The Directory of Mobile Phone numbers goes live next week in the uk
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 you can go here. (you need your mobile phone with you to do this, they text you a code)

You can remove your number from this list, and tell all your friends – especially those with children who have mobile phones.

Hope this helps some of you out.

UPDATE 2

The site is still down
