rpolly - 18-11-2008 @ 02:59 AM

they mention Premium SMS costs in the t&c's, but there is no SMS number listed to enter with.
I'm having troubles with the site at the moment, not recognising the security codes I enter :(
EDIT: working now. :)

pablo_honey - 13-12-2008 @ 10:50 PM

When it states: only one entry permitted per specified purchase requirement; does this mean if you buy 2 on the same docket you can only enter the once? I purchased 2 so I could enter the other mango comp as well.

Sorry if I sound a bit thick :D

clover - 13-12-2008 @ 11:22 PM
