07970 Numbers

Mobile phone numbers

07970 numbers are for mobile phones in the United Kingdom. They were first allocated for use in May 1997.

All UK 07 numbers are for mobiles, pagers and personal numbering.

Which network is 07970?

07970 numbers are allocated to EE. They were previously used for the Orange network.

It is no longer possible to tell the operator of a UK mobile phone from its number alone, as customers are free to take their number with them when they change networks. The 07970 prefix is not a reliable indicator of which network a phone is currently connected to, only which network issued it originally.
