Why? Quite simply, over 80% of the UK population recognise that 0800 numbers are totally free to call; all day every day, and wherever they're calling from or to. In short, 'freefone' is now a daily feature of everyday language.

Planet Numbers 0800 and 0808 numbers: how they operate
You simply choose which of your existing phone numbers you want your Planet Numbers 0800 or 0808 to be linked to. So when your customers call your number, all their calls are instantly and automatically redirected to your selected 'destination' number. And, for maximum convenience and flexibility, you can change this number as often as you'd like to - absolutely free.
This means that, for example, if you move to new premises or you need your 0800/0808 calls rerouted to another phone for a while (perhaps when you're away from the office on business), your freephone is unchanged and your clients are none the wiser.
You don't need to buy additional kit or rent additional phone lines
Naturally, you can continue using the phone your 0800 or 0808 number is linked to, exactly as you did previously - that's for incoming and outgoing calls. All the call rerouting is done by Planet Numbers remotely (and automatically) so your normal phone service carries on uninterrupted.
For the same reason, this means that when choose Planet Numbers you never need to buy any additional phones or equipment or rent any additional lines from your telephone service provider.
How much do our 0800 and 0808 numbers cost?
Order online and we have waived all connection fees.
You only pay a small ongoing management fee, paid monthly of just £15 plus, naturally, the cost of your incoming calls. You can pay automatically by direct debit. The first 1,500 minutes of 0800 calls diverted to your UK landline each month are free. Thereafter you pay just 3p per minute to receive them and, to keep your call costs to a minimum, we bill you by the second, not by the minute. Incoming call charges are, however, rounded up to the nearest penny to keep things sensible on your bill!
With your online dashboard it's incredibly easy to control your 0800 and 0808 numbers
The Planet Numbers online dashboard makes managing the day-to-day operations of your freephone numbers a piece of cake. So, for example, say you needed to reroute all your incoming 0800 calls to a different phone line during the weekend: a couple of clicks on the online dashboard and you're done! Want to redirect your 0800 number to your head office while you're there on business? No problem. It really is that simple.
Or divert to your mobile instead
If you're often away from your main premises, perhaps meeting with customers, clients and suppliers - particularly if you're a small or one-man business, you might like to pick up your 0800/0808 calls on your mobile instead of on a landline.
Needless to say, your callers will have no idea they are calling a mobile and naturally they won't pay the normal charges for doing so! When you choose a Planet Numbers 0800, you can divert your calls to a mobile of your choice whenever you need to, either permanently or just every now and then.
Moving to new premises? Take your 0800/0808 with you!
With a Planet Numbers freephone number, when you move to a new office or new premises, you don't have to reprint your promotional materials or amend your website to show a new phone number. This is because your 0800 or 0808 number remains constant even though your actual geographic location may have changed dramatically - perhaps to the other end of the UK! To your customers, you're still in the same place you always were.
