I used to know a very useful 0800 number for Telecom Customer Service. It went right thru to the people at 123 and was always answered immeadiately without the maze of options & recorded announcemnets about irrelavant matters you must listen to when you call 123.

The 0800 number was very useful for calling from my 021 cell phone. Calling 123 from a 021 mobile costs. You don't want to be paying peek rates while you wait thru their maze of announcmments, with 6 ot 7 options in each list and average 5 minute wait on hold to get answered.

Anyway does anyone know what this number is? I can't remember. I used to have it stored in my cell phone memory, but when my phone was stolen earlier this year my address book was gone to.

Dont spread that too much????? You would think that 0800 TELECOM would be a bit obvious for a number thats not meant to be spread????????
