O2 blocking harmless sites
So I am a long-term O2 customer. Today I click on an email link in my smartphone email to take me to a completely harmless, bog-standard dating service and up pops the Age-Verification rubbish. So I reluctantly hand over my details to this company I've never heard of and get an SMS letting me know I've been verified.
Now that's wonderful - except it still won't connect. I am re-directed to O2's woeful wap.o2.co.uk page when I click the link. So the age verification process still doesn't stop O2 re-writing your links and actually appears to not work.
Good job O2 - this is why people wish mobile operators become dumb pipes.
