I never gave this useless Gmail email address to O2
This is what I find interesting........how would O2 find this address ?

I think I remember what happened -- when I downloaded the O2 Priority app, this Gmail address (which is linked to the Android OS on the phone) was already populated in the "email" field for O2 Priority offers. I must have kept it as that as would only read those emails on the phone and would not use Gmail for any other purpose. I didn't think it would update the email address for all O2 mass emails (i.e. everything bar billing- or order-related emails specific to my account). Otherwise useful non-spammy emails like O2 Travel changes and the 50% extra data offers had passed me by as I forgot to ever look at this Gmail ...
(I only use that Gmail address for Google Play Store and the fact that I was forced to create a Google login for the phone (Android)).

That explains some of it then @GJD Personally I never wanted Gmail. I added it to access O2 only. I kept my other email address and things actually work brilliantly now. Hate to admit it....but I am glad I set up gmail

Im not with O2! But because my GiffGaff line is so bad, im gonna go to O2 (my roommate have great line with O2. That's weird, because i was sure that O2 and GiffGaff are basically the same)
