The 0800 Wizard. Now you can call freephone numbers and get PAID for it!
As of July the 1st, Ofcom updated the rules to allow 0800 and 0808 numbers free to call from mobiles.
Therefore we have updated the 0800 Wizard allowing these free calls but with a twist.
By combining the freedom of the 0800 Wizard's '03 conversion' and the power of in-app call credit, the 0800 Wizard can now be a nice little earner.
The 0800 Wizard swaps the freephone number you want to dial with an 03 number. The charge for calling 03's is already in your bundled minutes so you're not losing out there. If you exceed your bundled contract minutes (or you are a PAYG customer) then the calls are simply charged at normal networks rates.
You can't lose.
The intercept feature remains (you can toggle on and off from the settings menu) which means you can still dial freephone numbers DIRECTLY, using your phone's dialler.
You can use the 0800 Wizard to make calls to 0800, 0808 and 0500 numbers for free or you can register for a Wizard Account and start earning money.
A "Wizard account" is an in app credit "pot" that you top up via in app payments or save money with calls made via the 0800 Wizard.
The money earned making calls to freephone numbers will accumulate in your Wizard account allowing you to withdraw it to your PayPal account, or similar, when you reach £5.

Points to note:
1. Calls to 0800, 0808 and 0500 numbers will be made using an 03 number to connect your call. Calls to 03 numbers cost no more than a national rate call to an 01 or 02 number count towards any inclusive minutes in the same way as 01 and 02 calls.
2. Call credit is earned by making calls to 0800, 0808 and 0500 numbers at the rate of 0.4p per minute. This credit will be added to your Wizard account and can be withdrawn when £5 has been reached.
3. Payments will be made within 30 days of request and will be made to a registered PayPal address primarily. If you do not have a PayPal account you will be asked to supply a contact telephone number for one of our team to contact you. Please have payment details handy for when we call.
