@DaveyH 

Pity the article does not say that and its not until you look at the FAQs link that it's mentioned.

Bad knee jerk news reporting from the Mail Online? It certainly seems like it.

Re: Not so fast mobile !

Well the fact it involves Sprint and Boost is a massive clue...

 

That's what you get for reading  Daily Fail Online.

Well yes, but only if you had heard of them previously or knew who they were. They could just as easily been new kids on the block unless you knew otherwise and as you obviously did.

The Mail and the Mail Online seems to have a record of being unreliable and also in the habit of digging up old news and presenting it as something new. Private Eye for example often take them to task for such things.

Re: Not so fast mobile !

How about this then...

Seen in Tesco's this morning - Easter eggs for sale and no, not those tiny Cadbury ones but full blown proper Easter eggs.

Remind me again how many shopping days until Christmas.

Bonkers.

Fair point @shutter and just as daft but there again those hot cross buns are nice to have at anytime of the year, but Easter eggs, really?

Personally I think mobile phone companies have got a lot to answer for. 🤣

Re: Not so fast mobile !

Your point?!

 

 

This thread was about mobile providers, what's that got to do with [-Censored-]ing Easter Eggs!?!

 

And he isn't usually shy about starting inane threads...

@DaveyH 

Well given that your input correct as it seemed put a stop to the thread ergo it became pointless. The space was going unused and vacant and rather than start off a new topic about Easter eggs, why not just recycle an unused one?

Anyways...

Lighten up eh, life is too short.
