A handy service for calling 0800, 0808 & 0500 for FREE from your mobile which are annoyingly normally chargeable!

Most mobile phone providers in the UK still charge their users for calls to 0800, 0808 and 0500 numbers. 0800Buster lets you call these numbers using your mobile’s inclusive minutes, by providing you with a UK landline number to dial instead.

No registration or set-up is necessary, and the service is completely free*. Just dial 01204 20 0800, enter the full free-phone number you want to call at the prompt, then press #—it’s that simple!

The number in your post does not match the one on the website or am I missing something?

Other than that sounds good.

Great site to complement saynoto0870.

Beware that T-Mobile only charge 10p/min for 0800 calls (according to their site). That's actually less than using the site to convert 0800 to a normal land line call if I've already used my inclusive minutes (I pay more than 10p/min as a run on rate to landlines)... Your mileage may vary...

The text in your post has the number - 01204 20 0800 but when I use the link to the site the number there is - 01229 31 0800. I'm sure that when I looked at it before the number was different again!

Just cleared my history and gone back via the link on here and the number displayed is now - 01249 20 0800

Just cleared my browser history again and the number top left has changed again!

Instructions
1.Dial 01207 45 0800
2.Enter the 0800, 0808, or 0500 number you want to phone
3.Press # to start the call

Can't see how this works if its a different number each time? Stays the same unless you clear your history. Be really happy if someone out there can tell me why,

Kip

good find thanks for the info :p

good deal

The changing number must be their way of distributing load and keeping focus on their url rather than a single number.

Just pick one and store it in your phone.

Does it work with 0845 Numbers?

What's the best site for 0845/0870 etc?

This was posted on HUKD before by one of the develops from the site I think.

He says any number listed for 0800 buster will work, they alternate telephone numbers on their site to not max out server traffic to one single phone server at one time. So they alternate their phone numbers on their website!

Been using it for a while, and it's great stuff when I cant be bothered to grab the landline which is all the way downstairs, or when I'm out and about and need to make an 0800 call.

Use saynoto0870.com to find an alternative geographical (landline) number for the 0870 or 0845 number. It does have an extensive database of numbers for a majority of the big companies, however you will find for smaller companies, there is no alternative (however it's only happened to me twice and I've been using it for 2 years...).

And for any 0845 / 0870 numbers not listed on saynoto0870 (of which there are quite a few) I recommended using http://www.18185.co.uk

It works the same way as 0800 Buster except they charge 1p to 3p a minute for calls but it's still a lot cheaper than most standard mobile rates.

I'm still yet to find a practical solution for 0871 and 0844 numbers. The best I can think of so far is ordering the free sims you see in the freebies section and if they come with preloaded credit use that instead to make those calls.

Thanx OP....handy for the '0800 recovery' AA...whom i never hope to call!

The title is a bit misleading - the calls aren't free, they're taken out of your bundled minutes or charged at the same price as a landline call.
Whereas a network like GiffGaff have all 0800 numbers completely free to call regardless.

People have already explained why - it's so everyone doesn't call the one number jamming the line.
