Phone number for Dabs??

  plankton 12:50 01 Sep 03

I suppose this is a stupid question, but IS there a phone number for Dabs, so that I can ask a person a very simple question? I've tried by e-mail, but it's obviously a bit complicated to read/answer.

P.S. I am NOT having a go at Dabs. (Yet). ;o)

Tried directory enquiries? click here

Thanks, I already phoned, it's an answer machine that cuts you off after telling you to contact them electronically. I have tried e-mail again, asking the question in an even simpler format. ;o)

If there isn't a phone number at the Dabs website, the question you've got to ask is why. It's not a good idea to do business with a firm that deliberately conceals its phone number.

But have you tried DQ? I remember another company who had a similar system to the one you describe but going to directories gave me a "real number" that got a response. Worth a try - doesn't cost (unlike phoning for a number!)

They do explain that they are trying to cut down on the one-to-one, and thereby the costs presumably, by doing ALL their non-corporation work over the net. But I am starting to think like yourself - it is a simple question I want to ask.... :o)

Yes, I got the number from "DQ" - Dabs don't list a number on the web anymore. (it says since last September). Thanks anyway.

Is this the number you tried 0870 429 3000?

You could try increasing the number by one digit at a time to see if you get anyhere that way e.g. 3001, 3002 etc. My thinking is that firms that buy 0870 numbers usually buy a block of them.

Yes it is the number. Do they really? I never knew that, this site is a font of all knowledge.
