Richard, thank you it is 1% charged. My dad will be very grateful as he is house bound.
I'm not sure if I pressed the wrong button but can I have this as a one off payment and not the start of a a monthly contract please? If we need you again we will certainly be back.
Thanks again.

Can you please confirm this was a one off payment for £26 and I haven't asked for a monthly contract?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
I have sent this to customer service Val (I cannot see this as I am only an engineer) but they will ensure there is no monthly contract if you accidentally signed up for it

Thank you
