I thought you might be interested to know (i apologise if this as been posted already) but a friend of mine who works for a reputable solicitors was passed this from her head office.

 

We have been alerted to the following today:-

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 NEWS | Programmes | Working Lunch | Mobile phone directory to launch

Just done this myself. Double checked it wasn't a [problem] and it is

actually on the bbc website recommending to do this.

 

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)

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. 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.

 

Orson wells springs to mind..... When will the madness end.....?

It hit the news they were so swamped with people wanting to go ex directory that the site went down. They have said people will still be able to opt out when they get it running again.

I think it would lead to only bad things this service. Some sites say it will be a good service but that is how they all start and then next minute they will open their doors to the marketing companies and DCA's (for a price of course) and they will say - "well you didn't opt out".

People should be able to opt into a directory not having to opt out. I think it's digusting that any agency/company can obtain your number so freely, the government need to get a grip with this, sooner rather than later
