If you're still paying through the nose to call 0844 numbers you need to get the 0844 Wizard
Calling an 0844 number from your mobile introduces a cost outside of your bundled minutes. With the 0844 Wizard you can reduce the cost by utilising your bundled minutes.
Local rate numbers such as 01, 02 and 03 are included in your bundled minutes but are usually not allowed to be used with calling 08 numbers.
Well, now they can, with the 0844 Wizard.
In some cases calling 0844 numbers is more expensive that calling 0845 numbers leaving you with a bigger dent in your wallet or purse at the end of the month
Wouldn't you like to have a bit more cash to play with instead?
Now you can save money calling 0844 numbers by downloading and using the 0844 Wizard.
The 0844 Wizard, like the 0845 Wizard is an app with a built in credit account (Wizard Account) that allows you to add credit via iTunes in app payments.
The Wizard Account is created In-App. You are always in control of this credit, you will always have visibility of what credit is available and topping up is easy.
The technical stuff..
Ok, you've now created an account and have enough credit to make a phone call. So, how does it work?
You dial an 0844 number. The app will tell you what it would normally cost you (an average across all major networks), it will also tell you what it will cost you in Wizard credit . You then decide you're happy to make the call, the 0844 Wizard dials a local rate number (01,02 or 03*) which in turn (the magic part) connects you to the 0844 number you want.
If you dial an 0845 number the app will simply ask you to switch to or download the 0845 Wizard.
The cost of the local rate connection is taken from your network minutes (the call your phone appears to make) whilst the call charge for calling the 0844 number (The Wizardry bit) comes out of your Wizard Account.
The 0844 Wizard uses Barritel's business-grade network to route the calls for less, saving you money to talk longer or call more often.
You can use the same login details with any of our other apps that require iTunes pre-payment. As your balance is associated with your account, not with a specific app, you are able to use it across all of our apps.
To start making calls to 0844 numbers you will need to use iTunes to add credit to the Wizard Account.
*The cost of calling 01, 02 and 03 numbers are normally included at no extra cost on most mobile phone contracts however PAYG and business users will need to check if this still applies.

Ratings and Reviews
not all it should be
0844 is not all it should be its a standard app so for example it tells me the 0844 number I have selected is 36 pence but it could be less as this particular number is only 3 pence per minute to a landline. It states its save me about half of that but its not necessarily true. The app actually does not measure the rate just an average rate. Am I wrong on this?
Such an easy way to save on 0844 calls.
I’m so pleased with this app. I regularly have to call an 0844 number for our workplace security monitoring service. It would normally cost me 55p before they’ve even picked up the phone and then the per minute rate on top of that! Usually amounting to over 60p for a very brief call. Tried this for the first time and the same call cost me 9p!! Amazing! No problems using the app whatsoever. Sign up was a doddle and credit is topped up using your iTunes account so all feels very safe.
Saved me money!
I don't like calling 0844 numbers at any time but this wizard makes the calls a lot cheaper, so that's good. ps only works if you have bundled minutes. Update - it stopped working on one update, but it's fine now.
