How do I identify a mobile phone service provider

  anchor 16:51 14 Feb 2006

My wife and I both have mobile phone contracts with Vodafone. We have 60 minutes of free calls a month to UK land lines, and to any Vodafone number.

Is there any web site that would indicate which service provider is for a particular number, or series of numbers.

All the numbers seem very similar, but I feel there must be a way of telling if its Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile, etc:.

You add my text in the address bar, as Carbonara says.

put a / immediately after the and type the text. Then press the enter key.

You're not dim - I'm often in a rush, and I just assume people will know what I mean. I'm sorry for the confusion.
