From: 4444 Msg: O2 are now keeping 02 to 02 texts free for ever. So tell your friends. Send this to 20 friends and recieve a £50 top up 4 spreading the word. The credit will be sent to you within 2 minutes of your last text. Thanks from 02

good joke though

I would suspect O2 would know more people's numbers than you do - and it does seem to be inciting you to spam!
#3
Bull lol, instant delete.
#4
I wonder if its actually sanctioned by O2 or is one of those premium rate spam txt things? If I could ever get through to O2 I'd ask ;-)
#5
I am surprised you even need to ask.
#6
Even if it was true its not very specific, does the 20 people need to be on o2? I dont think I know 20 people with o2.

I have o2 and haven't received this message, but if I did I'd phone o2 and ask before I started texting everyone lol.

It was just a vehicle to express my displeasure with O2s non existant customer service. Has anyone ever got through?

Pay monthly number, or it says dieal 202 from your phone.

You really needed to ask?

It's like those emails you get that say "send this email to 20 friends in the next 5 minutes and you will meet the person of your dreams this week!!!"

I wonder if those are real.... :roll:

So its just maliciousness then? as stupid as that? Not a company somehow making money thru high charge premium txts or something? Cos I wondered what the 'from 4444' bit was?
