Just wanted to say it's a shame 02 has done away with this facility.  Currently in Australia and it was a handy (and cheap) way to keep in touch with an 84 yr old aunt in the UK who has no computer and no iPhone. I could type more easily than if I was using just a handheld device. Now I will be in touch less, sending fewer texts. I'm sure it wasn't costing 02 anything to have it there in the background, profits will be made quickly enough elsewhere.  My loss.

Indeed it is, but to try and blackmail O2 because you feel they have stopped you contacting your aunt is a bit silly.

 

As above there are many other ways of getting in touch.
