      The 18185 prefix diverts calls away from Sky so you pay them nothing for such calls.
      Many thanks H

      Hi - in relation to the above quote: I've got Sky Talk Unlimited and Sky Line rental. I still use the 18185 prefix on my landline to call international mobiles and it does work by billing calls via 18185 account. I've checked my last two Sky phone bills, just to be sure, and it definately working. Is it likely that this will stop working for me. I guess it is not really much of a problem as I can use the "020 7" access number as part of my call package, but 18185 is handy. Would be interested to know if anyone could shed any light as I though 18185 would stop working once I switched my line rental away from BT.

      BT adds 0845 & 0870 numbers to inclusive calls.

      I was wrong there - 'free' (inclusive) 0845 & 0870 calls applies to all BT's calls packages, including their 'lowest package', the Unlimited Weekend Plan (on which 0845 & 0870 calls of up to 60 minutes each join 01, 02 and 03 calls as included in the package at weekends).

      No, they're not.

      Nor are 0843, 0871, 0872 or 0873 numbers.
