      Caller Display and BT Rental

      In the old days I believe that you could dial 1280 and make some calls via BT in order to benefit from free caller display. That was phased ou some time ago and it is difficult to now dial out via BT. But, I just noticed on my BT bill that there was one charge for connecting a call from Call Minder. It is described as 1471 fee and was for 17p. My question is, if I used this facilty six times in a Quarter, would the resulting 1.02 call charges be considered by BT as the minimum qualifying number required for free Caller Display when signed up to Privacy at Home?

      I tried that a couple of years ago. I was told when I phoned BT that this was 'a fee' and not 'a chargeable call' and did not count towards free CLID. I tried it anyway and still had to pay the monthly charge.
