+44 121 is supposed to be for geographic numbers.  IIRC I still assume
that a UK geographic number is a fixed line.  I don't think it's time to
change that yet given that 99.999% of them really are fixed.  That
particular range is certainly *billed* like all the fixed lines around
it (possibly with the exception of Orange customers).
