Is this a record...?

Just logged into my Vodaphone mobile broadband account which I hadn't done so for some considerable time.
I bought the dongle in December 2009 with £15 on it. I topped it up once with another £15 over 4 years ago and it still showing as active with £14.14 available.

Re: Is this a record...?

maybe a record that its still active, I had an O2 dongle about 5 years ago through BT (they gave it as a freebie for not showing up to connect my phone and broadband for 30 days, even though it didn't arrive until the day after the engineer did...)  however despite having more than 20 quid of credit in the account they disabled the device after I didn't use it for 90 days...... ended up getting the account closed and them sending me a cheque for the balance after a few months of hasstle with the not quite customer service centre located somewhere on the Indian continent .....
never had an account remain active more than 12 months though if it wasn't used
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
