Hello,

I wanted to ask for Tesco Mobile, for the Pay Monthly Contract which includes minutes e.g 500 minutes

Are 0845 numbers covered IN the 500 minutes or is this EXTRA Charge? and NOT covered?

Thanks

No they are not. 25p/min access charge from Tesco + service charge from whoever you're calling

Doh!!! Why on earth do they advertise as "500 Free Minutes" You would assume, the minutes will be for anything numbers


Thanks

No, included minutes are always only for UK mobile and standard landline numbers. It's the same on any network

Use Saynoto0870 and find a direct number, usually the best way round it.

Nowadays it is only Virgin who allow you to use your inclusive minutes to ANY 084*/087* number, even the most expensive 0871 numbers.

T-Mobile used to do this on older contracts as well, but this has now stopped since the rebranding to EE.

All other networks only provide free access to 0800/0808 numbers, as required by law.

Inclusive minutes provided by networks generally only applies to numbers that begin with 01/02/03 and 07 - with the exception of 070 and some other 07 numbers on certain virtual networks.

As mentioned above, if you need to call 08 numbers then you can either use SayNoTo0870 or WeQ4U.
