    My last T-Mobile and EE bills have had OFCOM flyers in with them about free 0800 numbers.

    Anybody dare to try?
    I always publish a geographic number when setting up conference calls besides the 0800 number. Especially for us poor contractors who have free minutes but pay tulip loads for 0800

    Also brought in at the same time, if anyone has a company website with an 08 or 03 number on they need to state the calling costs now
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Same with GiffGaff, and Skype lets you call 0800 numbers free as well.
