Benefits of Using an 0844 Number
Earn Revenue of your calls
Earn up to 4p per minute on your incoming calls. If you generate at least 500 minutes of calls each month (around 10 calls per day) you could introduce a brand new revenue stream to your business.
Near real-time reporting
Gain a greater understanding of who’s calling your 0844 number with live online statistics. You can view missed call reports or accurately track campaign response rates. It can also be ideal to monitor call levels to different departments within your company.
Improved business image
Begin advertising your business alongside national companies with a professional 0844 number. A non-geographic number enables you to advertise outside your local area and gives off a big business image.
Your 0844 number setup can be managed online through our online portal. Here you can change the destination number as well as make instant changes to your call services such as voicemails and call queues. Many of our advanced services involve a monthly cost, please speak to our account managers for further details.
If for whatever you or your staff are unable to attend the office you don’t need to miss any important business calls. Using our services you can simply change where your 0844 number is pointed meaning you can take calls on your mobile, at home or literally anywhere in the world.
Our website advertises a wide range of highly memorable 0844 numbers. Using a gold or silver 0844 number means your customers will never forget your number and adds a whole new level of business image.

0844 Numbers: We've Answered Your Questions
- When will my 0844 number be live?
When you place an order through 08Direct you receive a customer confirmation email which contains your details and the 0844 number you ordered. At the same time our account managers receive a notification of your order and will process it as soon as time allows. During office hours this can be within minutes. Your allocated account manager will then contact you to confirm your details, answer any further questions and discuss any additional services.
- How much is it to call 0844 numbers?
From 1st July 2015 the cost to call all 0844 numbers changed. The new charges make the calls much more transparent. The call costs are now split into two parts:
1. Connection charge – This is set by your network provider
2. Service (per min) cost – This is set by the 0844 number operator
All 0844 numbers supplied by 08Direct have a service cost of 7p per minute, which should be clearly advertised alongside the number. Please speak to a member of our team for more details.
- Why do you charge for more memorable 0844 numbers?
Providing a highly memorable 0844 number will ensure your customers never forget your number, and will add whole new level of professionalism to your business. Big businesses across the UK use the very best numbers as they know this makes them appear the most powerful as they stand out from the competition.
So as a result we place a one-off fee on our silver and gold numbers which we advertise on the website. If you require something highly memorable or are looking for a specific series of numbers please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of our team. Many other providers will charge a connection fee or even a monthly payment for memorable 0844 numbers so be sure to discuss your requirements with us before working with another provider.
- Can I still use my landline or mobile if an 0844 number is pointed at it?
Our 0844 services are completely separate to your current landline or mobile setup, all calls are simply mapped onto your telephone number or numbers. Your current landline or mobile calls are not affected; they will continue to operate as normal.
- Can I dial out on my 0844 number?
All services on 08Direct are known as ‘inbound’ and all our numbers are revered to as ‘cloud based’. Your inbound calls to your 0844 number are pointed at your existing landline and / or mobile number. All your outbound calls will continue as they always have with callers seeing your landline or mobile before answering.
