Otelo appears to be changing from 0845 to 0330 numbers. Ofqual is similarly advertising 0300 numbers.

Just to confirm Dave's comment re Oxfam - we have now got the 0300 numbers live, and the main three are in the unverified number section. Further numbers will be published on our website soon.

Thanks for that. I have verified them.

There is also an entry for Oxfam Cymru of which there is a 029 alternative. If it is to change to 03, I will be happy to amend that entry.

No need to worry about the piecemeal approach - it is much appreciated that you are providing them to us first anyway Smiley. Now, just make sure to get them publicised every else too  Cool.

I am glad that some people have indeed started using the 03xx numbers. Having a bored afternoon earlier in the week, I went for a browse round the Ofcom site and noted that it was [b]over a year[/b] since the great press splurge about "stopping the 0870 rip off and 03xx numbers were happening", or something like that. And then got mighty annoyed on having to ring a couple of Government departments on 0845 and 0870 revenue sharing numbers.

So I used www.writetothem.com to ask my MP if the Minister can tell him how many government departments are actually using 030x numbers. Still awaiting a reply, I'll relay it here if I get one! It will be interesting to see what excuses they can come up with this time! Anyone want to open a book on "customer convenience"?

Brighter Connections are an "IT agent" company based in Huddersfield. Up until recently (I'm not sure how recently), they had been using 0870 numbers. I only recently discovered (I saw a pen of theirs at work) that they have now switched to 0370 numbers (which have the same last 7 digits as their old 0870 numbers obviously). Thumbs up to Brighter Connections!

The "Hall of fame" has now been updated and lists organisations using 03xx numbers. If anyone knows of others not listed, please let us know.

Could this post be stickied alongside the Hall of shame? Otherwise all people see is the Hall of shame and not the one congratulating the companies that have changed to 03 numbers.
