    Thanks to a SMS Text News story, Vodafone has discovered that it was overcharging it's pay-as-you-go customers. Vodafone's text messaging system works by charging £1.50 for the service, and then 12p a text message. A recent glitch in the server was causing pay-as-you-go customers to pay an extra 12p. Vodafone has discovered this flaw, fixed it, and is in the middle of refunding it's customers. Vodafone estimates it will be done in about a week.

    £19 a month on O2 for 75 minutes and 300 texts, 12p a text would cost me about that for just 160 texts at 12 each, so even a cheap contract is much better value. Plus I got a free phone.
