An 0333 number is used by large corporations, governmental departs, or by third party organisations such as charities. An 0333 number is now treated the same as an ordinary landline number, like 01 or 02 numbers, but differs from these numbers as there is no geographical location associated with an 03 number, so calls can come from anywhere inside of the UK.

Charges to an 0333 number will be charged at the standard access charge of your network operator, changing depending on if you are using a landline or mobile phone. If you have a monthly allowance of minutes with either of these devices, then the duration of your call to an 0333 number will simply be removed from your monthly allowance of minutes. If you are using a pay as you go scheme or have run out of minutes then the you will be charged the standard access charge multiplied by the duration of your call.
