      0845 calls with Sky Talk

      I'm currently on Sky Talk Unlimited but still pay BT for my line rental.

      Good to see that Sky Talk have followed BT and offer inclusive calls to 0870 numbers. I have made a few calls to 0845 recently (no alternate number on saynoto0870) for which Sky charge a substantial sum.

      I'm on the Unlimited Weekend Plan with BT, where I get inclusive 0845 calls at weekends. Is there still a way of routeing calls from Sky Talk to BT, so that I can make inclusive 0845 calls at weekends with BT?

      If not, then is it worth me switching my line rental from BT to Sky, seeing as I can't even utilise my BT package anyway?

      It would be great if Sky could also include 0845 calls, just as BT do.

      Thanks. Does the 1280 prefix still work? I thought it had been discontinued.

      I kept it as a backup in case I ever needed to return my call package to BT from Sky. But BT say I need to pay an additional 4.95 if I wanted inclusive international calls, which I get inclusive with Sky. So, I simply want to route my 0845 calls to my BT package for them to be inclusive rather than let Sky charge me for them.

      I spoke with Sky Talk a short while ago who were not sure if I could route calls to BT (e.g. via 1280) but the BT lady in India said 1280 was not valid.

      Has anybody successfully routed their Sky Talk calls to BT recently?

      Sky do not allow use of 1280.

      Please see here

      BT.COM | Support & Advice

      this applies to Sky Line Rental and Sky Talk with BT line rental. It is the package that Sky have paid BT for.

      The CPS package allows dialling prefix codes.
      The WAC package does not allow it. This Wholesale Access Calls package is the one Sky use.

      0845 and 0870 calls are only free with BT if you are taking there unlimited or unlimited evening and weekend packages, but you are not you have a Sky talk package, so even if you managed to route the calls through BT then BT would still charge you for them.

      The BT line rental is the Unlimited Weekend package.


      TO dsldude. Are you sure you are getting calls on your 1899 bill. The way it works is Sky just disregards the codes at the beginning. You still get your call through but it is billed by Sky. There is no "Please redial this code is no longer accepted".
