Quite a specific query here ...
When you set up a group for webtexting on 02's website, there is an option to 'share' the group with another O2 customer.
The way it works is this. Say I want to share a group with 'Frank'. Frank is then sent an invitation from O2. If Frank is an O2 customer, all he has to do is text '[GroupName][Space][Your Text]' to a special 086 number and his text will then be distributed to all people in the group.
Now, two questions
- is the subscriber charged for each text at the standard rate (from their credit / bill etc); or are their webtext allocation reduced by the number of texts?
- is the group available to Frank on his webtext so that he can send the message online himself (which would be free).
Am looking for any experience of this service anyone might have.
