Text message scams that specifically target seniors - Text Blocked

Text message scams that specifically target seniors

Text message scams that specifically target seniors In recent months there have been several scam texts messages that specifically target seniors, often spoofing numbers from banks and even the NHS to make themselves appear more genuine.

The criminals are preying on seniors' worries about their financial information being compromised, and money stolen. However, ironically, by sending out this kind of message, this is exactly what the fraudsters hope to accomplish.

To help safeguard our customers, and in response to customers' request, we no longer support inbound or outbound text messages on any or our SIM call plans.


 NO long term contracts - Just 30 days rolling, with 30 days notice

No Long Term mobile contracts - 30 days

We believe the quality of our Simple Basic mobile phone service for the elderly should be a simple a possible, and as such, we don't tie you into any long-term contracts.

Our Simple mobile telephone service is provided on a monthly rolling contract and can be cancelled with just 30* days' notice. There are NO termination or disconnection fees.

Transparent billing and easy payment

We charge in advance. This means you will have covered your 30-day notice period for cancellation, allowing us to terminate your line for you the same day you notify us should it become necessary. We operate all accounts with direct debit through GoCardless meaning that you don't have to worry about making payments and are kept informed before any money ever leaves your account.

How your first bill is calculated

The invoice will show a charge for the whole month in which the invoice is issued and for the whole of the following calendar month. (2 whole months.) This advance payment means you'll have covered your 30 day notice period for cancellation, allowing us to terminate your line for you the same day you notify us should it become necessary.

If you have signed up to our service part way through a month, your first bill will also include a charge from the date the new service went live to the end of the part month.

Please remember to tell the bill payer that the name of our Direct Debit will show on their bank statement as “GoCardless”.


Mobile Spend Monthly Bill Cap

Monthly bill Cap to safeguard our customers

To safeguard our customers, we offer a monthly bill cap that can be set by you and placed on the account. The Bill Cap is an extra amount you are happy to spend outside the service plan.

This means the bill will not exceed this cap per month. The cap would only be used/charged for any calls or data may outside what is included in the call plan, like calls to 118, 087 numbers, or if you runout of data. If no calls or data made or used, outside what is included in the plan, the bill cap amount would never be triggered. If you do over run and you hit the Bill Cap the service will closed until the following month. Bill Caps can be change, but only at the start of a new billing period. And cannot be lifted mid-month.
