Next week your UK mobile phone number will be listed in a public directory for all to see.
If you don’t want to be inundated with unsolicited txt’s and phone calls then it might be best to remove it now.
Removal is recommended by the BBC – http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/working_lunch/8091621.stm
The Directory of Mobile Phone numbers goes live next week. All numbers including those belonging to children will be open to cold calling and the general abuse that less scrupulous telesales people subject us to.
To remove your number go here. (you need your mobile phone with you to do this, they text you a code) www.118800.co.uk select ex-directory.
