I'm just looking at all the angles. I've recently been bombard with spam emails urging me to opt out and something doesn't feel right about it.

It seems that way to me, we have three mobile phones but I took a decision not to opt out. I'll be watching what happens with interest.

In many ways, I needn't have bothered as I think few people would try to find me, even fewer after they'd paid but I'd refused the connection a few times.  :evil:

Mmmm, I've just thought of a great scam. Start up a controversial service, get everyone to opt out and then scarper with a lot of hard to get personal details  :out:

As a matter of interest were there any costs involved in opting out such as mobile phone charges?

I know I'm being completely cynical but the smell of fish is overwhelming from where I'm sitting  :o

I'm just being a cynic Gary. It does though look as if all the bad publicity might have killed the service at birth which is probably not a bad thing for consumers.

I tried to opt out on a number of occasions, but never received the 5 digit confirmation code on any of them, so I will be interested to see, if the site is ever up and running again, whether I'm in or out.

I didn't get the code, but I kept a copy of my text, so if I'm in, I shall be asking them to explain. :)
