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 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. Hope this helps.


Removal is recommended by the BBC – see link below.

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)

Done mine. Just doing mum and dads.

It tickles me. They say they will not give your number to companys. It's just for friends who have lost touch - how do they know who is your friend and who is not? What if someone has changed their number in the process of escaping an abusive relationship? :shock:
