Get your mobile phone ex--directory

This is not a scam. It needs to be done quick, before this new
service comes on line and loads of dodgy companies start sending out
texts.

Do something to become ex-directory or do nothing to get listed

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.

Just done this myself. Double checked it wasn't a scam 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.
