I put this in the saynoto0870 post and 2 people said they had not heard of it before so I thought I would put this up incase anyone else did not know about it.

This was last posted on here over a year ago so this is just a reminder you can still do this.

Basically you

Dial 0118 352 0800
Enter the 0800, 0808, or 0500 number you want to phone
Press # to start the call

Can I still use your service if I don’t get free minutes to UK landlines?

Our access numbers should be charged at the normal landline rate, which might still be cheaper than calling 0800, 0808 or 0500 number direct. Check your mobile tariff to see if we could still save you money.

What’s the catch? How does 0800Buster.co.uk earn any money?

We can offer this to you as a free service because we receive a small amount of money for handling toll free calls.

How can I store your numbers in my phone’s address book?

Most mobiles come with the ability to add “pauses” to contacts which cause the phone to wait for 2–3 seconds before dialling the rest of the number. These are usually represented by a “p” or “+” so the number you store should resemble 01183520800p0800123456#. To enter a pause:
Nokia - press three times (or until p appears)
Samsung, Motorola - press and hold until p appears
Sony Ericsson - press and hold until p appears
LG - press and hold until p appears
Siemens - press and hold until + appears
Apple iPhone - press and hold until , appears

Can I use your service to call 0845, 0870, or other UK numbers?

Unfortunately it would cost us money to handle these calls so we cannot offer it as part of our free service. You can, however, use our parent company Localphone.com to make cheap calls to the UK which should work out considerably cheaper than using your mobile directly.

What are some useful numbers I can call with 0800Buster?

You can get free directory enquiries from your mobile by dialling the 0800Buster access number, followed by 0800 118 3733.

Missed it first time. Thanks.

Interesting - I have been using 0870 for a while but this one is good as I don't have a landline. Thanks!

great find, thanks

Why does the website list 01212 84 0800 as the access number?

be carefull on the o2 network, they have T&C's from what i understand restricting the use of access numbers.
It's just if you are caught and charged (money not jail)

Didnt know about this, thank you for posting!

Didn't have a clue! Thanks a bunch!

if this works then its amazing!

It's free to ring an 0800 on o2 anyway so it would be pointless.

0800 numbers have never been free on mobile networks and it so isn't on o2 mate.

here's a small list of numbers that are free from o2 free numbers - O2

Wish there was one for 0845/0870.
But this will come in handy too.
Heated.

perfect!

Been using 0800 Buster for ages now and it has saved me a bomb!

If you need to ring 0845 / 0870 numbers from your mobile and can't find an alternative number on the saynoto0870 site then do what I do and join 18185. It's another routing service, who are free to join, and they charge between 1p to 3p per minute (+ airtime minutes / 0208 rate) for 0845 / 0870 calls from a mobile. Much better than paying your network's rip off 20p - 25p.

18185.co.uk

BTW I'm on contract with O2 and have never had a problem with using routing services. My bill never goes past the standard £20pm of my contact plan either!

They USED to be free on Orange many many years ago

NICE.

Good service if you need it. I have giffgaff as mobile provider and they offer free calls to 0800 and similar anyway so won't need it, but great for those that would normally cost on their network.
