    Cancelling uk mobile contract

    Hi, just wondered if anyone has managed to cancel their uk mobile contract without having to pay the full outstanding contract? If so how did you manage it? I've had a quick check around the net and the general consensus is that you just have to pay it up.

    Quantas Cancelling 100 Flights per week

    QANTAS baggage handlers and ground crew have begun their latest round of industrial action, causing delays and cancellations for passengers across the country. Qantas cancelled at least 14 domestic flights this morning and rescheduled around another 30 because of the action. Passengers travelling on international flights at Melbourne airport were being warned to arrive early today as Customs officers go on strike for eight hours. Customs officers will be off the job until 11am, followed by another four-hour stoppage from 9pm. The move will add significant delays to the processing of passengers travelling on international flights both in and out of the airport. Melbourne airport spokesman Matt Francis said last night that passengers should expect delays getting through Customs today. "This will affect arriving and departing passengers on what is one of the busiest days of the week for international travel," he said. "We are strongly encouraging international travellers tomorrow to follow the advice from Customs, which is to arrive at the airport early, and go straight to Customs." It comes after talks on a new pay deal for Customs officers broke down yesterday and follows a three-hour strike last month. Qantas baggage handlers and ground crew from the Transport Workers Union also began their strike today at 7am. It will last for two hours before second strike at 4pm in a further headache for business people and holiday-makers. The TWU action will still affect more than 6800 passengers across the country, with 14 flights cancelled and another 38 delayed by up to an hour. Qantas also faces industrial action from aircraft engineers, who will stop work for four hours in Sydney tomorrow, and from the pilots union.

  5. Hi Everyone, When it comes time to wind everything up in the UK, and you close your accounts with utility companies etc – (In my case, phone companies….) confirm when the last payment will be taken from your account by the phone company. After the final payment has been taken from your account, CANCEL your direct debit. If you use online banking, do not simply cancel the DD on there – phone your bank and do it. And make sure that they cancel ALL DDs to that particular company. A particular phone company has a reputation for setting up not one, not two, but THREE direct debits when you sign up with them. When you simply cancel your DD online, they will just take more money against one of the other 2 remaining DDs.:jimlad: We did contact the phone company (on about 4 occasions now) and they could not explain how they were able to take the money, and, as we had cancellation references, they were full of promises to refund us the money. (This started in February, and we’re still waiting!!) I had to contact our bank in the UK to find out what was going on, and how they were able to continue to take money out of our account. The lady at the bank explained the business of the 3 DD’s on our account. She also said that there were other companies who worked the same way – she named some well known gyms and internet providers. The bank was very good and refunded us the money as they could see we had cancelled the DD twice already, however it is a real pain in the backside when you need to resolve issues like this from half way around the world!! Save yourself the headache!!:idea: Cheers Jules

    Cancelling your TV licence

    Don't forget if you pay by direct debit you pay 6 months in advance and 6 months in arrears. Time it right and you can just cancel your direct debit and ring them to cancel the licence, thus avoiding the palaver of filling out a form and sending them a copy of your flight ticket so that they may (and I quote) "consider" giving you a refund for the unused portion of the licence. I certainly won't be missing the TV licensing hoons.

    Cancelling UK mobile contracts.

    Has anybody been in the situation of having taken out a mobile phone on contract and the deciding to immigrate to Oz. Well I did. I tried to cancel the contract with O2 and was told that it would cost me £450. Thinking of doing a runner........ Anybody had that experience?
