How to call 0800 numbers FREE from your mobile....

Been fed up with paying 20p a minute to phone up my bank and other companies so here is a really easy solution :smileyvery-happy:

Just dial 02002220700 and wair for the prompt to type in your number ie 0800 111 etc etc and you wont be charged for the call. Simple as that folks!!!

(doesnt work for 0845 or 0870 numbers though)

Hope it saves you some money. We shouldnt be charged for an 0800 number from our mobile anyway.

Of course now that number has been posted on an o2 forum they will probably block the number or make it chargeable

Highly Doubt it, I dont think any one who works at O2 looks at this forum, apart from 1 or 2.

Well I'm grateful anyway, it will come in good use.

I've never paid for 0800, 0845 numbers.

I just go on the web and get the geographical equivalent.

The forums are moderated though, as we know posts and full threads do appear to vannish so it may get noticed and removed or charged, as if it is call forwarding then its not a standard land line, ah well.

Say no to 0870 is the way forward, no forwarding just alternate numbers.

Any 08 number that you call from your mobile is charged, for that im 100% certain, except for the o2 customer service number of course :smileyvery-happy:

But generally they're charged at these rates:

No, I meant is the 020 number at the top of this thread followed by the 0800 -- does that really work, or are o2 charging for using this method?
Also, if they DO charge for it, are they charging at an 020 price or at 0800 price per minute for the call?
