mobile phone directory

You may already 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 your numbers. It’s easy to unsubscribe but it must be done before the beginning of next week to make sure that you are ex-directory. You may want to suggest it to all your friends and family who have UK mobiles or they could be swamped by unsolicited messages and calls. Removal is recommended by the dear old Auntie BBC.


To remove your number click on the link below, you need your mobile
phone with you to do this as they text you a code

1,

2, Click on ‘Ex Directory’ at top right hand side of page, from
there it’s straight forward.

An even easier solution is to not have a mobile phone in the first place. They are the cigarettes of the 21st century, mark my words.

Just tried it and the site is offline! Maybe they have been swamped with requests.

'Cigarettes of the 21st Century' - that's such a perfect phrase. In the same vein, I also like 'Car crash television'.

Anyway, that's slightly off-topic. I've tried again to remove myself from the directory and the site is still inconveniently unavailable. Oh dear, that is so unfortunate isn't it, lovely listeners?

Do you still have to 'unsubscribe' if you have a pay as you go phone?
