High Phone Charges "Sting" People in Dorset


7:46am 20th March 2014

Do you know how much it costs to phone 0800 and 0845 numbers? Nearly half of people in Dorset's region don't according to a recent survey.

The YouGov figures show 47% of us have been "shocked" by the price of our monthly mobile phone bill and don't realise the expensive numbers cost.

0800 and 0845's are free from a landline but have very pricey per minute tariffs.

Experts estimate 0800 and 0845 calls cost UK customers 600 million pounds a year.
