Felixstowe: Four-month-old baby sent O2 sim cards in post
FELIXSTOWE: At just four months old, baby Ryan has not yet learnt to talk – let alone use the phone.
But the tiny tot has already received his first piece of post – a letter containing two mobile phone sim cards!
Mum Christina Scott said the post had arrived through their letterbox at the family home in Grange Farm, Felixstowe on Monday as usual.
But the 31-year-old was taken aback when, among the usual junk mail and bills, she found a letter addressed to her youngest son.
“I was so shocked to see a letter for him,” the mum-of-two said.
“I was intrigued, I couldn’t think what he could be sent – it is the first letter he has ever received.”
Inside the package from phone network O2 were two sim cards and two top-up cards.

Mrs Scott added: “I couldn’t believe it. Why would they send it to a baby?
“We found it quite funny, he can’t even talk let alone hold a mobile phone for a chat.
“You just don’t expect that kind of thing to be addressed to a four-month-old.
“My eldest Corey is eight and he only gets post from Ipswich Town – and even he doesn’t have a mobile.
“I have never heard of anything like this happening before.”
And the part-time cleaner was quick to add she and her husband Peter will not be activating Ryan’s sim cards.
“He will have to wait until he is a bit older before he gets his hands on a mobile,” Mrs Scott said.
O2 were unavailable for comment today.
