I know this has been posted two month ago (http://www.hotukdeals.com/freebies/freephone-0800-numbers-with-skype-also-toll-free-1630985) but because I do not have phone like too and use the service a lot decided to freshen up the freebie so that those who did not notice it before can benefit from it now.
Also worth to mention WeQ4U, which is a FREE Android/iPhone App and Service that puts you through to UK 08 numbers for FREE, without queueing. Mobile users save approx. 30p per minute on their 0800, 0845, 0844, 0843, 0870, 0871 and 0872 calls weq4u.co.uk/

Thanks that's news to me .

I think most people know about his already, but it's a useful post for those that don't.
Also with Skype you can actually call any international freephone numbers as well, i.e. US 1-800 numbers.

Do I have to be in the UK to call for free?

I do not think so, but not sure.

Always was free to freephone numbers in the UK and toll free USA numbers.

Most VoIP services have free calls to 0800 numbers

Do I need to have balance on my Skype account to call 0800 numbers?

Yeah I used the 1-800 number once when I had problems with an EA game

Not just 0800 numbers a free from Skype. You can phone any worldwide Freephone number from Skype. Example USA 1-800

Thanks for this, just tested it out on virgin media and got them to pay me back that sneaky price increase of £2.50 pm since october until next june

The WEQ4U app doesn't call these numbers for free, it uses your contract minutes. Also it queues for you and calls you back, therefore saving you more money. Excellent App in my opinion.

Forgot about this actually...although 3g generally need to call during day when i'm at work and 3g reception crap.

I find this site very usefeul saynoto0870.com/ gives you alternative numbers to use...and since my phone has unlimited calls to uk landlines it suits me :-)

Thanks - didn't know about this (or weq4u.co.uk/ )

Thanks . This is new to me.

AWESOME, didn't know this!! Strangely 0800 numbers aren't included in contract allowance, but I can call 0845 numbers using the WEQ4U app... so actually freephone numbers are worse for me! Great to know

Used Skype when I was abroad on holiday to call the bank. Much much cheaper than the roaming charges vodafone were going to charge.

Thanks for the head-ups, didnt realise.

New to me too - many thanks. Heated!

Great skype I just tried it's working

News to me too. Thanks.

OKAY!

I'm on giffgaff so don't need this as 0800 calls are free from my mobile!

Cool so is 1-900 so you can call america.

Weq4u worked a a treat. Heat added!
