Calling Northern Ireland landlines

When calling Northern Ireland landlines you can use the normal UK +44 prefix or you can use the 048 prefix described here:


A call to NI using +44 is charged as an international call at 50c per minute.


Calls to NI using 048 are covered by your membership or add-on bundled landline calls allowance.


So if you're calling an NI landline it makes sense to use 048 rather than +44.


Refer to the wikipedia link above for instructions on how to use the 048 prefix (basically you replace the 028 prefix in an NI landline with 048).
