They didn't ask anything about age as far as I recall (the oul memory isn't too good....).
I made lots of misspellings, used no punctuation, had atrocious grammar, said "like" and "OMG" and l33t a lot - that seemed to fool them.



they prob just sent you a pity sim!! (ya sad auld git )

won't accept any of my cards to pay for membership. It says:

"one of the products you are buying is not allowed for paying with credit"


edit: just noticed that their card payments mechanism is not set up yet and you have to buy a voucher from a payzone outlet.

could they not just have waited until they had things set up properly!

.. from 48 ...Thanks for getting in touch with us here at 48.
Apologies for our card payment method not working, I’m sorry if we have inconvenienced you in any way.
As you would expect, with a new network, we are currently having a few teething problems, card payments being the main one, but we are on it and working to resolve the issue ASAP.
I have attached a link below which we update regularly so keep an eye for any new updates http://help.48months.ie/home

Got the SIM and on the network. Does anyone know if you use the SIM can you then port over your number later? or do you have to port now?

P.S. The web site says all porting is disabled, porting requests will be queued until Monday: http://help.48months.ie/home

I got my SIM this morning, ported over my number, went to the shop and topped up by 10euro(as you cant top up online)... But when i log into my account it says i have no credit, but when i check my balance ringing 1740 it says i have 11 euro..
Response from 48months is I will have to wait until Monday to get it sorted as they have gone home for the weekend and they are sorry that I will have no phone for the weekend.... What a disaster...

If you topped by 10 EUR, then surely the 10 EUR was used to pay your 'membership fee' and hence it would make sense that your balance is zero?

A mobile phone network that don't work the weekends? How ridiculous, so you've no phone for the weekend? That's a bit irresponsible of them as well really. Looks like the network is also run by 18 to 22 year olds.

No my 10euro top up was not used to pay my membership.. If I call the top up number 1740 now it says I have 11 euro credit.... But there is only 1 way to pay for membership and that is on the website and when I log in to my account online it says I have zero balance...

It costs you 10 EUR via a 'membership fee'.

You then need to top up for other services such as data.

Its just one 10euro per month... They just call it a membership and you renew it each month... It is a great deal, if it would just start....
