    Premium rate phone-call numbers.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 13 Nov 2017, 9:41 am

    Now that there are many numbers that are  higher than local calls, it pays to know which of these numbers are the high ones.

    After a search I found the official call-charges page from .gov.uk    HERE

    This is a good set of numbers to have at the ready as often we do not know that call charges can be much more expensive per minute than others.

    That is good information to know. Thanks Paps.

    There are now so many "premium"- type numbers out there now it is difficult to know which ones are expensive and even which ones are free.

    Oh, and, what's the difference between 0800 numbers and 08000 numbers.

    The main difference is that while all numbers starting with 08 are free numbers, it is only the 0800 numbers that are totally free of private additions.

    HERE is the solution from Yahoo Answers.

    My pleasure Angie.

    OH...and BTW... all of the 08 numbers are not actually free as they are subsidised by the companies that have registered to use them. It is THEY who pay the up-front premium in order to make the calls free for the user.
