Phoning 08 numbers from mobiles is especially expensive so, could you provide a service whereby the 08 number is sent by text to a number you provide and the alternative geograhical number is sent back by return text? You could pay for the service from a small charges levied on the text number.

The issue of access via mobiles has been brought up before. To this end, we hope to implement a mobile version of the database search engine.

See other threads in the Site Related section such as "I-Phone App".

Have a look at:
http://www.google.com/gwt/n
on your phone.

Enter the URL:
http://www.saynoto0870.com/search.php
and tick "No Images".

Then bookmark the resulting page. This uses Google to convert the site to WML or XML, according to your phone's capabilities. Many phones allow mobile web browsing now, but this gives a smaller (and cheaper if you pay per kB) version of the page, and should work on older phones.

Being that this web page is availlable to forum members only and there may be forum members that are not genuine ?? Can i state that this forum and the works of sayno have helped me save a hell of a lot of money only being a mobile phone family with no land line.. Good on yer !!! But being open to the 5th columnist of the companies that we are trying to make availlable reasonable cost phone calls to the masses. do you not think that by setting up a private message group that confirms the number is genuine and availlable is going to do more good than just adding numbers to the server as and when a poster submits them ?? There are eyes watching us ???

An API might be useful...

As a new member it would be really useful to have these posts listed in reverse chronological order - ie starting with the most recent.

Also, is it possible to delete or archive any polls that have a past cut-off date?  

Thank you Smiley

Well the default order of most internet forums is oldest post first and newest last.  The same order that a book is written in!

Some forums let you alter the post order to have newest first for the few of you out there with unusual brain structures who for some reason find this preferable.  But this forum isn't one of them as it uses the more limited YaBB forum software.

Again you arrive in the forum and then seem to think the whole place should apparently immediately be changed just for your benefit?

How about setting up a Facebook account for the website. I think this would help.

Hello,
I use iGoogle as my homepage on my PC , this allows me to add gadgets such as currency converters, money saving expert tips and driving directions to name just a few - it's just the post at the top of the page talks about mobile access.

Are there any plans to make a Say no to 0870 gadget?

thanks

I like the 3D logo from SkyPaulusPlus.

There have been many suggestions and I'm not entirely convinced that they are best all moved to one thread, as DaveM has done.

37monkey, I'm not familiar with iGoogle, what does it do?

http://www.google.co.uk/ig


I too would like to see a way of accessing the database on mobile phones. This has long been talked about and there have been offers of help, but site admin has yet to do anything.

Just one suggestion here. Fix up the format of listed numbers to comply with the Ofcom recommended way of writing them.

I put the detailed stuff in a separate thread:   http://www.saynoto0870.com/cgi-bin/forum/YaBB.cgi?num=1244293980 ;   Smiley

One side benefit: maybe less repetition of the same number in multiple formats  (e.g. 023 8005 1003  and 0238 0051003 and 02380 051003) being submitted.

I was using my laptop today and I couldn't see any characters inside the blue verification box.  Is there a problem with some graphic cards?

I couldn't add an alternative number and I couldn't report the fault as they both needed me to confirm the verification number that I couldn't see Angry.

Dear Administrator of SayNoTo0870

My son recently sent me this message and I wonder if you would like to utilise the information in it and set up the same for your visitors by using voipfone?


I'm sure you are aware that you can't call an 0800 free-phone number for free using your mobile. We think that's wrong, so we thought about it for a while and have come up with a crafty way of making these calls for free, as they were originally designed to be.

Is it really totally free?

Yes - if you have a contract mobile package with included minutes to UK geographic numbers like 01 and 02. (Even if you use a Pay-as-you-go mobile it's normally cheaper than calling the 0800 directly; but you need to check with your provider.)

How does it work?

1. Dial our access number 029 2000 0800 (add it to your address book)

2. When we answer, just enter the 0800 number you want to call and wait to be connected.


That's it.


How can you do it for free?

---------------------------

We get a tiny fraction of a penny for the call from the network operator, not enough to matter but enough to cover our costs. But we mostly do it simply because we can, because it's quite cool and because we think mobile phone pricing is a rip-off.


You'll find more mobile phone workaround tricks here: http://www.voipfone.co.uk/FP_Voipfone_For_Mobile_Customers.php


This works for 0808 and 0500 free-phone numbers too.

----------------------------------------------------

ps You don't need to be a Voipfone customer to use this trick, tell your friends; send them this email!


PPS. Perhaps SayNoTo0870 would like to set up their own link for their visitors to use.

Perhaps we can improve SayNoTo0870 by having a small ads section in which providers of telecoms services can place advertisements for a modest fee.

All providers offer a valuable service to their customers and earn a living in the process. Clearly there is a good living to be made out of dial-through numbers. There is no reason why providers of this service should not incur marketing costs like any other. The indirect means by which the service is paid for does not make it fundamentally different from others.

I haven't been able to find this subject elsewhere and couldn't see how to start a new topic so I'll post here.

Like many BT customers, I jumped ship as soon as there was a viable alternative and have been a business and personal customer with Nynex/Cable & Wireless/NTL/Virgin ever since.  They're far from perfect, but they'd have a long way to go to beat BT's dire customer service.

Also, like many customers, I was completely unaware that not all 08.. numbers are charged at the 'local rate' as commonly understood (and widely marketed).  That's when I started using this very useful site.  Now, whenever I have to ring an 08.. number, I go to this site first, but I'm still unclear which numbers I actually need to do this for.  I've made three attempts to get clarification on this from Virgin, but they haven't been much help.  They've sent me a full tariff that's pages long or given detailed charging rates that still leave me unclear as to how to act.  What I need is just a simple list I can stick on my wall with the common 08.. prefixes and a simple Yes/No or tick/cross next to each one so I know which ones I need to get alternatives for and which ones I don't.

This would be a valuable item to have on your home page or, better still, on the 'SEARCH TO FIND AN ALTERNATIVE NUMBER' page.  Given that this site is of more interest to non-BT customers, I'd have thought this would be a particularly valuable addition.

Have I missed this somewhere else?

Have I posted in the right place?

Comments from a moderator/admin would be most welcome.
