Free chat line numbers in uk

08 Feb

Below we've outlined what different numbers are for and what they will typically cost.

Call 08 numbers As mentioned above, these are now completely free to call from your mobile so dial away without worrying about your bill.

Call 0843/4, 0845, 0870, 0871/2/3 numbers The cost of calling 084 and 087 numbers is split up into two costs - these numbers are normally chat lines, technical support, sales lines and other related things.

Mobile networks tend to charge excessive amounts for these types of numbers – even more than when calling from a landline.

Since July 2015, Ofcom made sure that all 08 numbers were free on mobile phones, no matter what network you're on.

Firstly there is what's known as a 'service charge' which is set by the organisation you are calling and ranges from 0- and 13p per minute.You'll also get an 'access charge' which is set by your provider and start at 5p per minute.However, i Phone users will have to open the app to dial the number, and then tap the Start Call button. The app will start the call, using an 03 number, and you’ll hear a message from We Q4U about queuing.Your phone’s dialling screen will be visible so you can select options in automated systems as usual. If you do find you’re stuck waiting in a queue to talk to someone, simply tap 9* on the on-screen keypad and the app will notify you when an operator has picked up your call. If you're not an Android or i Phone user, you can still use the service!
