Fair enough, they took your details, couldn't send you the stick, but you can get it yourself (for free) and a better one at that (4Gb instead of 2Gb). What is the scam in that?
    Yes, totally free. A £100 train fare for me to get to BETT... It IS a scam. They haven't fulfilled their side of the deal - namely, sending a memory stick like promised in return for our details. If you went into a shop and they said 'give us £100 and we'll send you a blu ray player' and they didn't send the blu-ray player, instead saying 'come in and collect it', that would not be acceptable would it?

    but you can get your £100 back and move on i.e. unsubscribe from the "spam", and you're no worse off. it's a pain; true. it's not as advertised; true. it's not the end of the world. if you want a truly free memory stick, follow @rayfleming and wait until he's getting rid of a load, and he'll post you one. he's a man of his word.

    They've got a nerve!!

    Our staff registered over 2 years ago and not one person has received their Free USB Stick! I've phoned them up on numerous occassions and been told that due to popular demand they were out of stock, we would be next on the list to be dispatched, then there was a problem with something on the stick, then out of stock again!!

    It's a Joke! - The best of it is I get regualr e-mails from them now saying "We hope your enjoying your free USB Stick" etc etc!

    So Mr Director of Memory 4 Teachers, if you are reading this, then please can you send us 80 x USB Memory sticks for all our staff!!! PM me and I will send you our school address to ship to, many thanks ;-)

    Maybe Watchdog or someone will want to feature them?
    Hello Readers

    >> Still waiting for mine, still receiving their marketing emails.
    Woww/ Gosh, where is the registration for that service?

    >> Out of interest, does anyone know anyone who HAS received their memory stick?
    Yes I received one about a year ago! .. .. .. But .. .. .. Always a But

    Every time I plug it into my PC and try to Log-In, I'm told "I'm not Registered" ~ or words to that effect.

    Over the weeks & months I guess I've registered coming up on twenty separate occasions .. .. .. ..

    As I've registered using the same User ID & Password each time ~ and each time I'm told I've registered satisfactorily .. .. .. and then when I attempt to Log-In, I am being told that my Log-In is invalid, I can only think their left hand is not talking to their right hand.

    Another thing (me thinks) is "If I've Registered satisfactorily each time, then how come their system is quite content to accept the same User ID time after time?"

    Okay ~ so I'm not an IT Geek, but something's not quite right.

    Sorry I forgot to wave as I flew over...

    Maybe some day soon I might receive something from these guys... other than their email asking how I am getting on with my (fictitious) memory stick of course...

    Our package contained about 20 memory sticks, labeled with the staff that had ordered them.The teachers have said the software isn't that good and have formatted them

    I hope the size has been increased commensurate with the time you've had to wait. There'd be no point sending out a 512MB memory stick which was all the rage 2 years ago!
