Filled in loads of forms (had to hack the phone number cos BE do not accept short
<11 digit phone numbers). After 20 minutes of trying various extra digit combos' finally
got the to DD screen - odd that they will check valid short numbers but will nto accept
valid short numbers in thier sign up form.
