Due to the complex nature of some queries, these may take a little longer to resolve. If you are not happy with the response you receive you may ask for the matter to be referred to a supervisor for further investigation.

    In the rare event we are unable to resolve your problem we will write to you informing you of the position. This is sometimes called the 'deadlock' letter. When you receive this letter and your annual bill is less than £5000, you have the right to refer your case to the Ombudsman. The contact details can be found at in section 11 of this code. The Ombudsman will want to ensure that you have followed this process through before contacting them.

  36. Dispute Resolution

It is run by the Office of the Telecommunications Ombudsman, Otelo for short. Otelo's job is to investigate complaints fairly, listen to both sides of the story and look at the facts. If the Ombudsman decides your complaint was justified inCloudOne will honour this decision and put things right for you. To find out how the service works and what it covers, please ask for a copy of Otelo's complaints booklet 'Two sides to every story' by phoning 0845 050 1614. The scheme provides a straightforward alternative to legal action. If you receive the deadlock letter as described above, you must decide within 6 months if you wish to refer the issue to the Ombudsman. An application to the Ombudsman does not relieve you from any obligation you may have to pay any amounts not in dispute. The Ombudsman can provide you with further details and you will also find information on Otelo's website. Contact details are shown in Section 13 of this Code.

  52. Premium Rate Services
  53. ICSTIS - the premium rate services regulator. ICSTIS is the industry-funded regulatory body for all premium rate charged telecommunications services. They regulate premium rate services in their entirety - their content, promotion and overall operation - through the ICSTIS code of practice. ICSTIS's role is to prevent consumer harm. ICSTIS investigates complaints about the promotion and operation of services which involve the use of a telephone connection via a premium rate number. This includes services available on a variety of mediums such as voice (telephone), fax, Internet, mobile phone SMS and interactive TV. The potential content of these services is virtually endless. ICSTIS regulates any service/promotion that is operating on one of the following number ranges: numbers beginning with 090 or 091; directory enquiry (DQ) services operating on numbers beginning with 118; and reverse-billed SMS (you are charged for the receipt of messages) containing content operating on shortcodes. Shortcodes have 4 or 5 digits and start with either 8, 6 or 2. ICSTIS has the power to fine companies and bar access to services if their code of practice is breached. ICSTIS can also bar the individual(s) behind a company from running any other premium rate services under any company name on any telephone network for a defined period. ICSTIS can deal with lesser problems by issuing formal reprimands or ordering companies to come to us for prior approval. Their service is free to consumers and fully independent.

  54. How to complain to ICSTIS

There are a variety of ways to submit your complaint but before you do, we recommend that you visit their online number checking facility for instant information about the number in question. After that, please use one of the following methods: if you have a hard copy of the promotion in question (i.e. a page from a magazine), please supply your complaint in writing with a copy of the promotion to: ICSTIS, FREEPOST WC5468, London, SE1 2BR by using their online complaint form by calling their free helpline on 0800 500 212 between the hours of 8.00am and 8.00pm, Monday to Friday.

  56. Information about our PRS tariffs
  57. For up-to-date information about the tariffs for calling PRS number from inCloudOne's network please contact customer services.

  58. Rogue Internet or Trojan diallers
  59. There is currently a scam that infects computers with a dial-up Internet connection. It changes the way your computer connects to the Internet and is difficult to detect.
    The scam can occur when you are browsing a compliant and proper Internet services website often with premium rate content. Examples of websites that have available premium rate content to download to your computer include music, films and adult material. When you access one of these sites a message should appear asking you to install software in order to download material from the website at an explained addition cost. When you install this software, your normal dialler will be temporarily replaced to pay for the content that you have just requested with a new dialler configuration.

  60. What is a Trojan?
  61. A Trojan is a programme that infects your computer and allows a hacker to run hidden tasks without your knowledge or consent. The latest Trojan's can re-configure your dial up connection and charge you at a Premium or International call rate when you access the Internet and click on a seemingly harmless pop up or link. The next time you dial up to connect to the Internet you will be charged at a Premium rate or International call rate. That's the scam.

  62. Disputes regarding PRS numbers on your phone bill
  63. The Office of the Telecommunications Ombudsman (Otelo) of which we are a member is able to investigate if you have a complaint that we cannot resolve regarding calls to PRS number appearing on your phone bill. Furthermore, ICSTIS may order a PRS service provider to pay you a refund in the case they have completed an investigation and where it imposes redress as a sanction. If it can be shown that your phone has been used without your permission to call certain types of premium rate service (i.e. live and recorded chat, and live tarot services), ICSTIS may also be able to help you obtain compensation from the PRS service provider. ICSTIS will also be able to help you identify the service provider who provides the service behind the PRS number on your phone bill. Please visit their website at

  64. Number Translation Services
  65. Our up-to-date charges for calls to number translation services (numbers starting with 05 or 08) are available from our customer service team on 0845 389 999. Our stated charges for calls to number translation services will include variations by time of day, for example, whether the call is made during the day, evening or weekend.
