Mobile phone numbers
07873 numbers are for mobile phones in the United Kingdom.
All UK 07 numbers are for mobiles, pagers and personal numbering.
Which network uses 07873 numbers?
07873 numbers are officially shared by two different operators:
- 07873 000000 to 099999 for Telesign Mobile
- 07873 100000 to 999999 for O2
All 07873 numbers will have originally been issued to customers by O2 or Switchconnect. However, customers are free to take their number with them when they change networks which means that an 07873 number is not a reliable indicator of which network a phone is currently connected to.
These are normal mobile numbers and most will usually be charged at standard rates.
Some phone companies exclude calls to 07873 numbers from inclusive call allowances – check your tariff details before calling.
