What does anybody know about texts from number 81999 ? I have received a couple of texts today from Lottobytext (or Lotto by Text) advertising free lottery lines! Please help! I wanna try it out but need to know more about the t& c's.
Steer clear. You won't win anything, and the next phone bill you get for having these messages could be a bit of a surprise, though there are some positive responses on 'Who Calls Me' I don't trust these type of services and tend to avoid them. Only the first five goes are free, then it's £1.50 every time they send you a message, and they will. If you are on payg and have no credit you don't ge out of it as they all queue until you top up, them Bam!
Hi guys! Thanks for all your responses! Didnt expect anyone to get back to me so soon! I have just had a look on the website and I found this: The free trial offers you the opportunity to experience the service completely FREE without any obligations to continue. You will be sent the National Lottery or Euromillions draw results to your mobile together with 5 free syndicate lines for the next available draw. You do not need to continue the service even if you win the National Lottery or Euromillions during your free trial.
To stop an offer by text, simply send the word " STOP " to 85200. To terminate all services provided by Lotto by Text simply text the word " STOP ALL " to 85200. That sounds ok to me. I think that if you make sure that you know the t&c's then it's fine. Im gonna try it out right now and let you know how I get on. x
Well she's had advice from folks with about 25000 posts between them and decided to risk it. Maybe o2 should have some sort of reputation system like Apple discussions. There is no official input there either and just like this it is moderated by 3rd party. But at least you can see who may give you some decent advice, then again that is not what some folks are after and will not take the advice anyway.
Hi everyone! Just a quick note to brendan002, why do you presume that I'm a she??? And this site is about advise and I don't really think I'm taking a 'risk'. They told me in the text messages how to stop the service at any time! I texted "Yes" today and they sent me clear information to my mobile. From what I understand I will receive 5 free lines in to the next lottery draw (which is tonight, right?) I can stop the service whenever i want but if i choose to continue then I will get 5 lines in to every lottery draw for £1.50 per draw (or £4.50 per week) this is what it says in the text! Im gonna try it out for a week because I do play the lottery and see how it goes! I'll give you all an update asap! BTW this blog is great! Thanks for all your responses again =)
