Free 0800 Access From Mobile Phones
I'm sure you are aware that you can't call an 0800 'freephone' number for free using your mobile. We think that's wrong, so we thought about it for a while and have come up with a crafty way of making these calls for free - as they were originally designed to be.
Is it really totally free?
Yes - if you have a contract mobile package with included minutes to UK geographic numbers like 01 and 02.
(Even if you use a Pay-as-you-go mobile it's normally cheaper than calling the 0800 directly; but you need to check with your provider.)
How does it work?
1. Dial our access number 029 2000 0800 (add it to your address book)
2. When we answer, just enter the 0800 number you want to call and wait to be connected.
How can you do it for free?
We get a tiny fraction of a penny for the call from the network operator, not enough to matter but enough to cover our costs. But we mostly do it simply because we can, because it's quite cool and because we think mobile phone pricing is a rip-off.
