No, O2 has always charged to use voicemail, however it is a single charge per use rather than per minute

That's strange. My sister is on O2 and she has free voicemail.

Is it possible that on the mobiles.co.uk tariff, voicemail is charged as a call in minutes and hence forms part of your allowance. Outside of your allowance, it is charged per access.

At least, that's my interpretation of it.

Reading the terms and conditions of mobiles.co.uk I found:
""Airtime Contract" means a contract entered into between you and your Network Operator relating to the provision of the Services;" probably they don't have control over any "Bolts on" given from O2. I hope so.

some people on the avforums got their xperia's from mobiles.co.uk and apparently it flags as a special contract on O2's systems that they can't change. One guy got O2 customer service to change his tariff so he had the unlimited web bolt on instead of unlimited texts but others have not been so lucky even after speaking to supervisors.

Just a heads up that it could well end up being £42.50 a month. However with the 40 quid from quidco and 5 months 1/2 price line rental it still works out cheaper than the tmobile deal from expansys. An average of £35.12 vs £40.61 a month over the 18 month contract as I calculate it.

I'm on O2 PAYG at the moment and I have to pay for voicemail, but it's a once-per-occasion charge. I do, however, go for the "free voicemail" O2 treat when offered it. The existence of such an O2 treat is an added indicator.

It might be, however, that it's another case of the Telco screwing over those on PAYG compared to contract, so contract may be free to access...

As SingaporeAirlines says, it could well come as part of inclusive minutes...

Oh I'm going to raise hell if they try and tell me that I can't change it despite the O2 terms and conditions clearly stating that I can!

on O2 600
5 months 1/2 price: the total cost will be 35.00*16.5=577,5
1.99 for 2 months: the total cost will be 35.00*16+1.99*2=564

am I right or not?
sorry for maybe stupid question...

No its £542.50.

5months x £17.50 = 87.50
13months x £35 = £455
Total = £542.50

Cheaper than 2 months x £1.99

Because that would mean shelling out a load of cash toget hold of the HD. Doing it this way I can still keep paying the same amount of money per month and get the phone for free.

T-Mobile have annoyed me about their speed of bringing handsets out as well. First the Vario III (Kaiser) came out while I was still tied in with my 18 months with my Vario II which I could live with but then the delay over the Touch Pro (which I would have upgraded to months ago now) and their attitude to its release (more details here - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...412467&page=24) basically summarised by T-Mobile want people to buy the G1 and they've still got loads of stock of the Vario III they want to shift before they bring out the Vario IV despite that phone now being outdated.

How long is everybody having to wait to speak to the sales department at mobiles.co.uk? I've been on hold for 4 minutes and counting...

And this is both the sales *and* customer service number.

Edit: 8 minutes and counting...

Edit: Screw them - I gave up waiting on hold for sales, and so I tried customer services. (Option 7) Every time I tried that option I got cut off instantly. Either their phone system is screwed (and has been since last week when I first tried calling them) or their customer service is completely ineffective. I'm not impressed.
