25c to txt a UK mobile is pretty steep.

Just on that, for the 10e membership per month, are you left with 10e phone credit or would you have to buy additional credit in order to send a txt abroad or if you so wanted - call a landline (once your 20 minutes had elapsed)?

They've just posted a seriously stylish and expensive ad on YouTube, wow .....

Wonder what that ad was originally for.

So is this just a scam or is it real?
Too lazy to read the whole thread in the middle of the night

Yeah that's the email I got as well. Although O2 take ages to send free SIMs so I wouldn't worry.

Your question about making international texts, or extra calls to landlines, I assume you need additional credit for those calls. That's why the top-up page is on the web site. Looks to me that the €10 per month is a membership fee only. That allows you make lots of calls and texts to mobiles, but it's not available as call credit for other calls.

If people are after unlimited data, and not so much unlimited calling three are still far superior imo -

top up by 20e and get free unlimited internet for the month, unlimited texts to any network, unlimited three to three calls and free weekend calls to any network

not to mention the 20e credit you still have left

You need to buy additional credit.

My thoughts exactly, they are referring to you paying for a "membership", unusual. I could be completely wrong but I wouldn't change over just yet.

Video was apparently made by this Irish advertising company specifically for '48'.

Play the fist 40 seconds of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3L4spg8vyo in the background while watching the ad form the start. Works well

10 euro a month for unlimited calls and texts to any network.... That is a great deal, better than any deal that has ever been offered in Ireland before and people on here just keep knocking it !!!

Why ???

Do they not like a real Bargain.....

I ain't knocking it I think it's great. If I get the SIM, can get on the network and actually get the deal, it'll be fantastic .......

So, if I already have an o2 account where they have my real date of birth on file, won't telefonica and 48months be able to access that data too?

They wont be able to. They have you date of birth for data protection purposes not for age validation purposes.
