With all the changes to the site recently, I have now republished a new page detailing the cost of calling 1890, 1850 and 0818 numbers from as many phone companies as we could find.
The Call Costs page in the main menu bar now shows the real costs of calling these numbers – particularly if your phone package has inclusive minutes.
Calls to 1850, 1890 and 0818 are not deducted from inclusive minutes on any phone minute packages provided by Irish telecoms companies (except for one).
This shows how beneficial it is that you are able to use geographical telephone numbers instead – it saves you money if you have an inclusive minutes package with your phone provider.
So, what can we do?
- The ideal thing we should be demanding is that our phone providers include these 1890, 1850 and 0818 numbers in their inclusive minutes packages.
- Failing that, we should share any geographical alternative phone numbers that we know of with everyone else to allow us all save money on these calls.
And that’s what the SayNoTo1890.com website is for. If you know of any geographical alternative phone numbers that can be used instead of 1890, 1850 or 0818 numbers, e-mail us and we’ll share them with everyone else.
