Video: 118800 Mobile Phone Directory launches next week
As of next week a new mobile directory service is to launch which allows people to locate the mobile phone numbers of people they do not even know and is run by 118800.
The 118800 service will cost the user Â£1 and uses a database of mobile phone numbers which they claim are freely available to buy and are in the public domain and claims to hold 15 million numbers.
Privacy campaigners have complained to the Information Commissioner’s Office, however the ICO have ruled that the system does comply with current laws and isn’t that much different to other companies who use such contact lists for cold calling. We have a video which you can view below that lets you know all about the service.
