It's easy to test this by checking your account after calling an 0800 number.

it depends on the company that is providing the forwarding service, some of them are charged, some arent and it goes by the company not the number

So use it without worry -- freephone that actually IS freephone for a change.
This doesn't cost 02 anything to allow to work anyway, so hopefully they won't change this. But I'd still keep an eye on your bills in future to make sure this is the case folks.
...just need one for those sodding 0870/0871/0845/0844 now. Anyone ?
I thought I heard/read somewhere that Ofcom were supposed to be questioning this practice of not including 08 numbers in mobile call plans, whether freephone ones or otherwise?
We get them included with landlines --my Virgin Media includes them in my plan, for example-- so isn't it about time we move into the 21st century and stop being charged extra when many of us have loads of inclusive minutes left at the end of the month, yet still have to pay for these 08 extra's on top!
Oligopoly in the mobile phone industry really shouldn't be allowed by Ofcom, or even further into EU policy either, as not one of the mobile providers have a single plan that includes 08's. Other countries do not follow similar policy, so why not the UK?
(...and relax. I'll get of my soapbox, before this message gets deleted )

Yes, I like Apple's device vertical integration, but am no fanboi – I prefer to keep my critical eyes firmly open.
