inclusive calls to 08 numbers?

As a VM customer who was considering a Virgin Mobile rolling 30-day SIM-only contract, I received a glossy brochure from Virgin in the post a few weeks ago.

One of the highly attractive tariffs included one for £10/month which states "unlimited calls to 08 numbers". It would appear that is an error as VM informed me that it only includes 0800, 0870, and 0808 numbers so, that being the case, why don't they provide a caveat to that effect in their literature. This is a blatant example of misleading advertising!!!!!

If you are not happy you can print off some examples and send them to the Advertising Standards Agency.

I've not seen the adverts so can't comment but such examples are not uncommon in the Telecoms industry.

yes, I have reported it when it first came to my attention in promotional literature received a year ago but it has not made any difference!!!
