There's a free app for iPhones (but not iPhone 5 at the moment)

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/0845-wizard/id499529789?mt=8

 

Or if you have an Android phone there are apps on Google Play. Not sure if there's one for 0845 on Google, but there's 0800 Wizard, which is self explanatory.

I have just tried to call an 0845 number, it is FREE . . the automated message says is is FREE, yet i am directed to the Pay & Go Top UP Service !! . . despite being on a £15 big bundle, not big enough it seems for the 02 Fat Cats who want to squeeze yet more from its customers !!!   ABSOULETLY PATHETIC !!!!!!!

Yes, they are actually free, it was in the press...even the automated message says is is a free call, but 02 have engineered them to their own liking to make yet more money . . simple as that  . . and the Fat Cats get Fatter . .
