The return message you receive will cost £5 (inclusive of 20% VAT) from o2, Vodafone, EE, Orange, T Mobile and 3G billed to the account holder for that line. Always make sure you have the bill payer's permission before you use this service. We will credit you with calling credit (as per our tariff) and issue a PIN to that value with a UK geographic landline telephone number to access the service. Please note that all PINs and credit will expire 60 days from date of original purchase.

Calls to the UK geographical landline number (0161 328 2820) will be charged as per your mobile network price plan to a UK geographical landline, or may be part of your monthly inclusive minutes allowance. Please check with your service provider to confirm this.
