Mobile UK directory - remove

You might want to send this on to your friends in the UKMaybe you have heard about this but early next week all UK mobiles will be on a directory which will mean that anyone will be able to access the numbers. It is easy to unsubscribe but it must be done before the=0beginning of next week to make sure that you are ex directory. You could be swamped by unsolicited messages and calls. Removal is recommended by the BBC - see link below.

Just done this myself. Double checked it wasn't a scam and it is actually on the bbc website recommending doing this.The Directory of Mobile Phone numbers goes live next week. Apparently, all numbers including those belonging to children will be open to cold calling and the general abuse that less scrupulous telesales people subject us too.To remove your number go here. (you need your mobile phone with you to do this, they text youa code)

When on the site, click "Home" then "Ex-directory" this will remove you from the directory.You can remove your number from this list, and tell all your friends - especially those with children who have mobile phones. A mobile number is private and you should be able to choose who you give it to - none of us agreed to this when we signed our mobile phone contracts.
