Just had a very random thought, how much does it cost to send a text to 81111 or the radio shows on bbc radio 1? And does anyone know if it still costs if you have free unlimited texts on your contract....

Just incase if anyone knows and has 20 seconds to spare to enlighten me! Thanks!

check your balance... send a text... recheck your balance.
i think its normally rate, but it depends on your network provider if its included in your free texts
I have 50p in my head... not sure why though.. lol
I think its 25p and is outside of your allowance :thumbsup:
Thanks to all the replies. Cant do the 'balance' thing because im on contract. anyway, thanks again and hello michelleleemoo, the roleplay worked and we saw 'state of play' using your ticket the other week! have a good week all!
The BBC don't charge you for texts, so it's just your standard network rate, and should be included in any free text packages you have. At the moment, the only source I can give you for this is this page: bbc.co.uk/mob…eb/ Down at the bottom, it says "Text Messages to the BBC cost 10-15p, depending on your network". Which is basically a fancy way of saying standard rate.

WTF? It's an imposter. I know it's an imposter by the mis-spelling of 'bout.

ha ha :thumbsup: I'll just send a text and check, back in a mo..........

hmmm, sent 2 and my balance still the same so maybee's they are included in yr allowance. ? i'll check balance again later and post back if charged :-)
Cheers michelle, making a massive effort there all because im scared of spending 20p if i does charge lol. but all appreciated! I've always heard texts cost your standard network rate but its never stated if you have free texts what happens.
I thought it was free to send a text to BBC on 81111, but in fact it cost me 10p per text even though I have unlimited free texts available on my virgin mobile plan. I suspect it was Virgin that charged me 10p rather than the BBC. Next time, I won’t bother with a text, but send an email or use twitter/facebook instead to contact the BBC.
