Does anyone else think that in the current economic climate, wiping out your balance on a PAYG dongle is really unfair. I have my O2 dongle for when my home O2 broadband isn;t working but if I have to keep topping up with £10 every 30 days that seems really unfair. I have a TMN dongle that I bought in Portugal and that lets me keep my top up for six months. I really don't understand why all UK mobile operators are so mean. I bet their business would increase if they didn't punish mobile broadband users in this way. Interested to hear other people's thoughts.

I've always got one eye out for a cheaper PAYG mobile deal, and when I find one it'll be sayōnara o2! You get very little for your £15 top-up -and now no more cloud.
Talking of meanness...
I used to be with Vodafone, and I went to Ireland for a time (where my signal changed from Vodafone UK to Vodafone Ireland) I asked them if I would have to pay extra to use the service, and they said yes, I'd have to pay roaming charges. I then pointed out that the signal I was getting was coming from them (Vodafone) whom I already have a contract with. They said that Vodafone Ireland are a separate company to Vodafone UK and the charges are for use of their technical infrastructure to carry the signal ect... I then asked if Vodafone UK and Vodafone Ireland had separate shareholders. No reply...

It doesn't work like that, if they're separate companies everything is separate, intermingling would cause chaos with their accounting.
I used to work for Shell and they had hundreds of companies all separately run.

I completely understand, I have an issue with this so called unlimted phone tariff. I really regret moving to o2, they are extremely greedy and unfair. ####. I am off as soon as my contracts are up for renewal!
