Can it be true?? 0800 on your mobile for free!

Ok so it uses up your minutes, so not strictly free, but then none of the calls from your mobile are.

Here is the email word for word that I recieved, tell everyone about it and please send them to this blog for other handy tips and freebies that are useful to someone with a business!

Kind Regards



I’m sure you are aware that you can’t call an 0800 free-phone number for free using your mobile. We think that’s wrong, so we thought about it for a while and have come up with a crafty way of making these calls for free, as they were originally designed to be.

Is it really totally free?

Yes – if you have a contract mobile package with included minutes to UK geographic numbers like 01 and 02. (Even if you use a Pay-as-you-go mobile it’s normally cheaper than calling the 0800 directly; but you need to check with your provider.)

How does it work?

1. Dial our access number 029 2000 0800 (add it to your address book)
2. When we answer, just enter the 0800 number you want to call and wait to be connected.

That’s it.

How can you do it for free?

We get a tiny fraction of a penny for the call from the network operator, not enough to matter but enough to cover our costs. But we mostly do it simply because we can, because it’s quite cool and because we think mobile phone pricing is a rip-off.

This works for 0808 and 0500 free-phone numbers too.

ps You don’t need to be a Voipfone customer to use this trick, tell your friends; send them this email!

pps If you call an 0800 number a lot, you can save it in your address book along with the access number.

So let’s say you call abc company who’s number is 08001234567, you enter abc company into your mobile, with the number as:


some phones need a ‘+’ instead of the ‘p’ (it adds a pause when dialling)
