Samsung E1190 Black Mobile Phone on O2 Pay As You &hellip by Samsung
3.0 out of 5 stars Free airtime problem, 22 July 2014
Be aware that the 10 free airtime is incorporated in the Simcard provided. This means that if you want to transfer the Simcard from your old phone (to retain your phone number and contacts) you will not gain the benefit of the free airtime. After buying the phone, and discovering this problem, I raised the matter with the supplier (TTSIMS) , but they were unsympathetic. As a result, although I like the phone, I can only award 3 stars.

In addition, of the 10 Gecko species (3 introduced), only 2 are illustrated.

I suppose they were included because they followed so closely after the Zulu war. Having made this decision, why are they treated differently, in that no maps are provided? My major gripe is that it is stated on the dustwrapper (and duplicated on the Amazon description) that the death of… Read more
