** You usually have to dial the number without the first '0'.
It is also free for Pay Monthly customers to call O2 Customer Service numbers.
Ofcom has introduced 03 numbers as an alternative to chargeable 08 numbers e.g 0870.
Calls to 03 numbers will cost the same as other standard fixed line numbers (starting 01 or 02), and are included as part of any inclusive or free minutes allowances on O2 tariffs.
