This month my 18-month phone contract with O2 came to an end, so deciding to keep my existing handset (the O2 Xda Orbit) I chose a cheaper tariff, enabling me to save a massive £15.00 per month.
But I still get more text messages and phone call minutes bundled with my tariff (Online simplicity 25 with Unlimited Web Bolt On) than I know what to do with.
Let’s start with text messages. I get 1,000 per month.
Ten times ten times ten.
Or if you’re Roman: M.
When do I have the time to send 1,000 text messages every month?!
Let’s say there’s an average of 30 days per month, and I’m awake for 16 hours per day. That means that I need to send around 33 texts per day, at just over 2 per hour every hour to take best advantage of that offer.
And that’s not even taking into account the 620 minutes that I need to use making telephone calls.
Six-hundred and twenty minutes of voice calls I get bundled in with my calling package.
That’s over 10 hours!
When am I going to have the time to speak to folks on the phone for over ten hours a month, don’t they know I’m spending most of that time composing texts?!
Last month I used:
- 104 minutes of calls
- 11 text messages
- 19 KB of data (on an unlimited data package)
