Hi.

I assume the phone number is a typical number for your area.

Call charges if you're not on a plan are 13p a minute, plus 22p setup fee according to their website. But that should also apply to 0345 numbers. I believe it's per part minute, so a 1 second call would cost the same as a 59 second call. Not sure if vat is included or not, but the figures compare with your info.

No idea when it was brought in, but it's not that long ago I think - maybe 4 years or so.

An anytime call package is best to have for even a few calls a day. Might be worth looking at. I think it's £9.50 a month, but it depends on the overall package.
