Virgin mobile has joined the bandwagon in ensuring that all calls made to a 0800 number are free of charge. Whether you are a Pay-As-You-Go customer, a contract member or even a landline holder, then all calls made to any 0800 number – you can purchase 0800 numbers through our site – are free.
The removal of charges to this number has not only been made to Virgin but all over telephone network companies.
Calling 0800 numbers on Virgin Mobile
Before July 2015 anyone wanting to make a call using a 0800 number would be charged a substantial amount per minute, however, since the increase in consumers contacting numbers using 0800, the additional charge to these numbers has been dropped. It is now easier for consumers to contact 0800 numbers without receiving extra charges on their monthly or daily bills.
This price removal has led to customers being more loyal to their existing provider, knowing that all 0800 charges have been dropped across the board in the telephone network industry.

Virgin Mobile has joined the majority of mobile networks and companies in ensuring that all calls made to any number beginning 0800 is free and you will not be charged, whether you are on contract or a pay-as-you-go customer.
Previously in 2015 any Virgin Mobile customer making a call to an 0800 number would be charged a hefty amount per minute, but since the charges are no longer on going. So if you need to call an 0800 number it is now absoultely free on Virgin Mobile.
This price removal has led to a lot of Virgin Mobile customers staying with the provider, and it has made it easier for customers to use 0800 numbers because they are free from the fear of having to pay for a service that no longer charges. They now don’t worry about receiving their phone bills to find there are extra charges for calling an 0800 number.
The change has also prompted many businesses and other organisations to move from 08 numbers to cheaper numbers starting at 03. Therefore 03 numbers will be charged the same as 01 and 02 numbers across all UK providers, so the charge would be similiar if all free minutes had been used.
