Just received this by email - haven't seen it elsewhere
You may or may not be aware that from early next week all UK mobiles will be on a directory which means that anyone will be able to access your number for the payment of a small fee.

This means that you and all your friends and family who have UK mobiles could be swamped by unsolicited messages and calls. If you do not wish to be on this list you must unsubscribe.

It is easy to unsubscribe but it must be done before the beginning of next week to make sure that you are ex directory. Removal is recommended by the BBC - see link below.

To remove your number go to the link below:

Select ex directory and follow simple instructions .

You need your mobile phone with you as they will immediately text you a code which you must then re-input to become ex-directory - it only took about 60 seconds for the text to come back with the code number.
