At times when a member tries to access the phone/email of another member, he can get a message which asks him to "View Phone/Email tomorrow - Contact limits reached of recipient" or any message which means the same. In these cases the member just needs to visit the same profile again the next days and use his quota of "View Contacts"

48. Paid members can see Phone/Email of other members subject to the total limits on "Direct Contacts" as specified on the membership page for the pack they have purchased. Additionally the maximum daily limit is 25 Contact Views per day. Ability to see contact details of another member is also dependent on whether you pass the filter criteria of the other member and the other member has not declined your profile or deleted his/her own profile. When you view contact details of any other member you would be able to see any 1 of the following Email, Mobile Number, Landline number. This is deemed as a Contact View and a count is deducted from your "Direct Contacts" quota. The website does not guarantee that you will be able to speak/correspond with the profile on the provided Mobile, Landline or Email ID.
