Cost of 0343 number

Hey folks, I have to call an 0343 number (specifically, TfL on 0343 222 1234), and I can't find too much information how much it costs me when I'm in a goodybag. I can see from http://giffgaff.com/index/pricing that it's 10p/min when I'm not in a goodybag, but as I have a £10 bag active right now, I'm not sure if this comes from my minutes or from my credit allowance. From http://giffgaff.com/goodybags/10pound-goodybag it looks like it should be included in my minutes allowance, but wanted to double check while I've been sat on hold ten minutes already.

 

Cheers :smileyhappy:

No, it won't be in your allowance. Only UK mobile and geographical numbers are included in goodybags. All others are paid for from your airtime balance.

 


Sorry, I was looking at some out of date info :smileysurprised:

Re: Cost of 0343 number

Hi, the costs of calling other UK mobiles, landlines (starting 01, 02, 03) 'are' included in your goodybag minutes allowance. Therefore it will deduct minutes from your goodybag when making these calls.

Otherwise, they indeed cost at 10p per minute if you do not have a live goodybag with minutes.

Cheers. Could you elaborate on what consistutes a 'geographical' number? I believe the number in question is a UK landline.

 

EDIT: Oh, hold on, conflicting info. :smileyfrustrated:

hi there,

I'm afraid that no, this isn't included in your goodybag. So yes, it'll cost 10p/min from your credit

EDIT: hmm just checked oin the pricing page and actually it appears that 03 numbers are included! (sorry my mistakee!)

Re: Cost of 0343 number

Hi

This page should hel[ with call charges to TFL: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/termsandconditions/27604.aspx

It wont come out of your goodybag if you call that number but if you use a site called http://saynoto0870.com it will.
If my post helped you why not accept as solution or give it a kudo!

Re: Cost of 0343 number

@discoravens

some conflicting advice here so i thought i'd call it and see

It uses goodybag minutes. I called it twice,
took a minute each time
