If its premium dont ring it, you dont know what premium rate it is so it could cost you 5 quid to find the number

Post it here and well find out

This happened to me a while back, soon after we set up an internet connection. We called BT about it and apparently there are dialers which download themselves onto your computer and dial premium rate numbers without you knowing.
Needless to say, we stepped up the internet security after that.

Don't use dialup.
Don't install dialers/go to dodgy porn sites.

You need a browser like AVANT (NOT Firefox) which can disable scripts. Firefox doesn't disable ALL scripts so I've had a few problems from using that.

Avant with scripts disabled = porn god.

Maybe your partner rang the number though?

Top info. Altough dodgey adverts on some non porn sites can cause it too!

If you complain to ICSTIS then they will tell you who the line belongs to.
