Shame it's yet something else missing from the 'minute review' 😉

Re: O2 Ask mini review

One thing I have noticed over the weekend is unusual.
Text notifications are turned on, and if you select one it takes you to the conversation (if the phone is unlocked).
However if you then back out of the message it asks for your pin. Not before entering the app, but after coming out of the conversation.
I would presume this is because you already know that conversation and are happy to see it.
The other odd thing is that notifications come through from banks and others that didn't show on Tu. If you try and open one of these then it fails and they do not appear in the list of interactions which is strange...

Re: O2 Ask mini review

Reading the above @gmarkj this just seems to me that the app is full of errors and until these are ironed out, it's hardly worth downloading. Can't see the point of any app which fails to work as it should do.

Hardly any wonder that the Admin staff on here aren't allowed to talk about it yet' ...

Re: O2 Ask mini review

Are they errors or are they trying to get it to work fully as an SMS replacement?
I think it would be useful for some official guidance on how it SHOULD work rather than me guessing what I think, which is most likely not the same.
Without that it might be what I think is an issue is actually a feature/design.
When official communication does come through it will be welcome.

Either way it isn't functioning properly so I fail to see why O2 have 'jumped the gun' releasing it..

Re: O2 Ask mini review

As I say without some sort of input from o2 we have no idea if it is working or not.
@Martin-O2 @Marjo is there anything we can do to get some official update?

Re: O2 Ask mini review

Maybe this is some sort of beta version? Until you can reveive calls from others who don't  have the app it's not an awful lot of use to customers who have no network coverage. Yes you can receive texts from banks and other short numbers but that brings it's own problems.
