London telephone numbers starting with 020 are not free to call on UK landline and mobile networks unless you have inclusive minutes remaining on your call bundle.
Summary of 020 numbers
UK telephone numbers starting with 020 area codes are generally registered to new numbers in the capital city of London by default, however there can be exceptions. Calls to these numbers are only free if you have inclusive minutes remaining on your mobile tariff or you have a free landline calls bundle. Otherwise you have to pay an access charge to your provider followed by a per-minute rate, note that these charges may be higher for mobile customers therefore you should consider phoning 020 numbers from a landline handset if you have run out of minutes.
