UK Mobile Phone Numbers – Unsubscribe your phone

fwd: Mansukhlal Lalji

Maybe 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 beginning of next week to make sure that you are ex-directory. We have all unsubscribed and 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 BBC - see link below.


BBC website is recommending to unsubscribe.


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 too.


To remove your number go here. (you need your mobile phone with you to do this, they text you a code)


You can remove your number from this list, and tell all your friends - especially those with children who have mobile phones. I personally believe my mobile number is private and I should be able to chose who I give it to - none of us agreed to this when we signed our mobile phone contracts.


Provision of Stroke and Trauma Services at Northwick Park Hospital
Fwd by Narotambhai Pattni, London

Although it is specific for those who are local to Northwick Park Hospital, we are sending it to a wider group as there must be many Pattni members who have relatives living in Brent & Harrow. Please pass on to all relevant to those who do not have access to the internet.

“The NHS is currently reviewing the provision of stroke and trauma services within London. Northwick Park Hospital is one of the proposed sites for the acute stroke service. It would be in the interest of our Pattni members living in Brent & Harrow – or with relatives living in Brent & Harrow – if this service was available locally, both for the patient as well as the relatives who would be looking after the stroke sufferer.

Healthcare for London is keen to receive feedback and opinions from members of the general public.

Subject: say no to 0870
Many people don't realise that there are many phone providers offering cheaper calls to standard telephone numbers (those beginning with 01 or 02), which don't apply to 0844, 0845, 0870 or 0871 telephone numbers. - Please see the links page and click on Cheapest Call Provider for price details. This shows that by using multiple providers, you can reduce your call cost on standard telephone numbers to as little as 3p fixed cost (regardless of duration), whereas the cheapest provider to 0870 numbers during the day is around 4p/min (3p connection fee) to call.

Now say no to 0845, 0870 or 0871 numbers - visit and find alternative local or free phone number to 0845, 0870 or 0871
