Fi God sake, Digicel, leave mi alone

Published:Saturday | February 28, 2015 | 12:00 AM

Due to how Digicel tek set pon mi, yuh woulda think mi nyam sumthing fi dem.

There is nothing more irritating than sleeping and being woken up by Digicel. I am not a doctor, nor do I drive, so I don't expect my phone to go off at 3 or 6 in the mornings.

Digicel, I don't care about your promotions or anything else you have to offer. Just stop sending me text messages. When I bought my SIM card, I bought it so that I could be in contact with friends and family. "Mi neva buy it fi unuh pest mi!"

Sometimes in the day you are expecting an important text, when you hear the phone go off. Then yuh a jump like hurdler or a kick like yuh inna Hidden Dragon only to realise a crosses Digicel a badda yuh.

I tried resolving this by

calling customer care, and I was told that my number has to be registered.

All I want are the messages to stop, but I guess that won't happen because I was told my number isn't registered, and the only way for that to happen is to remember the year or the month the SIM card was purchased. I was just 13 years old when I bought it. How the hell would I know at the time that it would be relevant years later?

Unhappy customer
