From Virgin Mobile Australia:
Dialling under the influence: Yep you do!
You spoke we listened, check out the results:
Thanks so much for taking part in our little survey about Dialling Under the Influence, we thought you might be interested in the results:
- 95% of you Dial Under the Influence – that’s a heck of a lot!
- Of these calls, a whopping 30% of you make calls to your exes, 19% to current partners and 36% to anyone and everyone.
- We also found that 54% of you make 1 to 3 calls a night, 35% dial under the influence more than once a week and 37% more than once a month! Now that’s enough to cause some real damage!
- And finally we found that 55% of you would reach for your phone to check who you dialled last night compared to 8% who would rather kill that hangover with a Panadol!
So what was all this in aid of? Well we’ve just launched a new service called Dialling Under the Influence. From today simply dial 333 plus the phone number you don’t want to call when drunk (e.g. 333 0431 123 456). Virgin Mobile will then stop all calls to that number (e.g. 0431 123 456) by blacklisting it until 6am the following morning. Please make sure you enter the number as it appears in your contacts book!
And at 25c a pop it’s a small cost for peace of mind! To undo the action in an emergency all you need to do is simply dial 333CLEAR (33325327)
Thanks for taking part! And remember don’t Dial Under the Influence!
