Orange charge 1p for delivery reports... They always have done, when I got my first bill and realised I had gone over quite a lot I called customer care and asked them what's going on... They told me to turn off delivery reports as they cost 1p each! It's pretty annoying

I was charged on Orange and T-Mobile, I think Three as well back two years ago when I first had a three account. I just turned them off so I don't get charged, I wasn't charged on o2 though.

Its these small things that leave a bad taste in customers mouths, and they shall not be forgotten, when greedy companies do stuff like this, the customers will just remember the next time they are going for a new phone or a new contract, and maybe chose a competitor instead of their current provider.
I remember when even text messages used to be FREE, ah the good old days.
