What is a Genie sim. Is it free texts or something???
Genie sims at the time were legendary at my school. I'm sure it started out as unlimited texts, unlimited wap, but this was quickly changed to 300 texts, 300 mins of wap.
Genie was the online part of BT Cellnet, sims cost I think ?9.99 but this varied. Now, this might not sound very special, but at the time it was awesome.
Genie Internet was bought and rebranded as o2 online, at the same time as o2. The Genie sims are now o2 online PAYG sims, and are pretty much the same - but with cheaper calls.
Not so special now (though still a great PAYG deal), but at the time.... awesome
