UK Calling - 0800 numbers "free" from 1 July 2015 - is this metered?
From 1 July 2015, 0800 calls will be "free". My VM contract gives me 100 minutes per month. If I call an 0800 number and the call lasts, say, six minutes, will that cost me six of my 100 minutes allowance?

Thanks, I didn't know that. By the way, I wasn't worried that they were going to charge me. I just wanted to check that they weren't going to munch into my minutes allowance.
In a fair and altruistic world, it would never have occurred to me to ask. I would have assumed that "free" meant "no deduction from minutes allowance". But this isn't a fair and altruistic world, so I thought it wiser to check.
