Incase you can't see in the pic , to opt in text "0800" to 97886

Or use WeQ4U app and just call them out of your existing inclusive minutes

It's a scam - for a start, there's that website that lets you find the REAL number.

Plus all the 'official' helplines (doctors, local gov etc), are switching to 01,02,03 numbers (which are included with standard numbers).

That's why Vodafone has suddenly decided to help you with scam numbers - hoping you'll forget to cancel when they mostly disappear.

Plenty of online sites offering 0800 etc alternative numbers for free - and as scoopy2scoops says, they just get deducted from your normal plan minutes that way, so no need to pay extra. Just Google 'say no to 0800' and it will show you a few different ones.

Didn't know about weq4u , thanks scoops , say no to 0870 is good if u can find an alt number which isnt always the case.
And my doctors arent changing their 0844 number and we have to call them all the time

They haven't "suddenly" decided, there have been various 08 packages across most of the networks for years now.

Saynoto0870 doesn't always provide a working landline number, and there are many companies using 08 numbers that aren't moving to 03 numbers. Not to mention, the "official" numbers have been advised that they should move to an 03 number - there is nothing forcing them to do so.

Finally, 08 numbers are not scams... If you're unaware of the costs of calling them despite them being completely standard and widespread then it's probably best if you don't trust yourself to run a mobile phone contract sensibly. If you are aware, then it isn't a scam, it's just irritating.

Well, they're 'suddenly promoting' it then.

Most public services ARE being 'forced to' - the government has announced that they WILL be changing.

And of course it's a scam, when most people use mobiles, and rather than 0800 being free, it's excluded from most contracts and is charged at eye-watering rates.

Plus many 08** numbers are legalised theft from ANY phone.

.... now tell us who you work for ...

No they haven't suddenly started promoting it... The text the OP got clearly implies that they recognised the OP is calling 08 numbers from their phone so suggested this package to them.

Nope. The story you are referring to is the government telling national government departments to switch to landline numbers - before no specific date, with no specific punishment if they don't. It does not apply to other public bodies or doctors surgeries.

Look up the definition of "scam". It's irritating, you could also describe it as extortionate, but it is categorically not a scam.

Ill vote hot OP as not every 08 number on these apps mentioned actually has record of the standard 01, 02 number behind it

Often weq4u tells me it doesnt have an alternative number and this vodafone add in is great value as most 08 calls are up to 40p per minute so it doesnt take long or many minutes to rack up £2.50 of call charges

Or go with T-mobile and have them in inclusive minutes

Sure; but missing out on the cheapest packages means you're often still paying more than you should be ... I've nothing against T-mobile, but they don't always have the best bargains in contracts.

if only all the nay-sayers agreed with you Jase , hope it helps mate

Good deal. Forget the haters who think every number is freely available as that's not the case. £2.50pm would save some people money for numbers that can't be found free and hassle trying to find them!

So the phone companies rip you off, then offer to sell you a way to reduce the ripoff - and you reckon that's a good deal?

Can I interest you in some prime building land in Florida?

Didnt post for votes , and all the people who voted cold because of say no to 0870 and the other app.
Both are good if you can find an alternative number , in the case of my doctors surgery , you can't.
Therefore this deal will help me and others , where as planks like you cant see the benefit.
If you can find a cheaper way to call my doctors or any nhs numbers feel free to post , until then keep your mouth shut.
Ps i use the word "fool" but there are a million other words i could call you but i'd get banned and u aint worth it

For anyone who isn't on Vodafone you can swap your free Sky Talk abroad calls for 0845s on your landline

As previously posted In dec.

Don't know why that blanked out - it's a hotukdeals page?! Search for sky :s

Just a reminder, you can call 0800 numbers using your inclusive minutes by using 0800 Buster

Also, the mobile phone companies have been ordered to make 0800 numbers truly free from June of next year.
