    Just to say that the codes work with iTunes Plus songs and that I have had two codes sent to me.

    Happy days! :)

    P.S. Why have Apple kept this offer so quiet?

    But how much does it cost for the texts?
    I'm guessing they won't use "free" texts.

    My brother used one of his free texts with Orange and it worked fine.

    It's cost me 12p per text, though.

    It normally costs 50p + network rates to text the 85100 number

    I've just checked my balance and the text definitely cost me 12p.

    I guess it depends on your provider?

    As I understand it it's just your standard rate. So for people with inclusive text messages it really should be free.

    This didn't turn out to be quite right. Even though I have inclusive text messaging I was charged 10p. Still, not bad for a song.

    This is what my bill shows:

    Fri 28 Sep 14:45 Premium Text Msg 1 text msg £0.10

    Yeah... your arrangement is for inclusive texts to UK mobile ("07" prefix) numbers, no doubt. Not these competition / private sms short numbers.

    Worse still, I got charged for this and never even received a code. How do I go about suing for 12p? :D

    Move to the US, sue for 12p damages and $12million pain and suffering and loss of conjugal benefits. (you can say the song was a gift you promised your SO and when it didn't come, well.... )
