Thankfully they haven't removed it from existing sim-only accounts that already included it when they began, but it's a blow for people using the service who may be downgrading from Pay Monthly to simplicity once their contract runs out (me for example)!
It used to be the case that ITS was included for free with any tariff with 600 minutes or more, now they've changed it to be any tariff at £35/month or more...
I phone to another EU country on and off, and send plenty of international texts - now when my contract runs out and I downgrade to simplicity, the bill won't be as much cheaper as it would have been... Thanks a lot O2

When I got ITS free on my tariff I thought great, now I can text my friends and family abroad and worry a little less, (I think it used to be 10p per text back then ), but if I lose ITS in the future (which will happen when I switch to simplicity I'll have to go back to using services like m1.be - not the most comfortable way of texting, but definitely the cheaper solution...
With regards to calls abroad, compare 85p without ITS to 17p with ITS for calls to Europe... the difference is gigantic, and as it is the same for video calls, I can video-call my mates in Europe for a couple of minutes and only pay 35p or so. Without ITS that would be prohibitive, and I don't think these EU rulings can affect this price as it is domestic.

Wweres the link to say ITS is only for £35 and above, as I can only find information that says its free with 600 mins or above, And to think i was going to sign up with the, think I go else were

Also, on the page explaining ITS (http://www.o2international.co.uk/callin ... ayITS.aspx), it now says "If your tariff is £35 per month or above you benefit from International Traveller Service (ITS) for no extra charge."
