Validate UK Mobile Phone Numbers
Posted on 2003-12-08
Does anybody know of an algorithm with which to validate UK mobile phone numbers? I think numbers from different operators have different prefixes, but is there a definitive way to say number x is valid, but number y isn't (e.g. as you can with a credit card)?
And on a related note, is it possible to 'sniff' whether a mobile phone would accept MMS messages by interacting with it in some way (excluding sending an sms saying 'D U WANT PICTURES?')
A cheeky double-header, but interested to hear what yout think.
