Nokia claim to have a 2x7 chat support line, maybe they can talk you through adding a contact? <https://www.nokia.com/phones/en_gb/support/nokia-2720-v-flip-user-guide#accordion-header-2>

I used to have an Alcatel mobile, which had intuitive operation, but I have now got a Nokia 2720 Flip. I am not used to the OS it uses, KaiOS. The manual says that to add a contact, I should press the Scroll button and choose the correct op

Seems unlikely, given Virgin Media's broadband and TV empire. I doubt they would rebrand as 'O2 TV', and a merged O2 broadband (some Openreach, some DOCSIS) could get confusing(*). Wouldn't be surprised if the Virgin Mobile name gets re

Happened to notice that yesterday they had an offer 10GB for £7/m instead of the £12.05/m I was paying after the april rise data rollover remains and virgin still do European roaming, so I've more than made up for a few years CPI/R

Sky have brought back EU roaming charges, but O2 (it's MNO) hasn't.

IDmobile are on three network and have inclusive roaming where Three itself doesn't. Pretty sure plusnet and EE are the same.

Are there any cases where a MVNO has a different roaming policy from its MNO?

I was surprised that Mrs C's Sky SIM roamed to Orange and not Movistar (aka Telefonica) in Spain last week. My EE SIM grabbed Orange (as you'd expect)

I think O2 are keeping roaming as a USP, as their parent is Telefonica, the marginal cost to them is around zero.

Back to bad old habits for Three. Quintupled the PAYG prices (losing me £8 of value in my 321 SIM - thieves) and scrapped EU roaming despite proclaiming [ironically on the side of a bus] that they never would. Better to find a more tru

I've not had a limit for either up or down for about 10 years !

I don't have a limit at all for upstream, and it's quite a recent tariff.

That's always been the case. Although I do recall some of the early ADSL packages had different limits for upstream and downstream data ?

I think that its as important to note is that mobile data is charged for, or at least counts against you package, regardless of the direction its travelling in... Dave

Posted: 20 Days 19 Hours ago by: Wilf

That's true. The main point is that in a whatsapp call (or other data-based call) each user establishes a connection that they are responsible for, regardless of what connection conditions the other user has at their disposal. It mig

That is true except that, if you're not on WiFi, you will only pay directly for the data used on the call if it is not covered by some sort of inclusive data package. The OP appears to have such a package, and won't pay extra unless he

Re: Maybe a silly question (thread)

Not quite. Either or both of you could be on a WiFi connection. Whichever of you is on WiFi will obviously NOT have to pay data charges for the call. Whichever of you is NOT on WiFi WILL have to pay for their outbound and inbound da

That's not worse than option 1 he mentioned, it *is* option 1. He pays for his data (that he sends to her and receives from her) and she pays for her data (that she sends to him and receives from him). Exactly.

Re: Maybe a silly question (thread)

It is worse than any of the above. You both pay for all the data. So looking at for example (I am sure other providers count data in the same way):- https://www.o2.co.uk/business/support/billing/understanding-mobile-data It says:-

I'm pretty sure that is how it works. Caller and recipient are responsible each for his or her own data usage.
