Calling 08 numbers on your mobile is expensive. Let us try and help you save money.
There is simply no need to spend up to 41 pence per minute calling 0845, 0800, 0844 and 0870 numbers from your mobile any-more. Barritel have developed a money saving app called the '08 Wizard', an app full of the most popular businesses using 08 numbers and their alternative local rate 01/02 and 03 numbers.
When you search for, or dial an 08 number, the app will see if it's in the database and if it's there, will present you with the local rate number to call. Call charges for the local rate numbers are taken from your bundled minutes instead of your wallet.
· Search on a name or number
· Autosuggest on company names
· Contacts integration
· 0800 Wizard function for 0800, 0500 and 0808 calls
There is no difference to the call, you're simply dialling the number directly instead of going through an 08.
We are always adding the most requested numbers to our database and currently have over 27,000 to choose from. There are of course therefore a vast number of businesses we don't have alternative numbers for, but there's still enough for most people to save a lot of money!
We're confident there is a number or 2 for you to save money on!
All successful calls will be made across the businesses 01 or 02 local rate number or a dynamic 03 number (which costs the same as an 01/02 and is taken from your bundled minutes). PAYG and people outside their bundled minutes will be charged at normal local rates. Users who choose to dial the 084 and 087 numbers direct will be charged the full cost by their network provider!

Ratings and Reviews
Have tried to download (after paying) to my iPhone 8+ but stopped short of end of download circle
Easy to search for and dial
79p to get a cheap number to call. Only used it the once. Seems like a good deal. On the phone to the bank and mortage company for a while using the other number they give that is cheaper to call on pay as you go phones.
My go to numbers app
Seems the update has made it bigger with more numbers available. Handy for insurance companies and my boiler company who insist on using an 0870 number. 79p is saved in the first 2 minutes. This is a favourite of mine.
