How 0800 numbers work

There’s no need to buy any new equipment when you get a Planet Numbers freephone number. We simply connect your new 0800 to an existing landline or mobile of your choice. (And you can change this whenever you want to.) Naturally, you can still use the destination phone to make and receive calls using its original number.

Your calls are billed by the second

Don’t just buy your 0800 number from anyone. Some suppliers will bill your 0800 calls by the minute. So you pay for a minute even if the call lasts a few seconds! We bill you by the second (rounded up to the nearest penny to keep things sensible) to make sure you get maximum value from your 0800 number.

Add automated call handling to give customers an even better response

There’s more to our 0800 numbers than free calls for your customers. Automated call handling is a great way to add a sophisticated range of virtual switchboard services to your 0800s, from just £5 a month. These include custom greeting messages, automated out-of-hours rerouting to mobiles, call queuing and voicemail-to-email. Find out more about our extra features

How Do I Buy an 0800 Number?

Simply select a number from our online selection above, and complete the online ordering process. You don't need a credit card, and we offer a 30 day free trial, so you've nothing to lose.

Are 0800 Numbers Free to Call?

Yes, absolutely. Since 2015, 0800 numbers are completely free to call from both mobiles and landlines.

Are 0800 Numbers Included In Mobile Phone Number Inclusive Minutes Packages?

Just as with calling from a landline, calling freephone phone numbers is free.

Are 0800 Numbers Free on Mobiles?

Yes, they are. It is just like calling from a landline, where they are also free.

Can 0800 Numbers Be Called from Abroad?

Calling 0800 numbers from abroad (outside the UK) is possible, but not guaranteed from all countries. These calls will incur charges such that these calls would no longer be “freephone” calls. You’ll be charged international rates which will vary, depending on where you’re calling from. Most UK businesses will indicate on their websites that calls to their 0800 number are free when calling from within the UK but that charges will apply when calling the 0800 number from overseas. Please note that when calling 0800 numbers from abroad (outside the UK), you need to dial 00 44 800 XXX XXXX, where 44 is the UK country dialling code and the leading 0 is omitted from the 0800 number.

How Do 0800 Numbers Work?

0800 numbers are free to phone for the caller and since 2015 have been free to call from both landlines and mobiles. So they are essentially paid for by businesses and organisations to incentivise people to call a number, by making it free. For businesses, 0800 numbers are rented on a monthly basis, with calls being paid for (by the business). This per minute call charge differs according to factors like, where the caller is, and whether they have called from mobile or landline.

Where to Buy 0800 Numbers?

Since 1999 Planet Numbers has been providing businesses with memorable 0800 numbers and is one of the UK's most trusted suppliers.

Who Pays for 0800 Numbers?

0800 Numbers are paid for by the company or organisation using the number. They generally pay a monthly fee and a fee per minute. However, it does not have to be expensive. For example, Planet Numbers charge only £9.99 GBP / month and this includes a bundle of free calls from landlines and mobiles.
