0844 charges ?

Hi everyone.
I'm looking to switch my home phone (evenings & weekend package) service to Plusnet.
I use an 0844 number quite a lot & with BT which works out around 3p a minute.
However, I can't find out how much Plusnet charge for these call types. I've trawled through all the tariff listings on the website & even phoned the Plusnet  helpcentre who couldn't give me a definite answer !
Please can anyone help ?
Much appreciated.

Welcome to the forum
why dont your use http://www.saynoto0870.com and get a number which is free
As for the rest of the Query  it is a mad table to negotiate, I think only Mand on the staff understands it

You need to look here
http://www.productsandservices.bt.com/consumer/consumerProducts/pdf/SpecialisedNos.pdf
note down the "Type of Call" example 0844 688 is g24
Look here
http://www.plus.net/residential/tariffs/homephone.html
and you find that g24 is 5p per minute

Note that there is also a 9.3p call set-up fee, mentioned at the very bottom of the table.

If you're responding to Jim there, note that he did say the 0844 688, g24 number was just an example. If you're responding to me about the call set-up fee, then the code doesn't make any difference – all chargeable calls appear to attract the same 9.3p fee.
