1-900 or 1-976 calls connect you to companies that provide a service (e.g., psychic lines, adult chats, contests, etc.). These calls are billable to your account if they are made from your line, and the cost can range from $1 to $15 per minute, or more.
Calls to toll-free numbers, which use the area codes 800, 888, 866, 877, etc., are paid for by the company you speak to.
You can ask Bell to put a block on your line so that 1-900 and 1-976 calls can’t be made from your telephone. Call us at 1 866 310-BELL (2355) for more information.
Note: There is a one-time charge of $10 to activate this service.
