A Collect Call is an international reverse charge call. It is paid for by the person receiving the call rather than the one making it. This Part contains charges for Collect calls from overseas to BT lines in the UK.
A Collect Call can be made through the local overseas operator, or, where it is available, via BT Direct. Collect Calls from the Republic of Ireland to Northern Ireland are charged as Inland Reverse Charge calls, which are listed in Section 39
Collect Calls can be made to any ordinary line in the United Kingdom, but not to mobile, pager, Freefone, number translation service numbers (such as 0800, 0845 and 0870),or payphone numbers.
