    Has anybody else noticed the amount of text messages that fail using these
    sim cards.
    It says 'Message Failed' but sends it anyway.
    Me and the other half got fed up with people asking us why we sent the
    message twice.
    Now we ignore it. They receive it 9 times out of 10
    Is O2 trying to get us to use our 300 free messages quicker cos they want to
    make a buck before the end of the month.

    I've noticed this too. At first I used to resend but after discovering the
    messages were being sent I ignore it as well.

    I've also noticed that whether or not I think I've used 300 txts mine always
    run out around the 10th of each month, despite them starting on the 1st of
    each month! I'm sure I'm geting ripped off. I wish there was some
    notification of how many free txts are left because I don't fancy trying to
    keep a record myself.

    i've noticed this also at times, personally i find it more irritating
    that these sims dont offer Delivery Reports on sent txts.
    got three of these sims and cant get Delivery Reports on any
    of 'em, regardless of which fone they're put in.

    thats because o2 don't support them, you can get a report however
    another way, just type *0# (starzerohash) before typing your text with
    no spaces (ie *0#hi, blah blah).
