FREE texts to ANY network ANYTIME on prepay O2

Even though its already on the mobiles board HERE I think this deserves a mention in bargain alerts


taken from Siliconrepublic.com........

With the majority of Irish mobile users on prepaid price plans, existing and potential O2 customers will be happy to hear the mobile operator has a new price plan that offers free texts for life to any mobile network at any time.

The new price plan, O2 Experience, is for prepaid customers who top up their phone credit by at least €20 per month and will be available from tomorrow, Friday 1 February.
While new customers can sigh up for the O2 price plan until 30 April 2008, existing O2 customers can also switch over from the existing prepaid Speakeasy model.
This free text offering makes O2 the first mobile operator to give its prepaid customers the option to avail of free texts, no matter the network or time they call at.
The O2 Experience plan also provides for mobile users who do not text heavily: again, it is for those topping up by a minimum of €20 per month and they can choose the ‘free unlimited calls’ option allowing them to make free calls to ten O2 numbers of their choosing.
Also, for those who spend a minimum of €30 per month, the free calls and texts come together as a bundle.
Vodafone currently offers its prepaid customers free texts for life for a minimum top-up of €20 per month, but this is only for texts sent to other Vodafone customers

*** A minimum charge of 5c applies to all connected domestic calls.

This is rediculous. I mean it's great for people on prepay, but i switched to bill pay thinking twas a better deal and ever since its been all offers for prepays. is there any advantage to being on bill pay except the cheaper and better range of phone?

I wouldn't get too excited about it unless you rarely call people on another network.
There's a few obvious selling points but as apollodjs said according to the new price plans no matter what you sign up to if you want to call another network its 49c per minute all the time.
Also voicemail is 15c all times now too, @ least on the old plans its reduced to 12c for the weekends.
Do they really think this will attract people from other networks
