Mobile accessibility

International Accessibility: Decent
An international operator may charge more for a call made to a 0845 number than would be charged to a local geographic 01, 02, or 03 Number. Although many international operators will support this range, some may not support the 0845 range, and not be as reliable to recieve calls into the United Kingdom from aboard from your 0845 number.
