Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9832275A1] A method in a telecommunication network wherein a call is connected between two subscribers via a standard telephone network and the call is billed to a third subscriber. The first subscriber dials a subscriber number, preferably preceeded by a prefix, of the third subscriber, and dials a subscriber number of the second subscriber, wherein the telephone network is caused to connect the call to a computer unit that forwards the call from the first subscriber to the second subscriber. The computer unit can access the database that stores subscriber numbers together with personal data of the subscriber. The call is billed to the third subscriber and advertisements are transmitted on the call setup between the first and second subscribers.
