I needed to report an incident yesterday (non-emergency) and for the first time ever needed to call the police on their new non-emergency 101 number. As I no longer have any PSTN lines in my home (i'm now 100% VoIP), I wasn't sure if I make the call over my home VoIP line or if I should use my mobile phone (can you call 101 from a mobile phone?).
Anyway, after dialling 101 on my Gigaset C430H handset (registered to VoiceHost), I was pleasantly surprised to hear it ring! I was greeted by an automated system that stated the following:
After stating the name of the force, I was promptly connected to an operator who took my report and the police responded a short time later. WELL DONE VOICEHOST!!!Thank you for calling 101, please say the name of the police force you would like to be connected to.
No unsolicited PMs or emails unless you're planning on asking for paid help.
