"....times three, 'cos T-Mobile knows what it's doing..."

Gosh, I hope they don't have to prove in court that T-Mobile knows what it's doing in order to get the 3x multiplier.

This is the company...

..who by default sets their censorware to "North Korea" until you turn it off. Don't you need to be 18 in order to enter a contract to get a 3G dongle?

I'm on a borrowed dongle right now, and can't even look at the UK National Lottery without getting a "fuck off, we think you're a child." And yet, I can be corrupted by elReg and numerous other less work-friendly sites with ease!

God I'm glad I didn't buy this... and never will.

SPAM

T-Mobile is blocking spam.

This isn't about weed. It's about 1 or many spam ads being served by an SMS spam company.
