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. By default, the ability to call these numbers through your Shaw line is blocked.


Please see below for additional details.


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. Please be advised it may take up to 24 hours for this change to take effect.
