Call 0872 44 00 200 now for only 13p per minute plus your phone company’s access charge.

Ofcom rules in place since 2007 require that callers pay no more to call 03 numbers than to call 01 and 02 numbers. Nowadays, most callers will have an inclusive allowance on their landline or mobile for calling these numbers. Some landline operators and most mobile operators offer deals with inclusive calls to mobile numbers.

The Service Charge varies depending on the number called and the called party must show it wherever their number is advertised or promoted. Calls are charged from 1p up to 7p per minute, plus your phone provider’s access charge. Calls cost from 6p up to 13p per minute (plus your phone provider’s access charge).

Services provided on these numbers are regulated by Phonepayplus to provide additional protection for callers.

09 numbers are mainly used for paid for services such as international dial-around services, competitions, TV voting, horoscopes, adult chat lines and professional advice lines. Calls can cost between 10p and £6 per call and/or £3.60 per minute, plus your phone provider’s access charge.

You can bar calls to 09 numbers, as you can with other numbers.

But the charity was only able to answer two-thirds of calls made to it over the Christmas and New Year holiday period.
