    In what context? It could mean a non-geographic number you can divert to any line, wherever you happen to be, or perhaps multiple numbers assigned to your home line so that the phone gives a different ring according to who the call is for within the household.

    It's just a default decode of the 070 prefix. Try plugging "070 numbers uk" into Google (and then put 070* on your block list!).

    The number scheme for UK Personal Numbers (070) is very similar to the numbering used for mobile or 'special' services in a number of Middle and Far East countries. 0706731215 probably originates in India and is associated with a well-known series of scams (see comments at http:// who-called. co.uk/ Number/ 0706731215)(remove spaces). Personal Numbers are slowly dying out in the UK after the OfCom review for call charges to non-geographical numbers and a decrease in shared revenue for 070 operators. You now every reason to be very suspicious of calls with an 070 prefix.
