      Will be taking this of the 'allowed' list.

      [QUOTE=Heinz;99442]I'd reduce that fourth one by one digit - to 1280080 - which will allow freephone 0800 and 0808 calls (via BT). You might want to add 12800500 too - there are still some old 0500 freephone numbers in use.

      Hi everybody,

      Finally, my Commtel Internet & Phone guard has come today!! I got two of them for 4.99 including p&p from Ebay. This product is very, very easy to install and very easy to use as well. Even, it allows me to programme exactly the way I always had in mind to be. Even it works perfectly with my Sky Broadband Max connection as it has no affect on the modem connection to the phone line. In my opinion, this product is the best, highly recommended, two thumbs up from me for the people in the company who designed this product,

      I have found out that 0500, 0800 or 0808 numbers are completely free phone numbers on Sky Talk Unlimited, so that I don't need to programme my Commtel with BT 1280 code such as 1280080 anymore.

      Because I tried with both 0800 and 1280080 (unless I programmed it wrong), but it doesn't work because when I tried to view my Sky bill using the Interactive menu from both my Sky+ and standard Sky boxes, its gives me error message, and I can't view the Sky Bill, then I realised what Heinz mentioned to me, so I used both 080 & 0500 (without BT 1280 override code) codes into my Commtel, fortunately, it worked perfectly this time. So I have changed the default factory PIN code and programmed in my 'Allowed list' with the following:

      01, 02, 001, 0061, 0033, 0049, 00353, 0039, 0034, 0064, 080, 0500 & 128002.

      That way, everybody in my house have a option either call Geographical including national, local, freephone numbers, 10 international landlines calls listed on Sky Talk Umlimited web site except USA & Canada both mobile & landline or buy any phone card using any 0207 or 0208 numbers back of the phone card or use a pay phone to make Non-Geographic or Premium rate numbers e.g 08, 09 or 118-118 and the same for mobile calls & other international calls which are not listed on Sky Talk Unlimited.

      I'm very happy now, no need to worry about paying huge phone bills for the calls I didn't even made in the first place.

      I think they used either 0808 or 0500 for the freephone rate when viewing the sky bill from the Sky box Interactive menu, but not 0800 number. Try it on your Commtel phone guard and see what happens when trying to view the Sky bill from the sky box Interactive menu.

      Definitely these freephone calls are completely free on Sky Talk Unlimited, they won't charge you for calling these free phone numbers, its mention "No fee calls" in page 2 from Sky Talk Specialised Phone Numbers (Adobe PDF) and I make these calls before and always viewing my Sky Bills from my Sky+ box Interactive menu (I also put both PIN for spend over 0.00 & Interactive online PIN restriction on by the way), and these numbers are not mention in any of my Sky bills at all.

      Thanks you everybody in this forum for all your help, mostly I give all the credit to Heinz!!
