I WONDER IF TOMORROW 03 NUMBERS WILL START TO WORK NOW TOO!
On both Lyca Mobile's landing page, and offers page, it lists credit £30 and get extra £10 free.
No mention of terms or conditions - just...
"Free £10 credit with £30 top up"
HOWEVER - when you buy a top up, they come as a £10 and £20 credit. Despite failing to mention any of the above being subject to any terms or conditions. WIth 30 odd lines of full-page width small print - hidden in this it says...
Get £10 free credit when you top-up your Lycamobile PLUS SIM for single top-up denomination of £30. A combination of different denominations equal to £30 will not applicable for this promotion. Free credit top-ups amount is limited to a total of 3 top-up per calendar month. Any subsequent top-ups in this calendar month will not receive any free credit. The free credit will last for 30 days from the date of top-up. The offer may be withdrawn at any time in full or in part at the absolute discretion of Lycamobile UK Ltd. unless the offer is withdrawn, it is valid from 18.06.2010 until 31.07.2010. Any withdrawal will be notified at http://www.lycamobile.co.uk.
So is the UK really so bad that you require to check terms and conditions that without being even hinted at in the offer - make it unavailable from top up outlets? I started using PAYG after having a contract that was so poor they ended it early. Sorry - you probably need to have been a "Three" customer for this to make sense.
Last month's stunt was "our low price calls only apply to £30 top ups" making calls 400% more expensive than advertised - but this was not even mentioned on their site! It took the best part of an hour's calls to India's 'finest' to fix this.
It's hardly surprising Lycatel are being investigated presently!
