    Has anyone else had the frustration of their mobile network providers content control? I've been on to my provider online on my account for ages trying to lift it, and had to pay £1 for each attempt. Now having got fed up, phoned them up this afternnon explaining this, they tell me they've had technical troubles with lifting the content bars online, and all they did was click a button and hey presto I can now access LH on the move. I've been so frustrated trying to get into the forums and complete orders and such like, I couldn't even manage to make it as far as the home page! Seriously, I'm moving back to my previlous provider once my contracts up, shouldv'e stayed with them in the first place, I wouldn't have had this trouble that's for sure!

    I've never had a problem on 02. My bf is on 3 and it blocked lh once (for no apparent reason) but it's been fine the rest of the time. Can't believe it cost you so much! You should complain!

    im on orange and have this problem. it wont even let me watch the simpsons on my mobile.

    i can understand the need for the blocks for small childeren and stuff but it is a bit hypocritcal when the service provider offers "mature content" ans "sexy 18+" stuff on their mobile download shops.

    i know all i have to do is ring them but it is so expensive its not particuarly worth it.

    if you have a shop near you pop in and ask to use there customer service phone every store was having one fitted as i was leaving so they will have one that will cost you nothing and youll also have the advantage of having an assistant to argue for you if the customer service line arnt listening.

    i know exactly what you mean thought when ever i try to come on here on my phone it gets blocked yet i go on their home page and im faced with a woman in her pants with a banner over her boobs. xxx

    The future's bright....

    I feel a bit cheated that Orange are so blatantly shit these days as it's rare I find an advertising slogan that I like. Not that this is a reason to stay with a provider. No coverage all week at Center Parcs.

    I don't use internet on a phone.

    There's an Orange advert running along the lines of 'your girlfriend will never appreciate Zombikini 2'

    Right... One thing that abso-fucking-lutely annonys me:

    " Unlimited broadband/mobile internet* "

    * Subject to fair usage policy.

    Am I missing something here?

    yeah it doesn't make sense does it? I have unlimited txts, but in the small print it says subject to fair usage-3000 txts!
