Hi @simon13 

You need to check whether you have enough credit on your phone.

Otherwise call 4445 tomorrow.

You can't send texts to chargeable shortcodes from your bundle allowances.

Your bundle texts are only for texting other UK mobiles (and landlines).

You must top up over the amount required to buy your bundle to enable you to have credit to send texts to chargeable numbers.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
