I though premium 07 numbers, had to begin with 070 and 076? Getting scary if the tits at ICSTIS or Phonepay or whatever their called nowadays, have made actual mobile numbers into premium rate numbers!!

It's bad enough having any 07 number being premium rate, given the public perception of them being mobile numbers, without making no definition at all between mobile 07 numbers and premium 07 numbers!

They should have left premium rate numbers to 09, there are plenty to go around!! Tis plain deception to offer 07 premium rate numbers, there is no other reason to do it than to deceive the public.

confused

077 can't be a premium number. 07799 is "allocated" to vodaphone

You can never be sure which network mobile numbers are on now with porting etc etc.

I called the number and a bloke answers. So that's a bit weird.

Just delete them. Had some voice messages on landline. Press a number to carry on and another number to stop messages. Yeh and I just got off the last boat mate!
