In other words, the first 50 minutes of calls received whilst diverted to a mobile are completely free of charge. Any calls over and above the 50 minute allowance are charged at 8p per minute.
Can 0800 numbers help with marketing and advertising?
0800 numbers can most definitely help with advertising and marketing campaigns. 0800 numbers are free to call and are an ideal way to generate more calls and enquiries that convert into sales. People are more likely to call 0800 numbers and free phone numbers to ask questions, which then becomes a sales opportunity.
Our 0800 numbers come with call data reports with the following information and more:
- How many calls 0800 numbers have received
- The duration or length of 0800 number calls
- The frequency of calls to 0800 numbers

What are memorable 0800 numbers and standard 0800 numbers?
0800 numbers come in many different flavours and varieties. Whilst they are all free phone numbers at the core, some are more desirable than others due to the number combinations they contain.
Here at alphaTALK, we have divided our 0800 number ranges and 0800 number prefixes into 4 different categories:
- Standard 0800 numbers - Free connection
- Silver 0800 numbers - £50 one-off connection fee
- Gold 0800 numbers - £99 one-off connection fee
- Platinum 0800 numbers - contact us for details
To give you an idea of how our 0800 numbers are divided into the different categories, take a look at this table:
|Standard 0800 numbers example||0800 007 5098|
|Silver 0800 numbers example||0800 007 5055|
|Gold 0800 numbers example||0800 007 5050|
|Platinum 0800 numbers example||0800 007 5000|
From the example 0800 numbers above, the more memorable 0800 numbers fall into the higher Gold and Platinum categories. Silver provides a good balance between cost and how easy they are to remember. Finally, standard 0800 numbers are randomly generated like your normal home telephone number.
Memorable 0800 numbers are incredibly sought after, particularly by businesses that feature numbers in their names, such as 123 Computers or London Plumbing 2000. These two companies may wish to seek out 0800 007 0123 and 0800 007 2000 for use in their advertising and marketing.
How memorable an 0800 number is can also be important if they are to be displayed on static advertising, such as billboards, posters, signs and so on. People only have a moment to glance at the number and depending on how easy or hard the 0800 number is to remember can determine whether they call or not.
Is it free to call 0800 numbers from mobiles?Largely, it is not free to call 0800 numbers, free phone numbers or 0808 numbers from mobile phones. It is best that you consult with your mobile network regarding costs to call 0800 numbers because this can vary dramatically from one to another.
However, Ofcom has recently come out of consultation with the networks and it has been decided that 0800 numbers will be free to call from mobile phones as early as late 2014.
0800 numbers and 0808 numbers - are they the same?0800 numbers and 0808 numbers are treated identically to each other, so 0808 numbers are also free to call from landline telephones. 0808 numbers were introduced by Ofcom due to substantial demand for 0800 numbers and a worry that they would some day run out of capacity.
If there is a specific free phone number that you need, an 0808 number may be easier to source than the same equivalent 0800 number, i.e. 0808 222 2222 will be more likely to be available than 0800 222 2222.
Which companies and organisations use 0800 numbers?
Companies of all shapes and sizes use 0800 numbers. This includes the largest, national businesses that may be looking to secure every potential sales enquiry available down to a plumber working on his own that wishes to provide potential clients with a free and easy way to contact him.
Below are some examples of companies that utilise 0800 numbers in their advertising efforts:
- - Apple's 0800 number: 0800 048 0408
- - Tesco's 0800 number: 0800 505 555
- - Lloyds TSB's 0800 number: 0800 096 9779
The technology giant Apple provides an 0800 number on their website for potential buyers to call. Despite the easy to use website, they still feel the need to give callers the best possible experience by providing an 0800 number. They adopt the same strategy in different countries where a free phone number is available, for example 1-800 toll free numbers are used in the USA.
Tesco uses an 0800 number for any store related customer service enquiries. Their supermarkets are still their number one priority and providing a free phone 0800 number is the best thing they can do for their customers.
Lloyds TSB provides an 0800 number for customers that have lost their debit or credit cards. It is harrowing experience to lose a wallet or to be a victim of a robbery and by proving an 0800 number, Lloyds TSB has ensured that they can be contacted for free, even from public pay phones.
0800 numbers - what are they?0800 numbers can be known by a number of names:
- - 0800 free phone numbers
- - Free phone numbers or freephone numbers
- - Free phone 0800 numbers or freephone 0800 numbers
- - Free to call numbers
- - UK toll free numbers
- - 0808 numbers
Customers and clients are always grateful when companies provide an 0800 number, particularly when a call may be lengthy with customer services for example.
How do 0800 numbers work?We're often asked how 0800 numbers work. The mechanism behind 0800 numbers is quite simple and it's best to think of an 0800 number as something that sits on top of another phone number; this may be your home landline, your office landline or your mobile phone.
When a caller dials your 0800 number, the network will connect the call and it will intelligently know to re-route the call to whichever phone number you have your 0800 number connected to.

For the caller, the transition from 0800 number to your true phone number is seamless and they will be completely unaware.
If I dial out, will it show my 0800 number?Unfortunately, dialling out will not show your 0800 number - only the true number below. You would need to invest in a phone system to be able to show your 0800 number when making outbound calls. This is exactly the same way that call centres are able to achieve this and display their 0800 number.
Do you use Tier 1 0800 numbers?Yes, we only use Tier 1 providers for our 0800 numbers. This ensures that our 0800 numbers have incredibly reliable uptime.
How much do 0800 numbers cost?Our 0800 numbers present good value for money for businesses, big and small. Our standard grade 0800 numbers have no connection fee with more memorable 0800 numbers available for a one-off connection fee.
A £7.97 service charge (plus VAT) applies each month.
Can I port my existing 0800 numbers to alphaTALK?Yes, it is possible to port your existing 0800 numbers to us. Many businesses that have grown and expanded choose to do this either to save money or to consolidate all of their telecoms solutions so that we look after everything for them.
Our 0800 numbers are some of the cheapest around and we provide a generous amount of incoming call minutes to our 0800 numbers. Other providers tend to charge per minute or second for every call to their 0800 numbers, which can turn out to be rather expensive in the long run.
