So that was the text i recieved from O2, and here are the catches...

1. You have to be an exsisting O2 pay and go customer.
2. You call the number (which is free) and you tell the person who answers i recieved a text saying i get free mins or txts with no catches, and then you have to listen to them for 2 mins, trying to sell you a £10 a month top up contract where you get X amount of texts and mins.

If you just say no, i don't want that, they say "ok, which of the following would you like, free minutes, texts or internet bolt ons. I said minutes, and recieved 50 free minutes of call time to any landline or mobile, to be used by the end of the month.

Its as easy as that!

Isn't this offer only available to those who receives that text? And if so, they would already know about this deal

Its not as if they can't afford it! I just look at it like, robbing from the absolutely filthy sticking rich, who have over charged us for calls since the creation of mobile phones, and giving to the poor people who cant afford credit :-D

lying is great! keep doing it every one, im doing that on my lunch break!

This will not work. The text is sent out to customers who have yet to choose a free allowance that the majority of pay and go customers are entitled to. Others that have been offered a few extra minutes or texts are simply offered that if they spend silly amounts on pay and go- hence the offer of pay monthly.

so this does not work on PAYG?

Anyone willing to say otherwise?

..and that make it perfectly legal then :?

just rang. i'm on PAYG. Have never bolted anything on, or got bundles etc. And yes this msg is simply about getting you on the phone to let you know about the free bundles that all PAYG customers are entitled to - thats what the guy told me, maybe because I haven't used my payg enough. Great, as I was unaware of the bundles, so I now get 300 free texts every time I top up. It all depends on how much you top up (he checked my history, I'm a pretty low user).

As for being dishonest, not at all as you still only get given what you're entitled to.

So i'm better off for the phone call, and thanks to the OP!

Thanks OP just got 50 minutes free calls starting in two days time for a month, didn't even try to sell me anything.

this isn't exactly a new thing

lying is lying

overcharged is a relative term. to me the price of something might be insignificant, to some one else it might be expensive - and vice versa. it all comes down to personal circumstances (education, luck, family money, working hard, etc)

justifying theft, be it from a rich person or a poor person based upon your own perception of the victims value of the stolen item, rather than the act of theft, is morally depraved act and weak in logical substance.

OMG lighten up! Its not stealing, or lying, they currently have this offer on. I am mearly telling people how to get it! End of :thumbsup:

For goodness sake, some posters really tie deals up in complication that there doesnt need to be!

This isnt like a "free" download online that only some are entitled to.

You are an O2 customer and ring up - if you are entitled you will get something, if you arent you wont - simple as that! Hardly "stealing" - you are calling up about an offer, it is up to O2 whether they give you it or not!

Hot from me!

..No you aren't ! Stop lying !

whats the number to call? i clicked GO TO DEAL and it just took me to the usual o2.co.uk website??

In the words of the great Chris Rock

Example

Man
Of course I came straight home

Woman

I'm on O2 simplicity. You guys think that'll work for me also?

+1

oh my...i don't understand why people are categorising this as lying or stealing, it isn't'! Every customer is entitled to receiving this regardless of whether they get the text or not, its yet another promotion from O2 to encourage customers to like them more, and hence top up more in the future. If they cared so much about those extra people opting in for the promotion (who didnt get the text) then they would check if they actually did recieve this message, They can do that btw ( i used to work at an o2 call centre). O2 encourage promotions to all PayGo customers, giving out something for free is looked upon positively at their company.

wats the number that u call? ive clicked on GO TO DEAL and it just comes up with the normal o2 website

Is this not the O2 Treats that have been around for years?

Is this just PAYG or contract as well?

dataload;5947739

This is a long-standing deal but just look at the number of people that have benefited from this thread already. I'm sure for this reason it can be excused.

that's the o2 treat everyone should have it. Every 3 months u have different option. YOu can choose to have free mins to landline, mobile, or text.

call 2344

Just called and was asked when I received the text (said earlier today). They look at your usage, payments and any extras you already get. They put me on the Treats thing (5% discount, which I thought I was already on) and then just asked if I'd like 50 extra minutes to use this month or internet access. No attempt to sell me anything was made

If you don't ask, you don't get ;-)

They've been doing this on contracts for ages and to be honest, you get such good deals on minutes and texts (on a contract) that they're virtually worthless.

Only just recently, they've stopped doing the extra free minutes or texts and now give you offers like a month's free rental at Blockbusters, a 30 day trial of the Gourmet Society (2 meals for the price of 1 at selected outlets) or discounts on days out (paintballing, ballooning etc).

The number to dial if you're on a contract is 2211. This is also free.

is this for iphone pay as you go as well?

I just rang up saying, just recieved a text etc. guy on the phone says theres a lot of spam going on and he asked for my number to see if im eligible for this offer. gave him my number and he checked after a few seconds said i am not eligible.

is that because its a pay as you go iphone?

This does not replace treats. I am still and already was on treats.

Applies to PAYG, yes.

You could ring up, not lie about a text, but simply ask if you're entitled to any bundles going. They'll look at your usage and suggest what will save you money based on that. I was suggested the texts bundle - but i asked about something with minutes and was offered that (took the texts bundle).

2 things: Bundles and Treats. Different.

(the OP did state that this is Pay and Go btw)

I, too, got it confused with treats ;-)

But I used to be P&G and had the online 300 tariff and got 300 texts free every month just for topping up. I switched to pay monthly because I was being too stingy about making calls and staying within my texting quota And I wanted a lovely new phone.

Now I'm sim-only and get more minutes and texts than I know what to do with for £15/month (9 months free on 18 month contract) and I use the phone freely. A much better way to be (for me). Though I will need to upgrade with a P&G phone eventually when my current one dies...

This Isn't A Deal
