    I'm on Sky mobile and I'm trying to set up my banking app (so I can check my balance whilst driving to work, obvs), but when the bank sends my activation code, nothing arrives. I contacted the bank and they said I just had to speak to sky and get them to enable alpha tags or something.
    So I contacted sky and their reply was "Sorry our mobile network currently doesn't support short codes we are working to resolve this:)"

    With a smiley. A fucking smiley???
    So I can't use my banking app and consequently can't use Apple Pay because they didn't bother to sort this out before going live, despite the other carriers using the O2 network managing it quite happily.

    Sky bastards.

    Phone again tomorrow and speak to someone else, you'll probably get a completely different answer mate
