I also have been looking at Virgin, and thought it might be an
option until I found economies disappeared when I costed in the 7p 
'call set-up fee' for each 'phone call made.

Now I find that Barclaycard has changed it's Customer Service
numbers and also will apply a 6p 'call set-up fee'. (I am long
retired and so no longer in the 'thick of things', also, I
rarely read newspapers).

Does anyone know the justification for these fees and how widespread
they are now applied?
