    Ah alas my phone doesn't tell me how many calls I've made! 
    Has anyone reached the limit yet? Does it errrm tell you when you have reached the maximum?

    I have a disability that makes phone calls very difficult, so this is a frustrating free entry for me. 

    Can someone tell me what happens when you call the 0330 number for an entry, please, and roughly how long a single telephone entry takes? Thanks ❤

    Also, in the T&Cs, it states this:

    ONLINE
    Entrants can also enter the Competition a maximum of 60 times (including free entries) via the Website.

    Does this mean you can get 60 (paid) entries online, and that it include free entries made via the 0330 number, not that you can get 60 free online entries?

    I couldn't find the online entry but to enter it takes about 40 seconds. They say a spiel and then it reads out your number and then you have to press 1 to confirm the number and then it says that you have entered. In total about 40 seconds a time. 
    Thank you so much. Sincerely appreciate the information!

    Could anyone please confirm that they have been able to enter free of charge by phone? Thank you
    So far, I can enter using my PAYG O2 mobile, but trying to use the EE mobile with a bundle of free standard calls only gets silence, no ring tone when dialling and nothing once it seems to connect.
    Also:
    "Unfortunately we can only take entries into a competition from a valid mobile number....." so my BT free standard rate calls on my landline don't get accepted. Rats!

    That's weird, I'm entering from my EE pay monthly number and it works fine.
    Is your EE number pay monthly or pay as you go?
    And if you text/call someone, does their phone show your correct mobile number?

    My EE phone (pay monthly, bundle of free calls and data) worked fine for similar competitions (Scottish Cash Register) in the past couple of weeks and the number repeated back was correct. However, for this one I get nothing. Might be location (in the wilds of Scotland) and the mast signal may be degraded. Will update if it changes.
