Currently, the only phone I have is my iPhone, which is on Vodafone Red Essentials.

I've recently become part of a long-term project that makes use of the Spark audio conferencing service, 083-033. This is the number where it's free to the caller, and the organisation pays.

I've already been able to establish that Vodafone considers this a special number, so unlimited minutes don't apply here.

Can anyone tell me:

1. Do Spark and Skinny mobile let you call this number as part of an unlimited minute package?

and

2. If I were to get a 2Talk number with their local $9.95 service, would this be considered a local/free call?

Thanks.

I believe it costs the company significantly more if you call from a mobile. Don't know how much, but we were asked not to do it.

I have no answers to your questions.

Hi there,

We class 083033 as a special number also, but i understand 0800 638 822 should let you join without per minute charges at your end :)

That number seems to work from my Auckland line, but not my Dunedin one.

I've tested this from my Vodafone mobile, and it does work.

It works from my Spark mobile, but if I call from my Dunedin landline I get "The number you have called is not available from your location".
