What are 0871 numbers?

0871 numbers are premium service numbers which are used by some companies as sales helplines, they are one of the most expensive types of numbers to call for Vodafone customers as well as subscribers to other providers. Thankfully their use is rarer than before 2015 as Ofcom legislated that these cannot be used as post-sales helplines, however if you do come across an 0871 number it is wise to check first for a cheaper 0800, 0808 or 03 hotline.
