This one goes out to the one ...

Wednesday, May 7. 2008

... No. Not what you are thinking! Although 90s dance fans might know how the above sentence should be concluded. It goes out to my friend working with vodafone.

I'm subscribed to O2's Internet Pack M since about four weeks - since I had a similar pack before I get it discounted 5EUR/month instead of 10EUR. I'm also subscribed to their Communication Center Pack, which provides e-mail forwarding via MMS or SMS 50 free Web-SMS and a few related services for another 5EUR/month. Today O2 announced, that the features of this pack will be included in a new Internet Pack S - and the old communication center pack's features will be part of all superior Internet packs. So I'll be saving those 5EUR!

I've also subscribed to a new o2 genion s contract through debitel, which provides free call forwarding into the o2 network without a monthly fee. Since I'm subscribed to a Genion L pack on my main contract, with a special rate, I get calls to landlines and into the o2 network for free from anywhere in Germany for 25EUR, I'm also still subscribed to a student rate with 100 free SMS a month.

So starting from June I'll have free calls to o2 and German landlines, 100 free sms, 200MB of data traffic, 50 free web-sms, free e-mail forwarding via sms/mms + reachability under a landline number. For 30EUR/month!!!

Beat this!

O2 "forces" customers into online billing

Saturday, April 12. 2008

This morning I got a letter from O2 telling me, thay would change my bill to an online bill, unless I would object using an online form. O2 has been advertising its online billing services for month now, offering like 1EUR in bonus credits for a change to this more environment friendly option. Obviously this insignificant incentive didn't work, and so they are doing it by force now. But in my opinion they use unfair methods! The form to opt-out of the online billing option is not hosted on the main o2-server but on some extern ressource and is far from responsive. If you are trying to opt-out at the moment you won't be too succesful since it is overloaded.
