Can't make 0844 call

Can anyone help with why I can't make 0844 telephone number calls? I'm new to GiffGaff -is it something that specifically needs to be set up? The number is my GP, and this was an emergency! Glad I still have a landline!

Thanks!

Hi there.
Have you also got credit,as those numbers are not part of any goodybag allowance.

Hi

You will need airtime credit to call this number. In my opinion it is wrong that a GP surgery use such a number.
If my post helped you why not accept as solution or give it a kudo!

Do you have credit balance ?? Calls to 0844 are not within the goodybag and are charged from your credit balance

Re: Can't make 0844 call

0844/0870/0845,etc. numbers are not included in goodybags you need credit to call them,@12p per min.

 

Try this number if you have a goodybag.

 

0333 543 8954 as soon as the call is answered dial in your 0844 number,the call will use your goodybag minutes.

Re: Can't make 0844 call

Hello and welcome to giffgaff.

Calls to 0844 numbers (non-geographical) cost more than normal calls - 12p a minute. You will need credit to call them as they won't be included in any goodybag allowance.

Have a look at the tarrif chart here for more information on non-geographical call charges: http://giffgaff.com/index/pricing
