Calling all UK FooCaller’s!
Finally, you can call 08xx numbers from your mobile, without worrying how much you’ll get charged!
We all know how costly it can be to call a customer service line or many other 08xx numbers from a mobile. Whether you pay monthly or top-up your mobile, your operator will charge you silly amounts of money for those calls. Typically, calls to these types of numbers can be long calls too, so the costs really can mount up. And even 0800 ‘freephone’ numbers aren’t free from a mobile! Many network providers charge AT LEAST 20p per minute to call 08 numbers. This is where FooCall can save you a LOT of money.
For instance, calling an 0800 number from your mobile directly via your mobile operator, will cost you 7p to 31p per minute. If you have FooCall installed, you can place the call using your inclusive minutes, and pay only 1p per minute!
How often have you found yourself placed on hold when calling about a utility bill or to make a booking. After 10 minutes of being on hold, you could have paid over £2 with your mobile operator…. or just 10p with FooCall!
