Customer liability for premium-rate (1-900) telephone numbers
Review this article to understand the liability of having 1-900 phone numbers unblocked. 1-900 and 1-976 calls connect you to companies that provide a service (for example psychic lines, adult chats, contests, etc.). These calls are billable to your account if they are made from your line, and the cost can range from $1 to $15 per minute or more.
1-900 Number liability
By default, the ability to call 1-900 or 1-976 numbers through your Shaw line is blocked.
Shaw automatically puts a block on your line so that 1-900 and 1-976 calls can't be made from your telephone.
By requesting that Shaw remove blocking of 1-900 and 1-976 dialing you are solely responsible for the use by you and other users, including all calls to 1-900 and 1-976 numbers originating from your telephone(s) regardless of who made them.
To request the removal of the block on 1-900 and 1-976 numbers, please Contact Us or use our self-serve in My Shaw Home Phone features to enable/disable the feature (More info in the Privacy section). Please be advised it may take up to 24 hours for this change to take effect.
