On Refresh if buy the phone then don't you have to take the airtime?(I've heard about cancelling the airtime, but people warned can be complications with that)

you could buy it outright on O2 on pay as you go.. it comes unlocked and your existing sim to work straightaway..

if you choose to go with O2 refresh.. then cancelling the airtime can be tricky as confirmed by many fellow HUKDians over the last couple of days.... it has been a hit and miss for many here..I too am sailing in the same boat.... wondering which way to go..

Thanks battlefield1706, just wondering if there are any restrictions if you use other sim on pay as you go, eg all bands Inc 4G still available, and can you fully use calls, texts and data on my monthly id contract?

The Oneplus 3T comes unlocked, even if bought directly from O2. If the O2 staff say otherwise, ignore what they say. They usually don't have a clue, and just make silly assumptions.

You do not need to put an O2 Sim in the phone, any Sim will do.

I Imagine that if you get it on pay as you go, then the pay as you go sim is locked to O2 for 12 months and it's only the other sim that is unlocked from the word go, is this correct? (Sorry not well up on these matters!)

I bought mine from o2 and it is unlocked and as someone said it cannot be locked.

Phone is good :)

The phone is fully unlocked. You do not need an O2 sim in the phone at all, unless you're on O2. Both Sim compartments are fully unlocked, any Sim in either Sim tray will work straight out of the box.

Ok thanks Taliban, very helpful, that's even if it's bought on pay as you go?

OK keep your hair on! If I'm going to buy one want to be clear about it, and I'm not technically minded, as i mentioned earlier

If you mention what you want it for at the time of purchase and they continue to sell it then it must be fit for the purpose and therefore if for any reason your SIM doesn't work then you can return the handset, but as others have said, should be no problem.

Yes it is. However, many people have read about the poor customer service from OnePlus if anything goes wrong, and would prefer to deal with O2 as opposed to raising a ticket with Oneplus CS.

I bought directly from OnePlus, no issues with the 3T, but did have issues with both the OP1 & OP2. However, I personally didn't think the service I received was that bad. Yes, you have to be persistent, but then again nowadays it's practically the same everywhere. One was sent back for repair, and was returned in 10 days. The other was booked in for a remote session with one of their tech guys to remotely reflash the device. I thought that was great, sit at home, log on to the remote session and let them fix my phone while I wait having a cuppa. When I compare that to Samsung, when my S4 stuck on the boot loop, I was told to take it to Carphone Warehouse, who would apparently fix it while I wait. Unfortunately that was not the case, it was sent off for repair in the UK, and returned 12 days later. When my S3 refused to turn on, it was away for 11 days to be fixed. HTC took 11 days to fix my M8.

So overall it's not that bad. Personally, I think a lot of people over react to minor issues. I don't know of a single device which everyone agrees is perfect. You just need to be persistent and also realistic.
