Saying 'no' to 0870 numbers – and other phone things

If you don't like ringing non-geographical alternative telephone numbers – because they often cost more to ring than normal land line numbers – the Say no to 0870 numbers site lists many well known companies and their equivalent geographical numbers, with alternatives for 0800, 0808, 0844, 0845, 0870 and 0871 numbers.

There's lots of information about phone call costs on the website – this link to Google search is a good starting place.
