Typical call costs to 07042 numbers

These are different from mobile numbers and calls to them are more expensive. They can be used as a "follow me" service where calls are diverted from another number. Small businesses and sole traders use them to make it easy to manage calls.

Personal numbers are also sold on a one-off basis, for example when someone is buying or selling a used car and doesn’t want to advertise their private mobile or fixed line number on a website or magazine.

070 numbers can cost between 5p and 50p per minute if calling from a landline (and often include a call set-up fee, sometimes of up to 50p). From a mobile phone these numbers can cost up to £1.00 per minute.
