Calling 0800 freephone numbers could finally be free to call from mobile phones. Calling freephone numbers from mobile phones has also been charged by all UK operators. Freephone numbers are used mostly from Utility, Banks and customer service centers and calling freephone numbers could cost as much as 30p from your mobile
Ofcom has now got involved and is now exploring how to restructure the charging structure for mobile operators. However, this could take some time and don’t be calling these freephone numbers from your mobile just yet, as it could take as long as a year to implement.
Like me, i avoid calling 0800 freephone numbers from mobiles or 0870 numbers by finding a suitable alternative telephone number from Say No to 0870 website.
