      Re: Sky system insurance

      Thank you SPARKEY, I thought that was the case, I have e-mailed sky to confirm{ I am very anti 0870 numbers, especially when you spend a lot of time on hold]. Yes I new about sky cover but I do not usually bother it is all a gamble of course. Thank you for your interest

      Re: Sky system insurance

      Well thanks for that, you don't know an 0800 for easyjet doyou, they charge 10p per minfor everything, I have just had an e-mail back from sky and they confirm the charge as £65 for everything as it used to be. The satallite firm are obviosly telling porkies in their desperation for business. cheers

      Re: Sky system insurance

      I know this one. It should be a free call on most lines now as it is a geographical number, like ringing a mate in another town.

      Easyjet 01582 525422

      No hold message, no queuing - puts you straight through to an agent (even when the 0871 number says that there's a 15 min wait!)

      Re: Sky system insurance

      and this too

      Try numbers after 01582 700000.

      I tried upto 01582 700084. Some were out of service, alot gave a recording saying that the number had been changed. This was an EasyJet message and not the BT one. The new numbers are as follows:

      * Bookings 0905 8210905 65p/min
      * Other enquiries 0871 2442366 10p/min
      * General enquiries/website problems 0905 5607777 £1/m


      36, 48, 50 and 57 were the only ones that answered as "Welcome to EasyJet, press 1 for English...".

      The following are in service:

      25 busy
      30 busy
      32 busy
      33 no answer
      34 employee menu
      37 no answer
      39 busy
      67 no answer
      68 no answer
      74 no answer
      80 no answer
      83 no answer

      After about 60, some are not EasyJet!

      If any of these numbers are any good let us know. If not, you may wish to try more.

      A Google of "easyjet 01582" gives some other numbers. It appears that some start 01582 525, 01582 445 and 01582 7029.

      01582 525001 may work. undecided
