Found 7th Aug 2014
Hi there,

I am sure it's not new but some still don't know about free calls from SKYPE.

I just discovered today that 0800 number is free from SKYPE account. Just log in and dial UK: +44 500, +44 800, +44 808 even if you do not have Skype Credit.

edited:
also works for
France: +33 800, +33 805, +33 809
Poland: +48 800
USA: +1 800, +1 866, +1 877, +1 888
Taiwan: +886 80

If you don't want to pay for the call using your mobile or you are abroad and have to call one of above numbers this is perfect option.

Hope it helps!

Ben

Thanks for the tip. Useful for USA numbers too.

All for saving money on telephone calls !

Good reminder been about for a while and not just the Uk so it seems as the many previous threads can show but this is good to gain heat again.

Correct on both counts.

Posted before (ages ago) and a great reminder. Heat from me.

Discovered this while on holiday in Wales in a spot mobile signals dared not tread.

It's great to know.

Good news for me! thanks

Didn't realise this.. use Skype alot so thanks

Didn't know that, thanks.

I've been using it for several years, but good reminder!

Often poor signal here in Corwall so this is great. Heat added....

I had no idea that you could call 08 numbers using Skype, thanks for sharing the info.

Excellent!

Thanks for the tip

Great! Can finally call 0800 numbers free from my mobile!!

Does it work for any other country too such as India & Hong Kong ?

just tried calling and got message saying "insufficient credit"

awesome ... works in uk.heat added...

I hate to sound arrogant here but I spend most of my time in Austria so have been using Skype to call 0800 numbers back home for free for months, maybe years. This is hardly something new, never mind worth raving about, so I'm sorry utter pants and freezing cold hohum

Do you know any call center no. to test this.

Not arrogance; just your mind fooling you into thinking everyone else is the same as you. We all have this flaw.

Thanks op. Didn't realise this before. Heat added.

Great find op!! Heat added

Great to know! Thanks!

Excellent News... Never knew this.

I had no idea about this and I am currently in Australia so this will help me a lot.

Thanks OP.

why people vote cold because they already know this I have no idea.. its very useful information and deserves heat!

Not everyone has the same knowledge - even if something isn't useful for one person, it doesn't mean it'll be a worthless deal for others. Your cold vote is totally against the point of the site.

Great deal. Absolutely hate making 08 calls on the go but always in a 4G area so this will save me a fortune! Heat added.

With such a massive heat score it is obvious that most people here disagree with you.
The OP has made it clear this is not new so what are you prattling on about it for?
Getting something useful for free is a great deal and is worth raving about, that is at the core of the point of this site.
I notice you have yet to post a single deal. What a troll.

If you hate to sound arrogant, why do it?

great. i didn't know about this.

Great find OP. I am sure this will come in very useful when theres no access to land line to make these calls from, and most mobile operators charge for the privilege. Hot from me!:3

Just register with SKYPE, having your account you will be able to use the service dialing the 0800 number you want to connect to. If you have a laptop you dont have to connect a mic or speakers but use the service straight away. You basically use your computer to communicate to another user using mic and speakers connected to your PC - no need to connect your phone in any way to your PC.
