cellphone policies

i’ve worked at four different companies in bangkok.
two companies, allow me to dial cellphone numbers (prefix 01, 06, 07, etc) from my desk phone.

the other two companies, which are both in the same industry, do not allow me to dial direct. i must call the operator, give her the number, hangup and she’ll call me back with the connected line.

the funny thing about the cellphone via operator companies are client service industries, and a lot of people that work there have to call into cellphones. instead they get annoyed with the system and end up using their personal cellphones. at the same time the companies reimburse them. but never the real figure. they give a monthly phone allowance starting from a pathetic B600.

i guess it’s a way to maintain costs.

    when you’re traveling abroad. guess my
    case is worse, so you can smile now. :)
