Mobile networks

First, an apology for being off topic.

I have been asked if it is possible to determine a person's mobile network by virtue of their mobile number. Seems that some networks offer free calls to their own networks at certain times and my friend would like to be able to find out what numbers are on the same network so that calls to those numbers can be made when they are free.

(I don't have any idea at all about mobiles as I don't own one but people still give me such questions. Similarly, I don't know anything about TVs, DVDs, Sky remotes, freeview, scart leads, video recorders and so forth but still get asked!)

Thanks for that, Dio.

The quick answer is no.
As we call all change our network & take our number with us these days.

Thanks for that Carpigiani. That's that answered now.

Should be 'As we can all change ou network & take our number with us'
Pleased you wre able to make sense of my reply, even with the typo.

I have a gift of being able to read what I think people meant to write! Comes from my studies of obscure languages I expect... :-)

Thanks, Graham ®, that is very helpful.

Graham ® very good list. But what happens when you change your network & take your existing mobile number with you?
