    I have a letter from Canada pension asking me to call them back collect.
    Holland (Netherlands) says this is not possible.
    I can't imagine this to be true but I have tried every way I can think of and I can not get the number to call through.
    Does anyone have an answer to this....this is very URGENT...!!!
    Thank you for any help you can offer me.
    Kind Regards,

    Hello,

    The thing about collect calling is that it is a dying business these days.
    There are so many ways one can communicate that there is no longer a popular
    need for this type of service.

    These being said you might be able to call collect, depending on the country
    you live in. Basically you would have to reach an operator who would place
    the call for you. And I believe you would have to use a landline. According
    to Fodors.com "To reach an operator, dial 0800/0410. To make a collect call,
    or dial toll-free to a number outside the Netherlands, dial 0800/0101."

    Have you tried just dialing the number? I mean do you not afford the charges
    or do you think you can't call the number unless it's a collect call? To
    direct dial this Canadian # from Holland you would add 001 to it: 001 613
    957 1954 (I just tried dialing it and it works fine without it having to be a collect call).
