The biggest trick the world's mobile networks ever pulled was to persuade us that paying around 10p to send a text message was a good deal. You can imagine boardrooms reverberating to the sound of laughter as gargantuan sums were scrawled on whiteboards – trillions of SMS messages, minimal costs, billions in revenue. What's surprising is that we've taken so long to twig that the feat of delivering 160 bytes of data really isn't really worth that much reward.

Questions of cash: Securing a £100 refund on a replacement handbag was like going round and round the Mulberry bush
Saturday 24 November 2012
Q. My husband bought a bag for me on 5 January for my birthday from the Mulberry store in St Christopher's Place, London. It was not a sale item. At my request, he exchanged it on 20 January for a different colour. The replacement bag was £100 cheaper. The store told him he could not have a refund and instead issued a credit note. However, the store's website shows that its policy is that items returned in perfect condition within 28 days with proof of purchase will be refunded. I have tried repeatedly but unsuccessfully to contact Mulberry to resolve this. The transaction was some time ago but I only recently found out that the store did not provide a refund. FW, by email.
