No App?

We'll stay in the queue for you, and once we've found you an agent, your phone will ring twice. As soon as it's stopped ringing, just hit Last Number Redial on your phone, or dial us on 0333 5432111, and we'll connect you to the agent straight away.

We save you time and money

Because all calls through WeQ4U are to an 03 number, they are included in your standard national minutes (whether you get stuck in a queue or not), so you don't pay high 08 rates, even when using the service to dial 08 numbers. Furthermore, with WeQ4U you only pay for the time you spend on the phone - not for the time waiting in the queue, so you can save £££s by using the service frequently.

FAQ

  • Q. How does it reduce my mobile phone bill?

    Mobile operators typically charge a single per-minute rate for all calls to 0870, 0871, 0872, 0873, 0843, 0844 and 0845 numbers. Though this rate does vary between different providers, it's usually about 30p per minute. 0800 and 0500 calls are free from landlines, but are normally not free when dialled direct from a mobile phone, and are not included in your monthly minutes.

    You avoid these charges by using the WeQ4U app, because all WeQ4U calls are to an 03 number, which means they are part of your monthly minutes allowance (and therefore FREE), just like 01 or 02 numbers. That's by law.

    So, you will save the most money (as well as time!) if you use WeQ4U every time you need to call a call centre using your mobile phone. We have handy Apps available for iPhone and Android, but if you don't have these, then use the 0333 number.

    Your Best Bet: Download the WeQ4U App now, and use it for every call centre call.

  • Q. What about land lines?

    For BT Landlines, 0800, 0500, 01, 02 and 03 numbers are normally included in your call plan. 0845 is 2p per minute. 0870 is 7.6p. 0871,0872,0873 are 5p - 10p per minute, but most companies that have these numbers charge the full 10p. 0843 and 0844 are 1p - 5p per minute, but most companies that have these numbers charge the full 5p.

    Sky rates are similar, but usually have an extra 12p connection charge for the 08 numbers.

    Your Best Bet: Put 0333 5432111 on speed-dial now, and use it every time you call an 087X or 084X number to save the most money and time

  • Q. Are the calls really free?

    'Free' assumes you receive inclusive minutes to UK landlines as part of your mobile phone contract, or landline package. WeQ4U access numbers start with 03 and are included in these free minutes by law, but may be charged at your provider's normal UK landline rate if you go over your included minutes, just like any other 01, 02 or 03 call.

    So that's a yes then.

  • Q. What about Pay As You Go?

    If you pay for all your calls by the minute, then the WeQ4U calls will be charged at the same rate as your regular landline calls (i.e. 01/02/03 rate), even when you're trying to reach 08 numbers. Using the service means you avoid the higher charges mobile companies apply when dialling 08 numbers, and of course you won't incur any call charges while we wait in the queue for you, so you'll still save money, even on PAYG.

  • Q. Does it work with every 08 number?

    The WeQ4U App and Service works with EVERY 0800, 0808, 0500 and 0870 number. For other 08 numbers, we will use an alternate number to route your call. Alternate numbers are sourced from publicly available sources. We cannot accept responsibility for the accuracy or quality of any alternative numbers used by the app/service, as we can't manually check every one. Use of WeQ4U is therefore entirely at your own risk.

    You can check to see if the service works with a specific number on the search page, or just use the App.

    Now the good news: Overall we are able to successfully route 70% of calls to numbers for which an alternate is needed, so your odds of success are pretty good, particularly if you are calling a large company.

    Furthermore, unlike other alternate number sources, we do have some automatic checks in place to help clean our alternate number database, so your chances of finding a duff number with WeQ4U are pretty small.

    However, if you do come across a duff number, then please let us know straight away so we can fix it for next time for you.

  • Q. Does it record my calls?

    No, we don't record any callers. We just deliver them straight to the call centre.

  • Q. Will it share my personal details?

    No. We take privacy very seriously, and are not interested in your personal information (see our Privacy Policy below).

  • Q. I run a call centre and have a question...

    We'd love to hear from you. Please see the WeQ4U 4 Business site for ways we can help you answer ALL of your callers without waiting - for FREE! - and also our database addition procedure.

  • Q. How can you afford to run this service for free?

    In addition to the WeQ4U App, we have a solution for Call Centres called WeQ4U 4 Business, that helps all callers get through without waiting, whether they have the App or not.

    When you use WeQ4U to skip a call centre queue, we find out which call centres have long queues, so we can help them with our business solution.

    So, pressing 9* when you hit the queue helps keep the service free.

  • No problem.

    We take your privacy very seriously! Here are some notes about how we do, and do not use your data.

    • We are registered as a Data Processor with the Office of the Data Commissioner, and fully comply with the Data Protection Act.
    • We will not pass on any Personally Identifying Information to any other company or organisation.
    • The only time we pass your CallerID on to any other party is when you are making a call through the service, in which case it is sent to the Call Centre as CallerID, just like a normal call.
    • We do make use of data about your call - specifically about particularly long waits - in order to approach call centres that may need our business solution, WeQ4U 4 Business. We may pass this information on to other businesses, such as our partners and resellers - but never information that would allow them to identify your specific call.
    • We may from time to time make use of aggregate call data in order to produce statistics on call centre performance, or league tables of poorly performing call centres, for example. We will never publish information about your specific calls.
    • The WeQ4U App accesses the Contacts on your phone to create a WeQ4U Contact, which may have several numbers associated with it, which are used by our service. The reason for this is so that you can tell when a call is to/from the WeQ4U service.
    • We do not access your contacts, or any other information on your phone, for any purpose other than the delivery of our service to you. We're on the level!
    • We do not record any portion of your call.

    That's all we can think of! If you have any further questions about privacy, or how we make use of data generated by the use of our service, please ask us by writing to Customer Services.

    NEWS: WeQ4U pays the Dragons a call!

    October 8th 2012

    Entrepreneur Matt King, who has invented a revolutionary new system to eliminate annoying call centre queues, is pitching his invention on the BBC TV show Dragon's Den on October 21.


    Matt is the brains behind WEQ4U, a smart free app which saves people from being held in annoying queues at call centres. Since its launch earlier this year, the app has been downloaded more than 10,000 times, saving every single user, on average, a hefty £76 pounds per year.


    Matt's smart time and money saving device works with any phone and is available via iTunes and Android for mobile phone users, connecting them to hundreds of thousands of 08 numbers for free, saving them 30p per minute on their 08 calls.


    Under BBC TV publicity guidelines, Matt is unable to talk about his experience in the Dragon's Den until after the show is broadcast at 9pm on BBC-2 on October 21.


    "I can't give any details about my appearance, but I can say that if my memory of the filming is anything to go by, then it promises to be unmissable, says Matt. "So, to find out how the Dragons answered my call, you'll just have to tune in and see."


    Being held in a phone queue is one of the nation's biggest gripes, which is why Matt has developed a clever queuing robot that does all the waiting for you.


    The phone remains the most popular channel of communication for inbound and outbound contact (Infinity CCS 2012 survey), with 70 per cent of people preferring to make contact using their phone as opposed to email, text or social media.


    The average UK consumer however spends 45 hours a year waiting on the phone (source: Co-op). And 60% of customers say they find it difficult to get through to call centres (source: Future Foundation).






    NEWS: 10,000th download for smart app which eliminates annoying call centre queues

    July 23rd 2012

    A free app which saves people from being held in annoying queues at call centres, has been downloaded 10,000 times, saving every single user, on average, a hefty £76 pounds per year.


    Entrepreneur and innovator Matt King, who launched the new WeQ4U app in March, says mobile users are flocking to download the time saving app because of its 30p per minute savings.a


    "The phone is still the most popular channel of communication for people wanting to make contact with a customer advisor in the UK, but lengthy call centre wait times remain a huge problem and customers are paying heavily for the privilege to queue," says Matt.


    Until call centre operators get their acts together, using the WeQ4U app is really people's only option if they want to save themselves time and a considerable amount of money too.


    Being held in a phone queue is one of the nation's biggest gripes, which is why Matt has developed a clever queuing robot that does all the waiting for you.


    His smart time and money saving device works with any phone and is available via ITunes and Android for mobile phone users, connecting them to hundreds of thousands of 08 numbers for free.

    How it Works

    WeQ4U is incredibly simple to use and works with any UK number starting 01, 02, 0800, 0870 or 0500, as well as many thousands of other 087, 084 and 03 numbers in WeQ4U's extensive database of UK companies, including Sky, British Gas, HMRC, Barclays, BT and The Post Office.


    WeQ4U app users get 08 calls included in their regular minutes, saving mobile users approximately 30p per minute. And if users get stuck in a queue, they just press 9* and their place is held for them free of chargeuntil an agent answers, without using up any minutes at all. The average saving is £2.53 for every call made from a mobile phone.

    Calls are to standard geographic 01 numbers, and are included in callers' inclusive minutes, so there are no expensive 08 charges with the service. Naturally, callers pay nothing for the time WeQ4U waits in the queue.


    To use it via a landline, dial 0333 5432 111 and enter the number of the call centre you need to reach. WeQ4U dials it and connect callers to the call centre. Once in a queue for an agent, just press 9* to disconnect from the call. The system remains in the queue until an agent answers, when the user's phone rings twice. As soon as it's stopped ringing, hit Last Number Redial or dial 0333 5432 111 to be put through to the agent immediately.





    NEWS: Time saving device cuts out the pain of phone queues

    March 1st, 2012

    A brilliant new invention from a British entrepreneur is set to solve one of the nation.s biggest gripes - being held in a phone queue.


    Matt King's new WeQ4U service is set to save frustrated callers millions of minutes a year being held in customer service queues as they try to get through to the UK call centres run by hundreds of British service industries.

    "One of people's pet hates is being held in a queue when they are trying to get through to a real person at a call centre," says Matt. In fact there's nothing worse than being told that your call is important and will be answered shortly when it clearly isn't.


    "Research shows that people can be left on hold for anything up to an hour as they try to get through to a customer advisor. We are on a mission to put an end to that misery by connecting people to pretty much any UK call centre without them getting stuck in the inevitable queue."
