This was the conversion of an SMS/Text message to an audio recording. Leaving aside the high cost of the call, whether it is dangerous, safe etc depends on who sent the original message!

I have just phoned BT, via 100, the operator, and she told me, that 08456021111 Is the text retieval number!!! Like someone sending a text to your landline number instead of your mobile number!! Remember BT outsource some operator services to India etc, outside normal hours!!! They are not always brilliant at getting what you are talking about Not their fault! Language! They don't fully understand English! Ring 100 during the day, most of its done from Scotland, so hear a Scottish accent and you will get the truth ridiculous I know but that's it 08456021111 is Text retreival ????????????

Just had a 2nd call...answered. took time get a response. Foreign voice saying she was from bt and started to ask about my computer. I said i wasnt with bt. She asked me who I was with.

Called NINE times today. Number shows up on my phone but on my BT account it shows as withheld.

I have BT Call Guardian so I my phone never rang as the number is not in my contacts list, I noticed it the following morning but the number was displayed as 8456021111, without the 0 in front, after checking out the number on this site, I added the 0 and dialled 08456021111 and it was BT's SMS messaging service. My daughter in law had inadvertently sent a text message to my landline instead of my mobile. I received the message via computer generated voice. All ok, not scam number quite safe.

This is a genuine BT SMS system. Anyone can send any number any sms . That is why you are getting bogus SMS alongside genuine ones. It’s much like the nuscance callers who just random dial number chains, I have a horrible feeling that they have mutated to this landline SMS feature instead. The beauty of course is that you can easily keep the evidence. Just send it all to OFCOM and keep complaining.

This was BT for me - someone had hit the "send a message" button when rejecting my phonecall. However, it is possible that someone could use this feature to trick you into calling a premium number so take care when considering the initial message.

If you receive a call on your landlines from number 08456021111 there will be no body there.i tracked it and it's from a bt messaging service and it will cost you 5p a minute to find what the message is.it will continue for several hours a day every 5 to 10 minutes.I stopped it by reducing my answer machine to 2 rings then deleted the message which just told you what number to call and set my answer machine back to normal ring time and had no more since.

Thisis NOT a scam. It is BT's text messaging service when an SMS message is sent to a land line number instead of a mobile. It called me 4 times in one afternoon, so I investigated the number online at BT's website which showed the same number (08456021111). You dial the 0845 number (5p a minute I'm afraid) and then the SMS message is dictated verbally by a machine.

Its an automated call from BT to advise you someone has sent a text message to your landline. If you ring the number, you can pick up any texts. Nothing sinister about this number. I does rather beg the question, why is someone texting a land line but that's a discussion for another time...……..

We have a skype line, and an audio message was received. Many are saying it's BT but I can clarify that this surely must be a scam. A mobile number was then repeated by the automated voice and a message was left from a genuine member of the public saying "who's this?" We then received a direct phone call from the person from that mobile number to ask us who were were and why we called them. I can guarantee we did not call them as we are a small business and only use this skype line for incoming calls. We have no skype credit so we cannot make outgoing calls.

Following on about the BT text forwarding service. If you wait until the end if the instructions and do not press any of the buttons, wait a few moments and the text message will be delivered to you without having to call any number, in the synthesized speech form. Be patient !

This is a BT text forwarding service. If someone has sent a text to your land line, from a mobile phone, the message is converted from text to speech via a text to speech converter. Have a pen and paper ready to take note of the number that you will be advised to call to retrieve your message You have to listen carefully to the instructions to retrieve the message. The number that you have to call is a low rate number upto 10p per min and not a premium rate number. So now you know, do not fret. You are not being persecuted by anyone.

Rang last night at 8pm, and rang every half an hour until 10:30pm. Continued to ring today from 8:30am every half an hour. Checked the number on multiple sites and it seems the general consensus is that it’s a BT text to voice service and that someone has sent a text message to my landline. That’s all fine and well, however 10:30 in the evening is a bit of a joke. I do believe you can disable this service or change options for calling times. Seems you have to opt out of everything these days rather than opt in!

Received on my TPS number. So an infringement of my preference. Now a criminal offence rather than just breaking a code of practice. Reported to TPS with a recommendation to prosecute. Only way to convey message. I operate and pay for a telephone for my benefit. Not for the benefit of any stray b*********d who feels like calling me. Rant over.

Yes, it's safe, (unless somebody's sending a junk text to your landline). It happens usually when one of your contacts accidentally sends a text to your landline instead of your mobile. Then BT's text-to-speech system steps in and calls you with what sounds like a dodgy recorded voice, but it's not trying to sell anything, just get the message to you as best it can. If you listen all the way through, it will give you the number of the mobile that made the text in the first place.

It really is the BT SMS text to voice service, to enable you to get the message if someone sends a text message to your BT landline. But you need to answer it, as otherwise it will keeep ringing you because it wants you to get the message. We have a Truecall Call blocker on our home phone, and we have programmed this number into it as a favourite, so it will get through. This is important as we get several text messages per month sent to our landline and we want to know what they say. Our Truecall box has an answerphone, so if we don't answer, or are out, it will leave a messageon the answerphone. Then it will not ring you again. BT are trying to be helpful, but many people looking at this website just cannot understand that.

Further to my preceding “•••••NOT A SCAM•••••” comment re the bona fide BT “SMS Text to Voicemail” service:- •The default curfew period may be 12 midnight to 6am. •Ring Freephone 0800 587 525 to change it [or stop the service altogether via Option 1 + Option 5]. • There are currently 32 [!!!] pages of comments to read, going back to 20/07/2014! :-) • As many people as possible should complain to BT that “the service” should be switched off initially by default, and that the landline user should then be actively required to set a curfew period of his / her choice, prior to the service being activated by BT. Not too much to ask I would say, considering the number of unfavourable reports for this number on this, and other, sites, and as a BT public relations exercise! :-)

•••••NOT A SCAM••••• Why don’t some of you people read the posts coloured green [SAFE!], going back several pages? This is the bona fide BT “SMS Text to Voicemail” service, where BT converts a text message from a 3rd Party to voicemail and sends the voicemail to your landline. Unfortunately, by default, it also causes your phone to ring repeatedly at all hours of the day and night! :-( You can reset the unsociable default curfew period to something more reasonable e.g. a 9pm to 9am curfew [or ••••• turn off the service altogether •••••] by ringing Freephone 0800 587 5252. To retrieve your voicemail messages, ring back the number under which these posts appear i.e. 0845 602 1111 [this may cost you if you don’t have an “inclusive / anytime” plan for your landline].Simples! :-)

This is definitely a BT number calling to relay a text message that somone has sent to your land line, it will keep calling you until you answer and retrieve the message. It will give you the number of the person who sent the text. Those of you who are being wished happy birthday on their birthdays, probably have a relative sending a text to your landline by mistake !!!

Perfectly safe. It is the sms (text) message service from bt.

It's safe: This is the BT SMS (Text) Landline - Unknown to me, my sister sent a text to my landline by accident. The landline rang, I answered. Thought it might be a scam so hung up without "reading" the text or pressing any buttons; and checked on this site for feedback. About 5 mins later the landline rang again from the same number. I answered and recognised the number this time so selected "1" to hear the text, which it read out. Deleted the text and haven't had a call since. However, this IS a legitimate number. Following listening to the message it gave details of how to choose options for delivery times of texts to the landline, which i imagine could be useful for some.

This number is the text service of bt and it keeps ringing till you receive it - we have a friend with awful habit of sending texts at night and forgets that it is a landline and not a mobile. Sometimes people send message to all contacts.

called this morning. I looked up the number online to see who it was. Number called again 10 minutes later- this time I answered it. Automated message said "THIS IS THE BT SMS DELIVERY SERVICE' and told me the number that had sent a text & the message. In my case this was a genuine text from my son, sent last night, telling me that he was working late, and he sent it to the landline by mistake. I have had calls before from this number, from either my doctor or dental surgery, reminding me of appointments. If you don't answer, the service will continue trying to deliver the message, which is why some of you are getting multiple calls. If you answer, you can delete the message, and it won't call again!

' BT ' should be brought to task, or at least the " id**t " who came up with the idea should be !!!!!!.... Also the number that the ' so called answer service gives you to supposedly control the messages doesn't work, when you dial it, it just silence at the other end.

The number is owned by the that company that just loves to annoy BT. Its decided to allow people to sent SMS messages to your land line, and then use some text to speech malarky to ring your number, again and again, until you jolly well listen to the message. Of course they have opted you in to this service without your consent. If the BT MD would like to show his face at my front door I would very much like to smash it in. You can opt out of this service by dialling 08005875252 and choosing option 1 to change the social hours times and then option 5 to opt out entirely.

It's a text messaging service run/hosted by BT - often in my experience when a contact accidentally sends a text to my landline rather than mobile, or from a delivery service sending a delivery notice. Once answered the service doesn't contact you again - if you don't answer it tries again later. Hence the repeat calls. It's not a scam/not dangerous.

Nothing to panic about. In my case the Royal Mail sent me a text message to the landline saying they are delivering a parcel today. When you call, you get to listen to the message read out by a female rebot. For those complaining about the time this number calls you, you could ask the person/company who is texting your landline at night, why? That's not BTs fault. And if you call the number and listen to the text message, all further reminder calls cease!

I have finally found the solution. (From a BT forum) Regardless off what provider you're with, the following will resolve the problem...... From your landline, dial 0800 587 5252 Select Option 1, (then rather than listen to all the bumf about what times in the day you would like this annoying facility), select Option 5 and this will disable all incoming text messages. Your request should be activated within 20-30 minutes. ITS A FREE CALL I did this apx 2 hours ago (before-hand, I had about 4 calls in the space of 90mins), and I've had none since doing the above. Really hope this helps someone.

It's a 'text to landline' service where the message is read out. I'd prefer that the sender of the text got a message saying they had texted a landline [or texts to non 07......... numbers didn't get sent].

No NOT safe at all, was doing a password reset requiring a code, phone rang - 08456021111,I was silent expecting automated code, not automated, a live female spoke after some silence with code, put code in, it was REJECTED !! Didn't feel safe so reset password again, call 'unavailable' number. Call this time automated with code. Put code in, accepted. Immediately got 4 emails claiming to be company I was resetting password for, no! 3 were fake, 1 genuine. BT is NOT safe at all at the moment, nor yahoo. Months problems, at my wits end, called the news. Reporter took all, asked for the 4 emails, I sent. Was published in 2 hours later plus extent of the BT hack. Be CAREFUL !!! Will not be solved soon.

It's just the BT Voice Text system calling you to leave a voice text essage, such as delivery companies issue to advise of a delivery. I get them DHL and they are very annoying. They call anytime fom 8.30am onwards. They call multiple times. I kept getting calls from BT today but they didn't leave a message because I had let my messages build up and evidently my message system was full. Once I deleted my messages, the BT number called me again,with another three messages from DHL (ard was delivered this morning, I do wish they'd update their stupid systems) plus one from my Mum who gets my landline mixed up with my mobile. She obviously meant to send a text. All messages now deleted, hopefully the flipping phone I'll stop ringing now!

Whe n i got home from a day out i checked my landline for issed calls and found this number listed 8 times through the day. I have not called the number back and do not intend to. The frequency of the calls indicates it is an automated calling system. I have added it to my blocked numbers. Over the last 18 months I ahve been receiving the Talk talk technician scam calls every week, sometimes ten times in a week so I am familiar with the scams. I note on the tv program Rip Off Britain that scammers can now make your phone show a legitimate number such as your bank. Beware. It is getting to the point where the scammers are way ahead of our banks and utility companies security measures.

Although some people indicate this number is safe I have been told by 2 people at BT today that it is not a BT number. It seems to be quite a coincidence that I received these calls shortly after making contact with BT both online and t/c's, I was awaiting contact so answered them and with the first call did as instructed and pressed 1 to listen to a message which I did not feel was genuine as it said that I had asked to change my password, which I had not.

This number 0845 number is safe to call (there is a small charge) but beware of calling the mobile number that sent you a text as per the comment on this site dated 1.9.16: I realise the number is the BT text service but be wary of responding to messages sent through it. Scammers can text your landline and con you into calling them. I had a message supposedly from Vodafone about my £1600 mobile bill which was from a scammer. The service provides a great way for them to stay anonymous.

It is definitely British Telecom to advise you have a text message, giving you the choice of listening to it, saving the message and/or deleting it. Every time we’ve had a text message on our landline, it’s been a mistake by one of our friends, sending the text to our landline number instead of sending it to our mobiles.

This is BT calling to read you a text message that someone has (mistakenly) sent to your BT landline. As others have said, they keep trying until you answer. If you return the call, you can listen to the message - and then they will stop calling you. You can turn this service off if you want to, but then you won't know about the messages. But all perfectly innocent and harmless. Trouble is, there are so many harassing 0845 numbers that one is naturally suspicious.

It's a mystery! Checking my secondary phone, the number 08456021111 came up about 10 times out of 38, with the odd withheld number in between. Was a very concentrated attempt, and clearly I have been lucky enough to have been out, so not necessarily harassed by this/these callers. Should the culprits read these pages. I, like so many others, do not answer unknown or withheld numbers. I think I have deduced it is nothing to do with BT. IT WILL BE A SCAM.

This is an automated call from BT - someone has sent a text message to your landline by mistake. This is easily done if you have contacts in your mobile phone address book with multiple saved numbers (i.e. their landline, their work number, their mobile number) - very easy to click and send the text message to the wrong one. I did it myself a couple of weeks ago. The number is safe - it's listed on the BT website.

I guess BT make you aware of a text message sent to a landline, but they can't be responsible for the text content

Says message undeliverable! TO SOLVE: dial 0800 587 5252 dial 1470 before the number if you have a private number so BT can recognise your number. Follow the prompts to cancel receiving voice text messages. The only other way to block will be through your service provider which probably will charge you a monthly fee!. Or if you have a telphone with number blocking. Yay back to a bit of peace. If you like this advice please copy and paste it to the top of this message board to help the next person out otherwise this will just be THE BEST solution that will get lost in old complaints / comments.

Two calls today requesting that I call BT urgently on 08000851064 regarding unusual activity on my account. Potentially credible as I had an interrupted overseas conference call a few days ago. Checked the web and got conflicting reports, so I used the BT chat line. They confirmed that BT had NOT called me this morning - which means that, given the other responses here, it may sometimes be genuine and may sometimes be a scam. The lesson is: always check before you respond!

This number called my landline 3 times between 7am and 7.20am.

08456021111 It is BT Text Service for landlines I got 6 missed calls from this number on my landline and so, to prove it was the text service I sent myself a text from my mobile. The landline rang with this number so I answered and it told me I had 2 new voice messages. The first was from BT who were replying to a query I had raised with customer services recently, and the second was my text read back to me including the mobile number (mine) The voice said you can set various options by dialing free on 0800 587 5252, including the option to stop receiving texts this way.

08456021111 is a number used by BT to try to send a text message from a third party sender. In my case my phone will not accept text messages. The answerphone I bought when BT started to charge for 1571 picked up this call and then I listened to it. If the text is unable to be received the system reads the message for me. In this case it was North West Electricity telling me that some customers were experiencing a "power outage" and told me how long they thought the power would be off. So how did I know that this was a proper message. Easy, I stubbed me toe on the chair in the dark as I tried to find the phone as we were in the middle of a power cut at the time!! As far as I am concerned this is what an answering machine is for.

08456021111 is a BT number attempting to pass on the contents of a text message to you. It's happened to me a few times when a caller has tried to send a text to my landline, which doesn't accept texts. You can call 08456021111 and an automated responder will read out the number of the original caller, or you can simply ignore the call. The fault is not with BT, but with the person who assumes your landline number accepts texts.

It genuinely IS the BT text messaging number. We had this number this morning and did not answer, assuming it was a cold call because of the '08' number. After lots of googling I suspected it was a text message and so we sent our own text message to our landline to check the number and we were right - same number. We then retrieved our message and it was a text from our water company about a burst in our street. I never answer '08' numbers so I have now added this to our phone's address book so it comes up as 'TEXT MESSAGE' and we know it's OK to answer.

from bt website :- How can I stop BT Text calls? You will receive text calls if you’ve been sent a text message and don't have a text enabled phone. An electronic voice will read the message out. You can stop them or set curfews by calling 0800 587 5252 from the landline you're receiving them on.

This is an sms message system. My caller was BT reminding me of a service call for a broadband issue, because i was not able to answer the first attempt it will re ring until you do. That might be why people get repeated calls during the day. I would suggest that it might be best to listen to the message as like mine it could be important. Blocking this system might reduce the service to your phone.

The issue with this number is anyone can leave any type of message to be read out to you, let's hope Bt do bar people who withhold their mobile/feature home phone sms number when sending a text to be read out to another home number as it could be used to harass people instead of calling by voice and likely being ignored or sent to answering services. If you have ever supplied your home number for a delivery, it's often the company sending you notice that the driver is nearby - however should you notice this type of call happening often and you are getting spam text to voice messages the service can actually be deactivated Argos use this service .

This is indeed an official BT service to convert SMS text messages which are directed to a landline phone. It's a robot (computer) who tells you the calling mobile phone number, and then tries to convert it to speech. Unfortunately, it doesn't indicate which is description and which is the actual message, it's not very good with some words, and doesn't pause between sentences, so it's quite hard to understand. But you have options to hear the message again (1), skip it, if you have several, save it so it's there later, or delete it. I believe it keeps trying for 24 hours if you don't answer.

Repeatedly rang this morning, Christmas Eve, VERY annoying. There was a voice message saying something rather unclear about a text, so it may have been that someone sent a text to my landline and it could not be delievered?
