Calling 0845 numbers from mobile phones can be frustratingly expensive. Even Lycamobile, who is quite an affordable company that offers good deals on long distance calls, does not include these numbers in their inclusive minutes.
If you need to call an 0845 number from a Lycamobile SIM it will cost you at least 23 pence per minute. In some cases there will be an additional service fee on top. These numbers are usually helplines or call centers, so ask the agent to call you back, or request a local rate number if possible so that you can avoid excessive call charges.
