Hi all.

sorry, really stupid question but if I have 08 numbers included in my EE plan, can I phone an 0844 number and it'll be included in my minutes? Just want to be sure as I'll likely be on the phone for a while with Dell!

Thanks in advance.

So 08 numbers are free and included and you want to know if an 08 number is free and included? Is that you on the computer again grandma?

I was just looking over my plan details and saw that inclusive minutes includes 01, 02, 03 and 08 numbers. I think it depends on what plan you're on as some people get it and some not.

It's from this deal from last year:
hotukdeals.com/dea…150

For some reason, I'm still contracted until Oct next year, which is fine by me as it's a good contract at only £8/month:

Is it EE or t-mobile?? Because some old tmbile plans comes with 0844 numbers inclusive and EE comes with 0800 toll free numbers only.

Well my phone shows EE network but it was T-Mobile who I phoned last year. It seems a bit devious as it does only say 08 numbers and doesn't specify if that includes 0844 anywhere. That's why I want to be sure when I call Dell it's included. I may need to EE and see.

If you go to saynoto0870.com you can convert the 0844 number to an 01,02,03 number so it is free!

how many minutes are on your tariff

Yeah I know of that and also got We Q 4 U app but sadly Dell's customer care number doesn't have a toll-free number :-( One of the few!!

secretmsg, I have 1000 mins included in my tariff

I think you'll find that you get 0845 + 0870 numbers are but not 0844 numbers. This is because phone companies are greedy.

Ok, I did a test run earlier and just checked my EE account:

10/10/2014 09:49:00 08444443274 00:02:01 £0.00

So, it doesn't cost a dime to phone 0844 numbers. Excellent! Maybe it will be the same for others who have 08 numbers included on their tarriff. Thanks for the help guys.

That's good to hear, I'll give virgin a call later because they're charging me for 0844 numbers still.

i think 0871 mumbers are inclusive too..

Just download the app for say no to 0870 - it has a lot of alternative numbers for most 08* numbers
