    As the VM price has only just reduced on Morrisons from 7 to 6 it may be that the APG system will not compare against 6 until Thursday - Asda updates Morrisons prices twice a week, not daily like the others and the next update will be on Wednesday.

    You still paid a very good net price!

    You can leave the phone number blank and invent an email address and postcode.

    Don't do what I did and put the product for name and an x for post code when printing coupons for family members - looks like they have the same
    unique code, even though different.

    I am two days behind and will try and catch up at some point.

    Just rang virgin to give notice, retentions team said they could do me a deal and increase my price for the same as I get now from 15 to 'only' 35 - I am a bad person, I laughed at the CS agent

    Probably going to sign up with BT for 110 mastercard and 180 cashback and hope for a get out of contract free price rise within the 18 months.

    Thanks everyone just waiting for my medication and then im off home. Oh has done a run to the car with the wine. It's was a bit awkward as I changed onto a ward whilstbi was in theatre so they moved my wine into the office but apparently the staff thought it was for them. It's the biggest ward you've seen in your life and you can't give to some and not others.
    So hopefully not long now you've all kept me going thank you x

    did you get your malfunctioning sim working again? Still waiting for the new sims to arrive so I am going to have to use one of my full loyalty cards today.

    I found this about deactivated cards

    https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/Discussions-and-Feedback/Deactivated-sim-card/td-p/837815

    So a card is only valid for 999 days untopped up - nearly 3 years, most of our cards are newer than that.
    But you have to make a chargeable call every 6 months and I think this might be the problem.
    If you put your Simm in and ring the number to check your balance - does this count as its a free call? Possibly not.

    I've been getting OH to put my simm into my phone about once a month and then I do any updates as need be but I am not sure if this is enough to keep a simmm activated?

    To check your Pay As You Go balance:

    1.Press Hotkey 2 on your mobile phone.
    2.Key *#10# then press the call button.
    3.Dial 4444 for free from your mobile.

    Ah, just popped a brand new sim into my "text phone and put number and code into my real phone, worked a treat

    I read on one thread that you also need droid version 5 or higher for the app to work. My phone is 5.1.1 thankfully, gonna disable auto updates so it doesn't need higher version than I have

    I didn't know it was also browser based. For the app, there appears to have been some discussion on O2 threads and an updaye came on my phone this afternoon, a glitch fix I think. I will remembert the browser based and look into it too.
