This number is actually part of a useful service offered from BT. Text message(sms) are sent to your BT landline with this service and uses an automated voice to read out the message for you. If you don't liek this service it's the fault of the person texting you, not BT. But, you can disable the service as instructed in the previous comment if you want to. Just use a landline to do it.

It was an automated message from BT informing me that I had a text message ready for me from a mobile phone. Not expecting any message from anyone. I will assume it's a error text someone has made to my landline.

This is BT calling with a message about a text message that was sent to me and was offering a way to listen to it. This is a cool service offered by BT that lets people text your home phone line with no mobile. So you anyone can send texts to anyone. You can stop this service if you really want to. Calling the number will give you the option with option 5.

BT service that converts sms texts messages into a voicemail you can hear. System is not very good with some words. Basically a text2voice service for texts directed at your home line. I think the system will keep trying to call if you don't except it within 24 hours. Allows to stop them if you call them back.

This is a genuine BT service provided to landlines, not just BT customers, to convert text messages to voice when they are sent by landlines. The message contained can be from anyone, however. In my case it was Royal Mail telling me that a "parcel is out for delivery" very early on a Saturday morning - grrrrrr!

Last night my phone rang at 11pm, I was in bed and thought it be one of our children, so I got up and it was this phone number again. Then 8am this morning, Sunday, it rang again.

This is a genuine call from BT sending a text message to a landline phone (The text is necessarily from BT unless you have just placed an order with them ...it is just relaying a text message which anyone could have sent you like hospital, dentist, library, friend, family. You can set time curfews on when it rings you by dialling 08005875252 or you can stop it completely on the same number BUT then you will miss texts. Look on BT website under bt.custhelp.com and search Help and BT text calls. By the way our BT Call Guardian 8500 phone does block this number automatically.

This number may be legit but to call at 00.10am, with nothing on the line, is not on. It woke myself and my husband, and was worrying as I have an elderly mother who lives on her own. I had to get on to the computer to find out who this is, but it doesn't make it any easier knowing.

There are scammers out there using legitimate numbers for whatever reasons-I have had it happen to me before.
I don't think all these calls can be from BT, so better safe than sorry-don't give out any personal info, or time, if the caller cannot be identified.

It's a service that translates a text someone sent to a landline into audio for delivery. Annoying as it keeps ringing and doesn't do answerphones. The originating mobile number should be advised when you answer and before you are invited to press 1 to listen. Take care as this number could be spoofed. Try sending a test text to your landline. That's what a genuine call is like. No charge to answer a genuine call. Call back to retrieve the message (must be within 24 hours) at a cost of 5p per min plus network connection charge. Or you can just block this number and be done!

I wasn't going to continue posting about this text relay service but will respond one final time. I hate scammers. I dislike false information that can mislead people almost as much. I have never left abusive posts and why would a criminal post information about how to identify and avoid scams from this number? I got involved with this number last December when I had 2 text messages to my landline about a couple of deliveries ordered by phone (landline). I posted about them and noted much incorrect info. Since then, I have had about 4 or 5 audio text messages relayed to my landline via this number - a couple of misdials from relatives, an order and a cancelled appointment at the start of lockdown. The abusive 4 letter responses I got and also others posting similar finally got that thread shut. About a year back I did get a scam text via this number - one of the Argos voucher scams I think. Obviously easy to spot. The originating number was reported to the police at Action Fraud (all scams and attempted scams should be reported to this police database) - not this relay number, just doing its job, was not reported. Oh - and I don't do 'cut and paste' although I noted some crazy person did just that on a couple of other sites. This really is my final word on this number. PS Cretins wouldn't know what the Oort Cloud is and how fascinating it is.

I told you - I hate scammers. I always spend an hour most days in my retirement going through scam number posts so I know what the latest scams are and often post about how to deal with them (report to 'action fraud'). I also attempt to correct incorrect posts about a number. I hate false information deliberately spread on the web as much as I hate scammers - these idiots are almost as bad. I still keep an eye on the posts about this number although no longer posting anything. Something for 'Sparky' to be aware of when he has a go at people who genuinely got a kosher text via this number and posted about it.

I said that I have stopped posting about this number including (helpful?) details of how it works and hints how to identify and avoid the scams that may come via this number as all these posts cause a spat of quite nasty responses. My last post about this number is now and the 2 before that 8 and 4 July above. Otherwise, I have not responded to any posts comments or questions about this number on any site since about mid June - and that includes the related '111' number.

Sorry Sparky - not me posting on the 'unknown' site but I have been keeping a beady eye on what's occurring during the 1/2 hour or so I spend most mornings trawling through these sites.
Have had no choice but to (very briefly) come out of retirement on this number and site. But only a quick 'one liner'. Don't know if the site admin bods will publish it. Will see later today or tomorrow.
Sadly the semi-literate ranting idiots trolling this number have again buried the useful posts that some people are posting - including, I noticed, the couple of posts that just set out the different ways and means of blocking this number. That was in response to someone who genuinely seemed to want to know how to block it.
All very strange. And rather sad.
