I've got a lad who phones me a lot. It must be 50 times now, so I'm eating into his naira.

I asked him the other day why does he keep disconnecting on me, and he told me he keeps running out of credit for international numbers! That did make me feel sorry for him Very Happy

I've given him the number of some lady who he wants to contact to arrange payment. Her phone number is an expensive 070 Flextel number, but she never picks up. her Flextel number is configured to divert the call if not answered in 10 seconds to another Flextel number. This one is an 0871, which I think is a bit cheaper.

The odd thing is, despite picking it up on the redirected number a couple of times, I've never managed to have any conversation with him. It implies the divert is not working 100% properly.

My question is, if my lad dials a Flextel number, and it gets diverted, does it cost him money, even if the diverted call is not answered? I'm wondering if the mere fact the number gets redirected means he will pay.

He rings me a lot and I usually answer, but not always. It would be nice if I could divert the number to another number, so he always pays, even if I don't answer. But I don't know if that happens with Flextel. Does anyone know?

Can you give me any more tricks I can play with Flextel or similar numbers to increase the cost incurred? I already do the "talk slowly, make him repeat", but are wondering what technical measures I can take.

I'm not keen to pay for a number in any way - that rather defeats my objective of costing him as much as possible, whilst not costing me any money at all.

^^^ FleXtel recently opened an online Forum, where customers may post questions for answer by staff. You could ask there. Just login to your FleXtel account and look for the link. The FleXtel site is not particularly user-friendly, and it can be difficult to find answers to questions.

Thanks, I found the forum, and have joined that forum. But I posted my question soon after you said to do it, but it has still has not been approved by a moderator, so has not appeared. So it appears Flextel service is not great. I would not want to base my business around it.

If you posted on a Friday, be aware that the FleXtel Moderators probably don't work weekends. Expect a response early next week.
