Are you doing ignorepat somewhere?
If not, you'll need to chop off the 8 at the beginning.

Also, since I'm not sure...

Does * pick up the line and dial, then fail? Or does it fail before it picks
up the line?

Do you have X100 --> PSTN working for non-UK calls? If so, try your entry
into the other context and see if it fails there as well. (Maybe something
leading up to this particular choice is hosed?

Your eyes are weary from staring at the CRT. You feel sleepy. Notice how
restful it is to watch the cursor blink. Close your eyes. The opinions
stated above are yours. You cannot imagine why you ever felt otherwise.
