If this is accurate, it’s just ridiculous. Got it in via the anonymous form.
Here’s what I understand has been going on.
The 07624 UK number range is operated by Manx Telecom — the Isle of Man telecoms company.
For some reason, T-Mobile customers and Three customers are being charged international rates to send text messages to that block of numbers. How do I know this? Well, the anonymous commentary — there is a heck of a lot — indicates subscribers to those networks have been complaining and asking for clarification.
Surely it’s a bit naughty for these operators to classify a number range that you, I and anyone else would recognise as thoroughly ‘British’ as an international rate text?
Can anyone shed any light on this? Are the end-users with the proof of this on their bills just a tiny exception? A temporary billing error?
