    The Directory of Mobile Phone numbers goes live next week.
    All numbers including those belonging to children will be open to cold calling.

    To remove your number go here.
    http://www.118800.co.uk/removeme/remove-me.html

    i have copied and pasted this from an email so i realise this looks a bit dodgy, but next week this will happen, you can take your self off using this
    thought some of you might like it on here too as well as my friends!...xxx

    Got this from their site:
    Search here to find out if we have the mobile phone
    number of your contact.

    If we do, we text them with your details so they can call
    you back. We never give out the mobile numbers of
    people in our directory to protect privacy.

    You will be charged £1 for the text to be sent, but it's free
    for your contact.


    I don't get it. If someone wanted my number, they use this site, pay a £1, I get a text to give them a call? Why would I want to do that? I give my number out on a need to know basis to those whom I decide. It is a bit weird.
