Someone said he is from O2 and can provide me with a new cheaper contract to transfer my VM broadband to O2, and the number is 02045799973. I hung up the first time, but he kept calling for a few days. I called customer service to ask, but they said they were unsure if VM was transferring my broadband to O2. Anyone know its a sammer or something for real.
