For Lego lovers ! - Start Tomorrow !

Don't forget to start collect your Lego tomorrow ! You might not need it but your son/daughter/niece/nephew would! :)

Hello there,

Starting next Saturday, Daily Mirror and Sunday Mirror will print out a token for you to collect a small lego figurine( worth £1.69 - £1.99 each) for free. You can get it daily from designated shop or send your token by post to get the whole collction. The last time when you can collect it from WH Smith, the cashier will give the Lego toy to you when you buy the newspaper without handing them the token. What I did was when I got out, cut the token and went back to WH Smith to get another toy. So for 45p you get two toys. But when you can only get the toys from Tesco, they do need you to give them the token. Lets hope this time its from WHSmith again.:) If you don't want to commute daily to any of this shop, you can collect the token and send it by post to them. Usually you don't have to collect all the token to get the full set. But the postage will be £5.95. Hope this help !

In this post I would like to introduce you to Rebtel .As an oversea student, once in a while we need to call our friends and family back home. If you already have BT International Freedom, you can call them for free or on cheap discounted rate. But if you are outside and need to make that call from your mobile, Rebtel is the cheap way to do it.
With Rebtel, you don't need to install any software to your mobile. All you have to do is register the overseas mobile number that you want to call at Rebtel website and the system will generate a local landline number for you. Save this local landline number to your mobile and everytime you want to call your friend/family, just dial that number. When you first register with them, the first call you make with Rebtel will be free but up to 5 minutes only. After that you need to top up your credit before you can make your next call. So register now to try their system for free ! You don't have to top up if you don't like it..
And if you want your friend/family to pay for the call, just call your friend/family Rebtel number and asked them to call back the local number shown on their mobile. This way, you don't have to pay anything because the bill is paid by your friend/family. As the number they are calling is a local number, they only need to pay the local rate. Hope this help !

FishText - Cheap SMS/Text to Overseas Mobile

Hello Again,

The cost of texting overseas mobile is around 20p from your mobile. Texting oversea is not included in your mobile bundle and you have to pay everytime you send your text. But if your mobile can download software from the internet, you can use FishText to send your SMS to overseas mobile. Its way much cheaper compare to texting directly from your mobile. For example, to send a text to Malaysia will cost around 20p through Vodafone but using FishText, it only cost 1.3p. The good thing about FishText is your overseas contact will receive your text as if it is from your mobile and they can reply to it as normal. All reply will go to your mobile inbox as normal too. The only thing that is not very good about FishText is it need internet connection to send your text, so if you don't have free internet bundle for your phone, you will need to pay extra for your internet. But if you are sending a lot of text oversea, it will still can save you money, because for example Vodafone charge you 50p per day for internet use, if you send text oversea without FishText, three text will cost you 60p, but with FishText, if you send 3 text to Malaysia, it will cost you 53.9p. You will save a lot more if you send a lot of text. One way for you to avoid paying for mobile internet is by sending text from your computer. FishText have an online software from where you can send your text and your contact will see your text as if it is send from your mobile.
Free sim generic
Another way is to get your free sim from 3 and for every £10 top-up, you will get free internet for up to 90 days. When you register for FishText, they will credit your account with 20p for you to test it first. When you have use your 20p, you need to top up your account for you to be able to send more text. Minimum top up is £5. Hope this help.

But of course a lot of us as a student, 12pm is still very early .. :)
