"070 numbers are "personal numbers". They are often used as a contact number that can be redirected to a mobile, landline, international number or voicemail as required. They are attractive to the owner because they are often completely free to set up and run, and if you change mobile number or move house you don't need to give everyone a new number. However, anyone calling these numbers pays for the convenience, as they are extremely expensive to call.

Don't call them back unless you have a very good reason!"

What was it for? how do you know its premium rate?

Those are personal numbers, you get charged to ring them,
Basically it's a con, they ring you and hang up, you look and think it's a mobile number ring it back and get charged, which then gets put in thier pocket.

only 30 seconds, but my dads will go crazy if its alot ! can these numbers charge what they like ? thanks for all help for far

Premium numbers can cost anywhere between 10p & £1.50 a minute as far as I'm aware. Sometimes there's a connection charge too. If you weren't on too long it shouldn't be too expensive. Does the advertisement not state what the cost of calling the number is?

The most it could be is £3

if your lucky it will go unoticed, depends if your parents go over the bill with a fine tooth comb. They might spot the number and check it out, is the number you called more worrying than the cost of the call? Cos at 30secs you looking at £1.50 max probably.

No doesn't state

They are quite smart post a good looking advert when someone is intrested they ring and get charged a bomb

they use these number on Freeadds Web site. i was caught when i was looking for a car and ringing to arrange viewing. i dont remember seeing anywhere about them being expensive to call but i'm sure its in the small print somewhere....

what was the advert then?

I though mobiles were all 079... 070 would immediately catch my attention

Don't think it'll break the bank, at worst I'm sure you can pay them back.

I thought you were gonna say the exclaimation key was stuck on your keboard.
