    Valid Mobile Number Help? 13th Sep 17 at 2:39 PM
    Hi All,

    I'm relatively new to comping but have noticed that on some competition sites when I go to fill in my mobile number it is not accepted as a valid phone number and thus I can no longer participate.

    Does anyone know why this might be happening? Any help would be appreciated!

    Normally, mobile phone numbers must be 11 digits with no spaces and start "07" (ie. don't use +44 or anything).

    Tell us an example of a comp that is not accepting this.
