Does Vodafone Text Unlimited have a fair use policy?

Someone told me there’s an actual limit! Surely that’s not unlimited then?!

I believe it's around 3000 texts, when they'll start taking notice.

EDIT: Here's Voda's blurb:
"This offer is subject at all times to a fair usage policy each month of 3000 text messages. Usage above this will be automatically charged at your price plan rate. We will notify you by text message when you reach this limit. We may withdraw the reward from your account or disconnect your SIM card if the fair usage policy is consistently reached, if daily usage is deemed to be excessive, or if we suspect the offer is being exploited for commercial benefit."

So above 3000 texts, will mean 12p per subsequent text.

ALL offers on ALL network have open and not so open fair usage limits.

@JanSt

Indeed. Three is the only one I know of that lets you send 5000 texts a month. Although if you're sending more than that per month you have to wonder how much time that person spends not on their phone :p

What about O2, what is the limit there?

@CTPAHHIK

A quick Google doesn't bring up much. Some saying 6000, some saying 12000 (which would be insane if you could send that many per month X)). Either way, I'm sure O2 would give a warning beforehand.
