Important information for Pay as you go customers
We’ve become aware of an issue affecting a very small number of Pay as you go customers since December 2013. If a Pay as you go phone isn’t used for 270 consecutive days it is disconnected. Top-ups to a small number of phones which were awaiting disconnection failed. This meant that if you had not used your phone for 270 consecutive days and tried to top up through an ATM, by swipecard or Direct Debit your attempt to top up would have been unsuccessful. If you believe you’ve been affected, please contact us on our eForum or call us on 033 33 040 591 (standard call charges apply). We’re really sorry for any inconvenience.
