Found 25th Sep 2008
I turned on 'Delivery Reports' on my Orange phone about a week ago and have just gone online to check my bill and it says

cost (£)
voice calls 0.030
text messages 3.724
data 0.000
other items 0.000
Total unbilled costs 3.754

I was thinking 'Hold on a minute, I have unlimited texts why have I been charged £3.74*"
*£1 was for international texts for my friend whose on holiday.


So I checked my itemised billing and see about a thousand of these:

Orange are obviously charging me for recieving delivery reports which is pretty scandelous, of course I should have read the terms and conditions so it's my bad.

Just giving people a heads up if they didn't know.

ive never been charged for delivery reports! are you sure it wasn't multimedia messages or something like that?

good to know, i too have unlimited texts, dont use reports, and certainly wont now

Yes we found that out after my getting our eldest the £10 sim deal, she sent over 500 messgaes in the first month (unlimited free after 7pm) and got charged a delivery report for each of them! I nearly fell over, we have used pretty much all the networks at one time and never been charged a delivery report. Think they should tell you clearly when you sign up myself.

It's scandelous really.

they only charge on contracts not p&g though which is odd.

Have you been charged aswell?

i had this too. cost me 8pounds my first month, turned them off after. went on shop and made them show me where it says about this charge and unfortnalty it does in very small print.

also beware with free mms, dont send more than one media item in a message cos u get charged and dont send to mulitiple people cos also get charged for that.
