I was charged over £17 for a 6 minute 3 second call!!! There was no message to tell me about their exhorbitant charges beforehand or I would have cancelled the call. This kind of charging is a scandal. How do these companies get away with it? Will never use them again… Read Full Review

I feel sorry that I have to make this complain. It is just unbearable. I received my Vodafone bill this morning on which says my monthly cost is 29 pounds! Exclude the VAT(which I don not know before I have to pay), I have had 16 pounds spent on the call with 118888 for 6 min. I could not recall when I made such a dial. I just could not understand why they do not remind the customer about the charge. No wonder, 118888 will be regarded as a big cheat by customers. I even start to think if… Read Full Review

Why do the government allow rip off merchants like this company steal money from peoples pockets ??
I dialled their number by accident and for the 9 seconds i was connected to the number i was charged the princely sum of £1.70 !!
Whats the betting that the boss of this greedy company drives a very flash car and lives in a house that takes days to walk round !
SHAME ON YOU !! I ACTUALLY GIVE YOU NO STARS

I called last week and was given the wrong number - not even in the same country. Called back to complain (stupidly) and ask for the call cost to be credited back to me and to get the correct number. After 2 mins of incompetence was eventually given the correct number - total cost £5.00. Complete scandal. Should not be allowed to operate! Tried to rate service as zero but had to give it 1 to register… Read Full Review

On my latest phone bill I've been charge £3.99 for a 3min 36 sec phone call to 118888. A total RIP OFF. The old 192 service was so much better value. I thought opening up the market and introducing comeptition was supposed to drive up service and drive down prices. What a con trick… Read Full Review

118888 staff are both friendly and helpful and actually sound like they enjoy their jobs!
They have always given me the right number first time and I don't use anyone else now.
Not the cheapest, but definitely the best value for money… Read Full Review
