Weekend tariff

Hello,
I am on the Weekend phone tariff.
I wanted to ask.....how much would it cost me to call someone on a weekend?
I'm just confused about the tariff as I'm not sure if it's free all weekend or only free to certain numbers....etc.
Many thanks.

Hey Spooky,
Apologies for not counting the o's in your username.  Grin
This probably could explain it better than I can. Though let me know if that doesn't clarify well enough.

Re: Weekend tariff

Thanks you two  Grin and Matty....it's fine, you can put as many 'O's' to my nickname if you wish to  Cheesy
I did read that but am still confused by the "inclusive" part!
I see that it's similar to what BT does......after 60 mins, hang up and redial again for another free hour of call?
Many thanks!

Re: Weekend tariff

Hello there Spooooky (number of o's counted because I'm pedantic like that ;))
I'll try to clarify the Weekend plan for you as best as I can.
You can make free calls to UK landlines (any number beginning 01, 02 or 03) at anytime on Saturdays or Sundays, as long as each call doesn't last longer than 60 minutes. As you've rightly pointed out, it's BT's "hang up and redial" system. You can also call 0845 and 0870 numbers during this time, again, so long as the calls are no longer than 60 minutes.
If you know someone on Plusnet, you can call them free at anytime (60 minute rule still applies here) and you can call Plusnet support free forever and no matter how long you're talking to us, you won't be charged.
Hope this clears everything up Cheesy

Do I get any included/free calls?
Inclusive calls are for numbers starting 01, 02 and 03, 0845 and 0870 (some exceptions apply).
These calls are inclusive:
    24/7 with Anytime
    Between 7pm and 7am weekdays and all weekend with Evening & Weekends
    All weekend on Weekends
Note: Calls become chargeable after 60 minutes, redial to avoid call charges.
