Can you discern the mobile network from the mobile number?

I've noticed some friends on the same network have the same first few digits of mobile number... coincidence?

Yeh, networks do get numbers where the first 5 digits are the same.
However with numbers being ported every day it's a bit messed up now.

But if i was going into a store today to take a contract from Orange lets say. the first five digits i get would not be the same that i'd get with three or o2 etc...

(i think its the first 5, maybe 4?)
