O2 GRPS Dial In Number (E51)

I've read a lot of articles about using GPRS as a dial up connection for linux, and I'd like to try it with my phone and laptop.
It all seems pretty straightforward except all the tutorials and articles seem to refer to " *99*# " which seems to be some sort of dial-in number for Orange UK?

Does anyone know the equivalent for O2-UK?

It's standard number, works for most operators out there (probably you can find one or two exceptions, but they are really rare).
