Re: 0800 numbers

If you have an apple device, this is the one I use for 0800 numbers.

If you're a android, I'm sure they will have apps like this.

Re: 0800 numbers

Whatever  you do, do not use 0800 or 800 numbers from your O2 Mobile until the new law has past where as mobile companies are required to change their 0800 charging system (expected later on in the year I believe).

 

If you are going to ring an 0800/800 number, ring from your landline instead as I have just been shafted with a £15 call charge after being advised 800 number's rang specifically from an O2 Pay Monthly mobile, I will certainly be thinking twice taking my 4 contracts elsewhere.

Re: 0800 numbers

0800 numbers have never been free from a mobile - everyone knows this, hence the rule changes and the 03 numbers that many companies now use instead.
Apps such as "saynoto 0870" etc are also popular for this very reason.
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Re: 0800 numbers

0800 Buster is also a popular app which will give you a predialled regional number to which you add the 0800 number. At least no one else will be caught out when the new rules are enforced.
