Note: 188071 is a typo. The correct number may be 118071 or it may be 118807. Another list has an additional number, 118807, that does not appear here. Finally, 118951 appears twice in the list.

Without the fix, around 80 DQ numbers are advertised as costing £2 per minute but actually cost £4 per minute.

It seems you've been through the pricing with a finetooth comb, but I'm only just giving them kudos as I wasn't aware of a lot of them... Good luck with them all Smiley Happy

Huge thanks to Ian for proposing and implementing this Idea - fantastic contribution.

Further related work:

  • Confirm whether the call price for 118071 and 118807 is £2 or £4 per minute, and therefore whether there are 79, 80 or 81 DQ numbers charged at £4 per minute.
  • Remove duplicate entries, sort into numerical order, and update the lists accordingly.
  • Fix the remainder of the pricing issues listed here.
