0333 Phone Number – What’s That?
0333 telephone numbers are the new non-geographic (NGR) replacement for the old, rip-off, 0845 numbers.
Calls to 0845 numbers are never free (unlike geographic 01* and 02* numbers for most people), and are often very expensive when called from a mobile because they do not form part of the ‘inclusive’ contracted minutes.
Ofcom requires that 03* phone numbers always be charged at the same rate as 01* and 02* numbers; are included as part of any ‘inclusive call minutes’ or ‘discount’ packages; and call share revenue is expressly prohibited; so you (the caller) don’t get ripped off.
