    Did you not ask them when they told you to send the ID to them?

    hi matty
    yes I did ask them and they told me it was for security reasons , but was get me is that when they phone they ask me some question from my credit file, what that go to do with a O2 wallet I don't know??????? . and also my O2 wallet account is blocked and they won't unblocked until that get this id .

    Other than having foil sleeve/protection is it worth the risk with this (these) contactless card(s) ?? (especially if attached to your main bank account!)

    I obtained an AA pre-paid card when o2 Money annoyingly ditched their previous o2 money card, which I loved.

    Getting an o2 contactless card before 1/6/12 saves £5 upgrade to card fee.

    Is the ID code they want 3 digits?

    If yes that should have been sent to your mobile phone in a text message telling you to keep it safe and delete the text.

    I have got passed this but on the website "O2 Dashboard" the option Load Money In / Register a Debit Card does nothing.

    Thus I have a balance of zero :(

    I have set up a linked back account which says "Unverified" and I am not sure if this is the issue.

    I have requested my Visa card which it says is on its way.

    Also don't forget if you already have a RFID card in your wallet than can clash when you try and make a con-tactless transaction.

    One last comment, so many passwords....

    1st to login to O2 Website
    2nd to login to O2 Money
    3rd to make a payment

    Update, before "Load Money In / Register a Debit Card" works you have to select "Add A Card" from the right hand lower menu.

    The "Load Money In / Register A Debit Card" then says "Load Money In / Name You Gave The Card".

    I think the user interface needs some work and also an increase on the security timeout value.

    I received an email today saying I had been specially selected to try their app (and to comment on their forum to make it better)

    What a cheek, it has been out nearly a fortnight !!!

    How secure are these payments? Has anyone had any dodgyactivity gone through their account using mobile payments?

    In my opinion, any payment method which involves credit carddetails going through your mobile phone software can easily be hacked!!
