the find your feet data doesnt work. it says on my account I have it when I ring 2345. its still taking credit. it says via text msgs I have all my data and is now taken £1 for each 25mb I use. yet when calling 2345, it still says I have free data remaining with find your feet data... I paid £20 fir the freedom freebie and topped up an extra £5 incase I used all my mins. so much for find your feet data, looks like the rug was pulled from under the feet......

I had a similar problem but resolved it by calling the customer service helpline number and getting credit put on that way. Kevin you really do need to learn to spell my dear!

I have been trying all morning to take advantage of the offer to call 4354 to renew my Freedom Freebie automatically every 30 days, and have £4 free credit. Each time the response was the automated voice saying thankyou for my call. Goodbye. I gave up on that and then tried to renew my Freedom Freebie as per usual with my registered credit card. The automated message just went round and round giving me the same information about the choices I had, and going no further. What is happening?
