    Valid Mobile Number ?

    Hi guys,

    For the last week, I have been text about 15 times from this number :

    +447517302306

    It's either a load of random letters or blank texts.

    I've text back to ask who it is, but get another load of random letters back.

    Is this a valid UK mobile number (075 prefix ?) - if so, which network ?

    Don't want to ring it incase it's one of these premium rate number things !!


    Cheers

    Chris

    Hiya, do be careful of texting or ringing back of any strange numbers, it can be a high rate number. I hope you manage to get this solved.

    thats an o2 number, i know because i can text it and i have no credit but free texts to o2

    I've just rang it from work phone and it rang for about 30 seconds and went through to 02 messaging service. Hope this helps.
