    I am interested in using this service. I am just not sure about all its details. If you opt in are u charged 1.50 a day even if u only use like 4 Mb a day. Or do they take a percentage of the 1.50 depending on how much you use?

    I opted in and was charged £120. I was in Belgium for a day and only checked maps and emails a coupl of times. Currently disputing. In their online chat help dept. they said they would investigate as they could not see the bolt on. However I can see clearly when I log in and also have the text telling me not to worry I won’t get charged more than £1.50 a day.

    It does look now like my bill has been resolved. No word from O2. Just gone altogether from my bill. Either they corrected it or I jumped the gun my checking my data use on return. They do say it can ale 12 hours to update. However they did manage to show what they thought I should owe them quick enough. Anyway seems like a happy resolution.
