Freephone 0800 numbers with Skype - also US Toll Free

57
Found 13th Aug 2013
I don't have a Landline and get irritated by 0800 numbers - not free from a mobile! (or most anyway).

I've used 0800buster.co.uk/ before with very mixed results, usually fine but occasionally nightmarish and disconnects constantly.

I've recently found out that you can phone any free number in the world free from Skype - 0800 UK numbers or Toll Free US numbers etc.

You can get Skype on PC, mobile or tablet for free!

@Maggieaggie - It should just work, no need to credit Skype.

you need to type in +44800 xxxxxxx

i've tried various 0500 / 0800 / 0844 apps and such but the most useful one is weQ4u app.

Didn't know this, hot!

The person you are calling requires Skype?

Cool...and HOT. Thank you

No, you can call any landline, mobile, etc. that has a phone number.

Why not use Weq4U WeQ4U 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/

Thank you (_;)

Weq4U does not do some 0845 numbers like 08452863322 which is pestering me so wanted to know who it was ....

I've not been able to use skype all today (mobile & PC which often happens).

GiffGaff 0p to 0800/0500/0808 - so I know which I will be sticking to.

Thank you the weq4u have downloaded.

Already knew this, hot anyway

very useful to know, cheers

thanks

do you have to pay for a gifgaff sim that works?

Thank OP, Heat added

when I open my app, and I want to make an 0800 call, do I write +44 0800, or +44800?

Relievo for all international calls you always knock off the first zero and as you're dialling internationally the freephone number even though it's a UK number +44800 .... is correct. For a short list of other countries including USA toll free (freephone) numbers have a look here.

Nice find! Thanks OP!

Thanx a lot! Use ful information

Very handy! 0800buster/sayno does get a bit tedious!

Nice one!!! Heat added.

I was a little unsure.
