It seems Ofcom are now considering US-style charges for mobiles, so that subscribers will pay for incoming calls! This will further increase the current conman's Eutopia in the UK. We already have the scam of NGNs other then 09 being used as Premium numbers, 0800, 0500 etc. supposed Freephone numbers which are not free and are charged for twice over, unsolicited Premium text messages, 09 numbers with queuing allowed (for short periods!), Trojan diallers and other scam potential allowed and condoned by the useless Ofcom. Now we have the prospect of unsolicited mobile calls costing us money!  

It seems the only answer will be to keep your mobile switched off unless you decide to make a call? Where will Rip-off Britain end? See
