T-Mobile UK users beware - Twitter SMS is chargeable!

8 posts in this topic

Just checked out my November and December bills on T-Mobile UK, and i've been charged 17p+VAT for the Twitter SMS, which it has deemed 'International', despite being a +44 number :)

I've contacted T-Mo for clarification...

Got a refund for the charges, but 'now I know' that it is a Channel Islands number (or something) I will be charged in future.

Rubbish :)

Hey Paul - you can check what network a text-in number is on by going here - this site tells you whether it's a uk or other number -if it is eg a manx number, you're likely to be charged more for it.

If you want a number that will work on t-mobile, try going to aql - > they do free twitter numbers but you should always check your online bill to make sure you're not being fleeced for texting to a service :)

I find Twidroid or Seesmic the best and have heard good things about Swift

I used to use Twidroid, but prefer Seesmic much better now :)

Have you guys heard of Xeeku. It's the best Twitter client I've seen for Android.

I was on Twidroid and Seesmic - but XeekuTweets is the best yet.
