CallSaver - Save Money on 08xx Calls
Pay back the cost of CallSaver with your first call!
Picked by TV's Gadget Guru Jon Bentley in his money-saving "Thrifty Gadgetry" article.
Whenever you call a number beginning 08 on your phone, you are charged up to 35p per minute! CallSaver is the ultimate App to help you avoid these charges by providing you with numbers beginning 01, 02 & 03 which are included in your minutes.

- Free Updates for Life. No Subscription

- Database Optimised from User Experience
- User Submission and Request Facility
- Frequent Phonebook Updates

We all get frustrated when we receive our iPhone bill and annoying extra charges have crept in for 0845, 0844, 0870 & 0871 numbers. These are the scourge of modern communications and are charged at between 25p and 34.3p per minute. Even our old friend, the 0800 number (and the new kid 0500), is taking us for a ride, annoyingly charging us for calls that are free on a landline! Those extra pounds soon mount up to be a small fortune over the life of a contract and disuade us from calling these companies on the move.
CallSaver aims to optimise the way you use your Call Plan by giving you immediate access to the unpromoted alternative numbers for companies offering 08 contact numbers. CallSaver aims to save you money and allow you to call these companies without worrying about call durations.
The CallSaver database has been designed and built from scratch and will continue growing every month. New numbers will be submitted by a growing base of CallSaver users and outdated numbers reported when companies change call centre contracts. Your iPhone and iPod Touch (WiFi required) will receive regular updates from the Internet to keep your phone number database up to date. The aim is simple - to provide in the palm of your hand the ultimate database of UK alternative numbers by crowd sourcing and continued research.
The User Interface has been designed with no annoying ads so access to the numbers through category and company listings is immediate. Numbers you use regularly use can be stored in the Favourites View along the way. The next time the App is launched after a phone call is placed, an optional feature allows you to provide feedback (Internet connection required) on the success of your call for review. This is self-optimisation at work.
If a certain number is missing from the database, it can be requested. The number will be sourced (if one exists), verified and issued in subsequent updates.
CallSaver is also ideal for the iPod Touch. Most homephone Call Plans charge premium rates for phoning 0845, 0844, 0871 & 0870 numbers. Simply look up the phone number on the iPod Touch and use that to make the call. No internet connection is required to retrieve these numbers, so they are always accessible.
