Re: HITS MOBILE

My suggestion would be to look at how much you pay on average monthly on pay as you go and see if their is a monthly contract at a lower or similar price. If there is, it will avoid unnecessary shock when the bill arrives such as the one you had. ------------------ I agree. Hits for example do 100 ...

Re: HITS MOBILE

I must admit, I am a bit surprised that you didn't know you had the internet with your package. Surely when you choose the HITS package it specifies if you have the internet. I have had a HITS PAYG package and it certainly specified how much data and minutes I had. I have never had a "package&...

Re: HITS MOBILE

Hello Mark, "Smart phones won't work properly if they are not connected. In effect, apart from a couple of features they are not smart unless they are online. Basically very few people these days don't understand this and most understand the benefits of being connected when you are out and abou...

Re: HITS MOBILE

To a certain degree you are right. However I had absolutely no idea that they supplied the internet. I just thought they were a phone company. The reason being was that I had been with a company prior and all they supplied was phone calls. It could be different now of course because I moved to Telef...

Re: New CaixaBank fees ... time to change banks?

I think though as a Spanish resident and with a Spanish pension paid into my bank account I would have to use a Spanish bank as much as I would love to use Starling.

Re: New CaixaBank fees ... time to change banks?

That is very interesting thanks Steve. Thanks for that. Can I ask if those fees are because you are a not a resident!! They have started charging me 9 euros a month, not sure yet if any other fees except if I use the internet to pay a bill they charge me 5 euros!!

Re: HITS MOBILE

Its not data roaming that you need to check patrica. theres two data options. Mobile data and data roaming. You just need to turn off mobile data. Which you will see when you pull down from the top. Which ever phone you put your hits SIM in,if its a smartphone you need to make sure you turn mobile ...

Re: HITS MOBILE

No I am not in the UK now nor have I been for some time. However I have just spoken to them on the phone and they have said that it was not for data roaming but just for data which is why I was charged. Very very frustrating to say the least as I have checked the phone and for some reason the new ph...

Re: HITS MOBILE

Hello Mark, No I do not use my friends phone. I use their internet connection and take over my lap top. I have downloaded whatsapp and that is free. Is that something that I cannot use without Data Roaming then!! I have the internet which includes my fixed phone and all calls on my fixed phone to an...

Re: HITS MOBILE

Hi patricia, "If you go abroad and roam it doesn't cost you any more to use data due to E.U law."....Not strictly true.........Most UK Companies will have a "Fair use Policy".......... GiffGaff for example will allow only two months Roaming and then switch to eye watering rate.....

Re: HITS MOBILE

When I am in the UK I use my friends new work so I do not need it on my phone. I am not one of these who wants to be on the internet when I am out and about which is why I am so angry. It is a pity that you do not have to ask the phone company first or that they do not have the data roaming on until...

Re: HITS MOBILE

Hello Gerry, Yes I have that off thank you. What is the point anyway of data roaming!! If data is on then your phone will use some of your data allowance when you are here in Spain. If you have data roaming and data on and you are not in Spain, then it will use your data, but you will usually have ...

Re: HITS MOBILE

Thanks for that Gerry. I have done that now. I had no idea about data roaming at all!! I have read of course, in the past of people who took their phone abroad and had bills for 1000's of pounds. I had no idea that I would get caught out like that. What is the use of Date roaming for goodness sake!!...

Re: HITS MOBILE

I presume its not just a top up PAYG? A family member has top up PAYG with them so theres no bank account connected to the phone. I would change it over to that as possible to avoid any issues. Also having the wifi on has nothing to do with using data. You need to turn off your mobile data on your ...

HITS MOBILE

Just to quote Whicksy from her post about Endesy and her experience with Movistar. "On a positive note, hats off to Movistar whose PAYG SIM I had recently bought just as a spare second one in our UK phone. It had somehow switched onto data when the phone was turned on in the UK despite the fact...
