Would a 1-800 number work from abroad?

TA needs moderated forums. This place is a great global resource, but the amount of spam, occassional rudeness in replies and repetitive threads are both frustrating and unhelpful. (I'm writing in general btw, and not suggesting that you or anyone in particular is rude or unhelpful). ;)

elsiekate, 1-800 numbers are only toll free when called from within the US or Canada. From anywhere else it's the cost of an international call from that country to a regular US number.

Thanks blagger, I knew they were toll free in the US but I wasn't even sure you that they could be called from abroad.

I think TA would disconnect them within a day, or conveniently not be answering on occasions like this. lol.

Whilst they are only toll-free in the US, there are plenty of online programs that you can ring from. I use skype and rang so many places to book and ask questions, it didn't cost me a cent.

if you want a moderated forum - pay for it.

www.lasvegasadvisor.com THE BEST forums on LV on the paid side - topics are moderated, no spam, etc. easy to use

TA is free - "they" do the best they can, it is the world wide web - therefore open to the entire world. For a free forum TA does a good job - they can not and should not monitor 24/7. this not anyone's personal forum, a chat room or a "club". If you don't like the TA forum do not use them. simple.

you get what you pay for
