Money, money, money

Might explain why I got a sales call off them a fortnight ago, when only 3 months into my SIM-only contract:

Do I want to upgrade my wife's PAYG tariff to a contract? No, and that's her decision anyway.

Do I have a tablet? Yes

What tablet is it? A PlayBook

Is it 3G? No

Would I like a 3G tablet? No, I'm saving for a Surface Pro

Would you like Vodafone's SmartTablet, that's Windows 8 you know? No it's not, it's Android

Do I have a laptop? Yes thanks, it's only 12 months old

Do you take it outside of the house? Yes, when I go on holiday

Would I like a Vodafone 3G dongle for mobile broadband? No thanks, I'll stick with free wifi hotspots

Would you like an additional phone for only £8/month? No thanks, I don't need one.

Do you have any children? Would they like a phone? No, they're 7 and 2!!!!!

OK, is there anything else you'd like to buy from us? No. NO NO NO NO NO.

I cancelled with them last month and had to give a months notice, curious then that 6 weeks later that line is still connected, I wonder how much I'll be charged for that.

And they didn't spot it was a wind up at that point? You are so cruel!

Let me guess you asked for a PAC in the hope that threatening to leave would result in them offering a better deal. You then didnt bother using the code leaving the line active.

Certainly not on the side of the networks but the amount of people who do this then complain their line is still active is unreal.

Check for spontaneous itemised billing on data tariffs that don't exist. I can't be the only one.

Having pee'd money up the wall buying a PlayBook I now don't use and don't want, I'm trying to stick true-to-form ;-)
