    £10 credit to burn! What should I do?

    I've gonna have a sim with £10 on it which had to put on there to get the phone on PAYG. I don't want to use the credit for mins and text cus I'm gonna get contract. So then apart from selling it for £3, can I use this credit like with a debit card and buy what I want? or am I stuck to buying silly little apps and games?

    I give set amounts to charity regularly so wanted to use this credit on stuff I need. Which is why I didn't want to waste it on 'silly little apps and games'.

    I spent all mine on Betnow when CPW forced me to buy one with a new phone. Just made lots of safe bets and got pretty much all of it back (except some which went on paying for the texts which you use to make the bet)

    I'll correct my previous post:

    'I don't gamble and don't like to waste money or take interest in adult entertainment or similar kind of things which I don't agree with".

    Then why are you paying for a phone which you intend to put onto a contract?

    I might be able to use the credit on the networks Website to buy stuff from there but not sure. Will look into it more in a bit.

    Because the phone works out cheaper on PAYG and then buy a contract separately. If I was lazy I'd have just bought the phone with a contract which is more expensive for the deal.

    I don't understand how buying it is cheaper than getting it for free on a contract?

    Cheapest contracts with phone are like £20 for 24 months = £480!

    I can get sim only 12 months or 24 months for £10 or 30 day rolling for £10. So this makes the buying contract separate with separate phone cheaper!

    I put £15 a month on my o2 phone to get free unlimited text and web and out of that I have ten people on myo2 family for £12.76 so they can call each other for free. With the free calls and texts and internet giving me email and facebook on the move I was never spending any of my balance and O2 was giving me cash back every three months, at one point I had almost £50 in PAYG credit.
