    Twice today my mobile has had a call from 02920240069. Does anyone recognise the area code or anything? I haven't picked up the phone on the basis that it isn't a local number or an area code I recognise and I haven't given my mobile number to anyone except friends. I have only had this number since the end of November so I highly doubt many people would have got it unless I told them. Is this a premium rate number which will automatically reverse charges to my phone, and if so, how can I block it?

    Yea, sure :tongue:

    Links look promising- I think I'll just reject all the calls! Seems to be a call centre in Cardiff making pointless calls!

    Could be Jessop Smyhte. But only if he's calling from work....
    My provider is based in Cardiff, they probably want you to upgrade your phone. Ignore.

    I had a phonecall from one of the numbers in Dyl's link earlier today, but I ignored it. If they are trying to get me to upgrade my phone I wish I'd answered it now, because last time I refused to take an upgrade (about 3 weeks ago) they sent me a cheque for 40 quid! :clap:

    I wonder how many times in one year I can get money out of them..... :biggrin:

    After a little bit of googling, a visit to and a cross check at, best guess is

    Communications Direct Ltd

    Dominions House, Dominions Arcade, Cardiff, South Glamorgan CF10 2AR
    Tel: 0870 0116871

    I say best guess as it appears that they have a whole rake of Cardiff phone numbers. The latest one hasn't hit the listings yet.

    Currently under investigation by Vodaphone and probably other providers too

    You can register a mobile number with Telephone Preference Service so unless you've got a contract with them, they shouldn't be cold calling you...

    Perhaps they've heard that your tuba playing is a crime against humanity ;)

    I resent that comment. My tuba playing is a must see comedy event... I provide amusement for the masses!

    Just got a phonecall from it so googled the number. It's people trying to sell you a contract, probably pretending they're from Orange. Answer, leave the phone on the side, wait for them to give up.
