Thanks O2, but I'll live without your spammy travel insurance

29 September 2010

Texts from mobile carriers to remind you of roaming data costs are one thing, but this sort of thing is spam, plain and simple. Avid Bitterwallet reader Tony is currently in Spain, where he received this text from O2. Who knew that mobile service providers were also professional insurance brokers too?

    Don't be an idiot. Reselling on behalf of someone else packaged as their own in return for commission. Otherwise why the hell would a phone company get involved?

    Perhaps they mean phone insurance?...Or is that being a bit stupid...

    I cant believe I wasted 30 secons of my life reading this! Utter pap. So you got a text advertising O2 insurance abroad. Ignore it. You likely have wrong privacy settings with them. Yawn

    Just reply the word STOP when you get home and it will stop. But the fact you can call a number for free from abroad from your phone and get insured aint exactly the worse thing they have ever done!

    innit. If you're angry about getting marketing texts, either opt out after the first one, or if this IS the first one, get some anger counselling so you don't shit your load the second some spam drops in your lap. Bitterwallet - HERE 2 HALP
