    Unless you are sure it came from O2 and not a 3rd party then I would advise no, and even if it is from O2 it still sounds suspect.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,240 ✭✭✭hussey


    100 sounds a bit much - ring o2 and ask
    (unless it's 10 a month for 10 months)

    I got 80 (20x4mnths) free txt's for saying "thanks" in a text


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,382 ✭✭✭petes


    Got the same this morning. This was about earlier in the year methinks. I didnt receive the text but was on AH and someone put the number up and what to reply with. Got so many texts a month. So that worked. Whos going to be the guinea pig?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,424 ✭✭✭joejoem

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,382 ✭✭✭petes

    yeah i'm quite a heavy texter too, but 45 free texts a month is better than a kick up the arse!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,350 ✭✭✭skywalker_208


    i tried this but it said im not eligible!


  • Posts: 0 ✭✭✭✭ Chana Icy Sextant


    o2 customers only. If i remember corrrectly they had a problem with the last offer as so many people replied, so maybe this is a bit stingier, only those who get the message get the texts?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 449 ✭✭spanner_head


    just sent a text message to that number and got a message back. I'm not eligible to avail of this offer :confused:

    o2 send me alerts i signed up for months after i had changed to meteor! free as well. they are a tad slow


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,423 ✭✭✭tinkerbell


    Damn! I must ring them, I never got this offer :(:(

    Bastads!

    EDIT: I rang, apparantly this offer was also out in April! She hadn't a clue what I was talking about.

    I texted the number and it said you are not eligible for this offer, oh the rejection!


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,984 ✭✭✭✭Lump


    They obviously send it to regular texters like azezil as a reward... ie you spend lots with them, you get a little back. Keeps the customers sweet.

    So over 600 texts a month isn't enough?

    I didnt get this offer either :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,984 ✭✭✭✭Lump


    Obviously not if some people are sending 50 a month.

    in this world, pre judging people is a common pratice, i tend to do it with peoples mobile networks, attaching different characteristics to people on differnt networks.

    eg:

    Vodafone customers - fairly boring run of the mill person, not too much imaginataion, probable man utd supporter, likes the safety of a crowd

    o2 customers - either a girl, an effeminate man or a rich person. probably enjoys watching rugby

    meteor customer - possibly either a skanger, a pinch penny or a foreign immagrent, either way its someone with a low disposable income probably living in dublin.

    guess which i am ;)

    Just by glancing through my phone book ferdi, it appears that none of your prejudices hold true.

    Anyways, I don't think you can possibly read too deep into what network someone is on.

    What about the rest of the country? You've named about 50% of people in about 6 short sentences (depressing actually!)

    Never seen a skanger using meteor, they mostly use vodafone down in my neck of teh woods


  • Posts: 0 ✭✭✭✭ Chana Icy Sextant


    that's cause you're neck of the woods has about 3 scangers! And don't say otherwise, i know New Ross well! also, Meteor isn't very popular outside of Dublin.
