 3p per minute, the same as it is on BT.

      Well in this case, the call charge is the same regardless of whether its routed through Sky or BT - 6p connection charge plus 3p per minute. The two documents I gave links for should, between the two of them, give the price for any call on Sky Talk.

      Many thanks for the replies!!

      It doesn't make much of a difference apart from the 6p connection charge.

      I think I'll use the 1280 option as the line quality through sky doesn't seem good.

      thanks

      From Sky.com today:

      quote:

      Call charges - UK
      0844 numbers: 9.05p connection + 4.9p per minute from BT Unlimited Weekend Plan (correct as at November 2009). Calls to Sky 0844 numbers at no extra charge for Sky Talk customers during their inclusive call periods. Charges for calls from mobile phones and other networks may vary. Please note that calls may be monitored or recorded for training purposes.

      >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      Not good, 0844 simply transfers to their landline system that could be reached for, say, 4p connect + zero p/min from 18185.com

      The 0844 499 range is g6 rate and, assuming Sky charges the same as BT (which they used to), the charge is connection + 5p/minute.

      Re: Finding out 0844 call costs!!

      We have sky TV and the unlimited BB package.
      I am considering taking the phone package but the call charges to India is huge.
      Currently we are with BT and use 0844 200 1010 which costs .5p per minute plus connection charge.
      Does any one know what the charges will be if we switch to Sky and use the same number on Sky phone line?
