    How much is a text in Three PAYG plan? 18th Apr 17 at 1:26 PM
    I bought a Three Pay As You Go Plan, which advertises 2p per text. However, as I checked my balance several times after texting, they charge me 3p per text. Am I missing something here?

    The Three web site still shows 3p per min, 2p per text etc...

    On contracts, the price of a bill is often shown on the My3 App as being "+1p", I wonder if they stick a spurious 1p extra on PAYG? I only use a PAYG SIM in a remote alarm installation, so can't easily check if they deduct the correct amount from the balance.

    If you request a delivery report, it costs 1p. Turn delivery reports off in your phone settings

    Delivery requests are shown as 1.2p each, I wonder if they charge an additional 1p after every 5th one.

  • You're right, of course. How silly of me. After all, all my work is solely focused on my own personal circumstance? https://t.co/m6DHzFUjzg

  • RT @ARJMOR: @MartinSLewis It may well be kind of random, but the algorithm used has a bias to the unpopular seats.

  • It seems what Ryanair is saying is "don't pay and we leave you the seats we don't think people want and they're in the middle."
