    Are Blyk about to do a Woolworths?

    We have not had an ad from Blyk for 12 days now.

    Their old package worth £27ish of calls and texts is being replaced by one worth £15 (albeit offering more than just calls and texts) and call prices will be upped by 60%

    Has the same happened with other Blyk users ads?

    Are they going under?

    So a new ad arrived today - for Yell - the first in ages.

    yeah to be fair I have never had loads of ads so I never really thought about it. Hope they dont its handy as a back up

    Some days at the start I could get a couple of ads some days - but now its been one in 2ish weeks.

    Has anyone else found that Blyk seems to use far more data than other phone companies when accessing the same sites?

    I'm finding that I'm now spending loads on blyk... If I make a call and it goes to voicemail, so i hang up straight away, it costs me £0.24... so after 4 attempts to contact someone that is almost £1!!!
    I've had problems getting my free topup, and a lot of my friends have been having major problems over the last couple of weeks.
    As soon as I manage to get a PAC code out of them I am moving to a contract with Vodafone. My friend is doing the same in 10 days time when he is 18.

    Yeah - sinking ship.

    Its all very well saying it was free - but it went from being usable with a fiver a month top up - to being a waste of time.

    Its now an emergency car phone for me with no top ups anymore - and its getting no ads now.

    nooooooooooo i hope not i lost my sim card ages ago and ordered a replacement (£10) last week so my lil bro could use it!
    Hope they dont go down after just spending out

    Yeah - it used to be free for one replacement sim a year.

    Would you not have been better just applying for a new sim rather than reissuing the old one?

    The charging per minute thing as really killed it too - as if you use it in a bad coverage area you can pay pounds to get a minutes worth of calls.
