Calling 0800 numbers – why mobile and landline callers prefer freephone 0800 numbers

UK mobile phone service providers no longer call for charges to 0800 and 0808 numbers. This means they are now truly freephone, regardless of whether you are calling from your mobile phone or landline. No registration or special contracts should be required for this, and 080 numbers should now be charge-free for all in the UK.

Freephone 0800 Numbers are free to call, whether you’re dialling from UK landlines and UK mobile phones. 0800 Numbers can also encourage people to phone your helpline – increasing sales and enquiries – due to their status as a freephone number.

0800 Numbers are classed as non-geographic numbers. This can help your business attract new clients from outside of your local area and across the UK as opposed to a geographic number (01 or 02 number).

Buying an 0800 number

Purchasing an 0800 number can have a range of different benefits for your business or personal brand. For one, 0800 numbers are likely the most recognisable number range in the UK, and are synonymous with freephone calls. This means that any 0800 number bought will instantly be seen by the public as something trustworthy and reputable. In addition, you will be able to point this towards whatever existing telephone number you currently have (an 01 or 02 geographic number, for example), and have the impression of being a national company – one of the main reasons why people are keen to buy 0800 numbers. We also sell other number ranges – you can see them all on our homepage here.

Advantages of a freephone 0800 number

Why would you pick an 0800 number? One of the main reasons they are trusted so highly by the UK public is that they are free to call from any mobile or landline. This means that regardless of your service provider, you will be able to pick up the phone and call an 0800 number and not have to worry about the cost. The main benefits of buying an 0800 number for your business are:

0800 numbers generally receive more calls

This is linked to the fact that 0800 numbers are completely freephone, which means people can call any business without worrying about it hitting them in the pocket. There is also the fact that it is one of the most long running number ranges in the telecoms industry, meaning it has built up a bank of trust with the British public – who are almost completely clear about the call costs and related issues, which may not be the case with newer number ranges.

0800 numbers can give an edge of your competition

0800 numbers are perceived to look professional by the British public. Especially compared to a geographic number (01/02 numbers, for example, with area codes), an 0800 number can allow a smaller business to give the impression that they are much larger any more professional than they are.

0800 numbers are low cost

For all that they offer for a business, 0800 numbers are a relatively small outlay. From only £9.99 per month, you can have your own 0800 number with a range of functionality options available. This is a quick win for many businesses, as well as giving your customers peace of mind when they dial. Still among the most popular number ranges in the UK, buying a freephone 0800 number is a quick and relatively cheap way to grow the brand of your business.

0800 numbers generally receive more calls

For the above reasons, the British public are more likely to pick up the phone and call a freephone 0800 number than they are, say, an 0870 number which will charge them for each minute they are on the call. This is why a business looking to generate incoming phone calls, or simply looking to up customer satisfaction, is likely to buy and use a freephone 0800 number
