Text and Web Text Limits

Hey all, I'm on Text and Web.
I usually get 12k texts for £10 a month, then I spend £7.50 of it for 500mb internet. I topped up last week and I've realised that I must have only got around 3k texts instead, also I didn't get an O2 surprise code.
Just wondering if something may have gone wrong authorising the top-up with my account or whether they've changed everything? I no longer have the receipt but it said top-up successful on it.
If they've changed it then it's nice of them to let us know..

Thanks.

Re: Text and Web Text Limits

Guys is there any tariffs that offer more than 3k texts for £10 - £15 a month? I'm on Text n Web and now I'm limited to 3k, if I swap to O2 unlimited will I still be stuck with 3k?
I'm changing networks if that's the case. Been with O2 for about 6 years and this has really annoyed me to the limit.

Re: Text and Web Text Limits

Part of the Email reply from O2, to answer any further questions about the new text limit:

We've recently revised the fair usage policy for unlimited text this is
because of the same.
We?ve done this because we were experiencing very high levels of gateway
abuse where fraudulent customers were breaching our terms and causing a
business issue. The only way to control this abuse was to change the
fair usage limit for all Pay & Go customers that receive unlimited texts
as part of their allowance
The cap on unlimited text apply to all our tariffs which offers
unlimited texts. So, you'll get the same number of text in O2 Unlimited
and Simplicity Unlimited Text tariff as you're getting in your current
tariff.
As a one off, I've added 500 texts to your account valid till 06
November.
We've an O2 Treat for you. Please dial 2211 (free) to get one.
If there's anything else I can help you with just let me know.
