Can you tell the network from the prefix?

If a number begins with, say, 0792, can you tell what network that is?

I don't think so... because number porting happens a lot of the time. People may be on Vodafone and have ported their number over from o2, etc :) I don't think there's a surefire way to tell.

Yes, as Emma said. Usually you could tell by the prefix, but because of porting: nah.
HOWEVER: if a number you call IS NOT on the network the prefix would suggest, YOU WILL hear a short beep before the call connects!
