0800Buster for UK mobile users

We just found this service through twitter.
Very useful if your mobile provider charges you for calls to 0800, 0808 or 0500 "freephone" numbers.
Here is what they say (quoting from

Call 0800, 0808 & 0500 Numbers Free* From Your Mobile

Most mobile phone providers in the UK still charge their users for calls to 0800, 0808 and 0500 numbers. 0800Buster lets you call these numbers using your mobile’s inclusive minutes, by providing you with a UK landline number to dial instead.

No registration or set-up is necessary, and the service is completely free*. Just dial 01249 20 0800, enter the full free-phone number you want to call at the prompt, then press #—it’s that simple!


* “Free” assumes you receive inclusive minutes to UK landlines as part of your mobile phone contract. 0800Buster access numbers should be included in these free minutes, and should otherwise be charged at your provider’s normal UK landline accepts no liability for any costs incurred from using our service.

Best wishes from

Where we quote callthrough rates, we believe (based on the web pages of the companies we list) that calls are charged at the indicated price from a BT residential line.
BT apply a call set-up fee of 12.5 pence for each call made.
Other network operators' charges may vary.
You can check rates from BT landlines using BT's document

You must have the bill-payer's permission before using any of the services or callthrough access numbers listed on our pages.
