Free numbers:
We also believe that a free number should be just that, so all 0800 and similar numbers really are free.

True but 0300 are not similar to 0800. Just like 0845 aren't

Similar means 0500 and 0808 NOT 0300 or 0700 but saying "similar" isn't terribly helpful to anyone!!

Re: are 0300 numbers free

What is an 0300 number?

These have been launched instead of 0870s and are a massive improvement. 0870s, while called National Rate, are actually cut down premium rate numbers (see Saynoto0870), which the company being called can get a cut of the profits from; yet 0300 numbers are the real thing and there’s no profit sharing.

What you pay on 0300s…

The same cost as a normal call. Whatever tariff you’re on the cost of an 0300 number is the same as calling a normal phone number.
If your calls are free, it’s free. So if you’ve got free inclusive calls, then calling 0300 won’t cost you. E.g. If you’re on BT’s free evening calls package then call 0300 in the evening and the call is free; but if you pay for a call in the day, you’ll pay for an 0300 during the day.
This works on mobiles too. If you’ve inclusive minutes on your mobile the 0300 number will be included in that.
I try to give good info but remember I am just another customer.

Re: are 0300 numbers free

So many odd replies on here!

 

03 numbers were introduced by Ofcom as a non-geographic alternative to chargeable 08 numbers such as 0870. Calls to 03 numbers cost the same as calls to standard geographic numbers (i.e. those beginning 01 or 02).

Unlike any other non geographic number range, calls to 03 numbers must also be included in any inclusive call minute packages or discount schemes offered by fixed and mobile network operators and from payphones.

Revenue sharing is specifically disallowed on 03 numbers. 030 numbers are designated for use only by public bodies and non profit organisations. A list of organisations eligible for allocation of 0300 numbers is published on the Ofcom website.
