Hi @pgn 

Room 101 is now open for next batch of suggestions thumbsup


Thanks, @Mi-Amigo @.

 

I'd like to propose the totally random manner in which O2's "roaming" SMS messages are sent.

Either send one whenever you start to roam, or not - but not at some random time, often days, after you have started to roam onto another network... 🙄

 

Room 101 beckons, unless O2 can defend their haphazard "Welcome to ....." SMS text messages!

Definitely no Roaming Reminders in Room 101 for me, I too always get them anyway - but here the name is the clue, it's a reminder, because you should be aware of the t&c's of any service that you sign up for....basically, read the small print - the smaller the print, the less they want you to read it, and thus the more important it probably is to you unamused

Exactly my opinion @Projectionist . Just do a bit of research before you travel anywhere with O2 and you really can avoid any charges. In fairness to O2, travel information is freely available and the print is 'not so small' wink

Re: Off Topic Room 101

Now the only time i get that is when I have a number of O2 tabs open on PC, and I haven't returned to one for ages. When I eventually go back to it, I will find a survey request waiting...

Not every day though.

Re: Off Topic Room 101

Odd moments of solitude are to be treasured, but true loneliness, regardless of the throng around you, yes, that can go into Room 101. I second that.
