How do you know that a mobile number +447xxxxxxxxx is a text to the Channel Islands and Isle of Man and subject to a charge?

That I can find there is nothing to distinguish a UK mainland mobile number from a Channel Islands and Isle of Man based number, so you incur charges without any knowledge until your monthly bill arrives with extra charges. Surely that is wrong?
