Bloody stupid if you ask me, breaking numbers up differently according to where you are.
I reopened the poll last Friday, see HERE.Didn't see that this Poll had closed sorry , Still goes to show little changes still can't get a response from the support dept via email, why do they have an email contact if they are not going to support their Customer by this Method ?? I see the other view is that you might call their premium line so they can make money out of the situation. Perhaps the Poll Should be resurrected - just a suggestion.
EP has probably answered most of them, apart from getting the formatting wrong - "020x" should be "020 x".Perhaps you could educate or remind us, well me in particular. A shift to the Hummy Arms perhaps?
Absolutely!So, from a London landline, you only need to dial 8326 6000, i.e. you can drop the 020?
A brief history of London Phone codes :-
01 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 5 Dec. 1958 (Automatic Trunk Calls started)
071 + 081 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . May 1990
0171 + 0181 . . . . . . . . . . . . 16 April 1995 (Phone-One-Day)
0207 + 0208 . . . . . . . . . . 22 April 2000 (Big Number Change)
0207 + 0208 + 0203 . . . . 2005
So 0208 was part of the 'Big Number Change' (12 Years ago), rather than Phone-One-Day (17 years ago)
There is also an argument that it should read 020 8326 6000 where '0' = Trunk code, '20' 2 digit area code for London + 8 digit number (part of Big Phone Number Change)
I'm at a loss of when they do reply to emails and when they don't. I send them an email every now and again about individual outstanding bugs that impact me to give them a chance to have their say in case I ever want to have a moan online. I try to make my emails brief, to the (single) point and easy to understand while having sufficient detail but I am still baffled as to why some are replied to and others are not.Email has never got much response. We have had excellent reports of the telephone service, however inconvenient it is to actually speak to somebody.
