How much are 0300 numbers? Do they come off your googybag minutes or are they chargable.

03 numbers must be charged at the same rate as 01 and 02 numbers and must be included in the same bundles, discounts and whatever by Ofcom decree.  030 numbers are for the public sector and other recognised services, 033 numbers are for everything else.  They were introduced because of public distrust of most ranges beginning 08.  There are also migration ranges eg an 0845 number may have an equivalent 0345 number.

0300 numbers are supposedly "freephone" & are not the same as 01 02 numbers.

But i'm not sure how gg deal with these.

Maybe someone who knows the definitive answer to this could respond!

Not freephone but charged at same rate as normal 01 and 02 numbers as mentioned earlier in thread.

No, they are not.  They are charged in the same way as 01 and 02 numbers.

0300 I think are none geographical freephone numbers and if correct then they would be free, people quoting 03 as being in the group 01 02, are not the same as these groups are geographical numbers and are different.
