BBC still has difficulty with cost of 0800/03 nos

Listening to Radio 2 earlier, Steve Wright explaining that the cost of calling the 0370 number is, I paraphrase, geographic call charges, but from mobiles may cost more.

I have heard other presenters quoting the "08000" number as "free from most landlines" and that mobiles may cost more (or something to that effect).

It's hardly helpful to the 0800 and 03 brands that they persist with the confusing message about call charges, making them appear more complex than they actually are, doing disservice in the process.

Indeed, it is annoying and happens frequently on the radio, not so much on TV now. Radio 2 changed from an 0500 to an 0800 number but still sometimes give out the old 0500 pricing information.

Not just on the air, it would appear their website has the same "interesting" info.  From Zoe Ball Breakfast Show "Standard geographic charges apply and calls may be included in your telecom provider's call package. Calls from mobiles may be higher"

The mind boggles.

And "Feedback" is still saying "Calls from some mobiles might cost more" about its 0333 number.
