the next time you need to phone a

company or service think before you dial

numbers that start oh eight double 408

four five oh eight 700 or ra seven one

will cost you more than geographical

numbers that begin Oh 102 or oh three

calls to these numbers will cost up to

ten PM innit

so you could see your phone bill shoot

up if you have a complicated inquiry or

more likely have to hold for awhile well

Oh eight seven Oh calls must be included

in all call bundles or inclusive minutes

phone providers can get out of this by

making the exclusion clear in their

advertising or promotional info plus

other Oh 8 numbers are likely to pour

outside any bundle you enjoy from your

home phone provider and will almost

definitely be excluded from any free

minutes you receive from your mobile
