As from today, o2 have changed their price plans to include unlimited texts. There are some changes though...

Only really good for ones who text a lot!

**
- You may loose some of your inclusive minutes as part of the upgrade to match with price plans - see o2 website for new price plans. (£30 p/m plan now 100 mins... £35 p/m now 300 mins...)

- MMS will now be charged at 20p each and NOT part of your inclusive txts (4 txts)

- TXTs from abroad will now be charged at 11p each and not part of your inclusive msgs
**

Existing customers can ring up o2 and request to receive unlimited texts from today. You are entitled to them, but THEY WILL NOT UPGRADE YOU AUTOMATICALLY. You have to claim it!

No extension to contract, or extra charges.

APPLYS TO ALL iPHONE PRICE PLANS (As far as i'm aware). PHONE O2 CUSTOMER SERVICES TO CLAIM THIS

- MMS will be charged at 20p each and now are NOT part of your inclusive msgs

Seems good, how did you find out about this? What number do you ring?
#3
just for iPhones or any O2 contract phone ??
#4
Hot x 1,000000 this :)

I have already picked up the 'unlimited texts' bolt on though (£7.50 per month) so can I get a discount?
#5
do you have to be on a certain plan already tho?
#6
2302 should get you through from your o2 phone, and just iPhone price plans.

New tariffs online now. http://shop.o2.co.uk/promo/iphoneindex/Pay_Monthly/3G_S/White. Looks like if you upgrade MMS will now cost you 20p each message. I don't use a lot of texts so will not upgrade for now to keep free MMS (rather 4 texts = 1 mms).

Anyone done this yet?

Spot On! Just rang and now I will have Unlimited Texts within 24 Hours, However if you text abroad it will cost 11p and is not included in your allowance. Other than that nothing else changes! Thanks OP! Repped!

Where does it say that? I see the part about inclusive txts which still says 4 texts = 1 for a picture message. And then it's 20p per picture message once you're over your allowance.
#14
Frankly I think this is an awful option.

Two of the best things about the o2 tariffs were the fact that MMS and roaming texts came out of the bundle. I never come anywhere near using up my text allowance and love the fact that when I travel I can keep texting without silly charges. So personally I'll be sticking with my old tariff now for as long as possible.

Inclusive Messages and Message Charges

1. Inclusive messages on O2 Pay Monthly tariffs (including iPhone tariffs) can be used for unlimited:
* texts sent in the UK to UK mobiles,
* (for 2009 Pay Monthly tariffs only and not 2010 tariffs), texts sent from abroad (including Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Mann),from your mobile phone for private, personal and non-commercial purposes. This excludes international texts. You may not use your SIM Card:
* in, or connected to, any other device; or
* in a way that adversely impacts the service to other O2 customers.
2. If O2 reasonably suspect you are not acting in accordance with this policy O2 reserves the right to impose further charges or disconnect your SIM or tariff at any time, having attempted to contact you first. Inclusive messages on O2 Pay Monthly tariffs can not be used for:
* premium rate messages where special charges apply,
* sending messages from the UK to international numbers, these are charged at 16p, except for customers subscribed to Discount Country or ITS who will be charged at 12p; or
* any chargeable messages you receive.
3. Picture messages or video messages sent to UK mobiles will be charged at 20p per message.

why would it be 4 texts for 1 picture messages if you have unlimted free texts? I can't see any sense in that? They'd just make them free too?

Think its more likely either 20p per message or it will come off your minute allocation
#19
The Simplicity tariffs still appear to to use messages from your bundle rather than charging.

Are you on the 18 month or 24 month contract because I kept my 600mins on the 24 month tarriff
#21
Thanks for this, i was currently paying £52.50 (£45 + Bolt-on) for 1000 texts and 600 minutes, Now i'm paying £45 for 1200 Minutes and Unlimited texts.

Roll on the 17th of April when i can downgrade my tarriff to the £30 one :)

I keep my 600mins too, I double checked this
#23
I have JUST came off the phone to O2.



They said I now have to be on a £40 contract to get the unlimited texts (I currently pay £35).



Also said that MMS messages are now 20p each rather than inclusive of your text plan.



Lame

Strange, but in fairness if they have changed the tariff online then you technically are entiltied to change it if you desire, ring again and lets hope you get someone different.
#26
she said it only applied to 18month contracts.

If I was on 24 month then I could upgrade no problem.
#27
Well I am already on a 24 month £35 contract so called O2 and been amended. Basically contract stays exactly as it was but now instead of 500 txts/month I get unlimited. Heat added
#28
Says this on the website -

Inclusive text
Your inclusive text allowance can be used for UK text and picture messaging.
#29
cold, i want mms and roaming
#30
100%

Just confirmed with O2 - call them "08442 020202 opt2"

Each MMS on "New" iphone Monthly or iphone Simplicity plans
is 20pence per message from today

The text on the website is incorrect and will be updated -- 4 texts = 1MMS is NO MORE (on the new plans)

COLD COLD COLD COLD COLD

As I am at end of 18month £35 (600mins + 1200txts + 1MMS=4txts) if I move to the 1month iphone simplicity plan I will move to £20 (300mins+unlimited txts+20pence per MMS) --- NOT GOOD
#31
"MMS will not be charged at 20p each and NOT part of your inclusive msgs"

Think you mean they will be charged at 20p and NOT form part of minutes
#32
Taken from http://shop.o2.co.uk/tariffs/sim-only-iphone @11.02am 26/02/10.....

O2


Inclusive text

Your inclusive text allowance can be used for UK text, picture, video or roaming messages.

1 picture or video texts sent is equivalent to 4 text messages.

1 text message sent from abroad is equivalent to 4 text messages.

I get that now on my iPhone Simplicity tariff.

I think people are confusing the iPhone Simplicity tariffs with other tariffs....

I'm on an 18month contract with 600Mins and 600Txts. I'd rather keep this than drop to 300mins and have unlimited txts.
#35
That text is WRONG on their website - they are in the process of changing it

Have now called 3 different o2 agents

1 MMS == 20 pence with no option to use (4txts=1MMS)

If you are on a package prior to today you keep the 4txts=1MMS
#36
Not hot for me. I don't use enough texts to benefit from unlimited, but do use MMS and will shortly be abroad on holiday, so upgrading will only cost me money.

Can anyone confirm that the old rates still apply if you don't upgrade?
#37
I currently pay £20 per month for an "Simplicity for iPhone" tariff and get the following:

[LIST]
[*]600 Minutes.
[*]1200 texts.
[*]Unlimited Data.
[*]Free Wifi @ Bt Openzone & The Cloud hotspots.
[*]If I text from abroad, 4 texts are taken from my 1200 allowance.
[*]If I send an MMS picture, 4 texts are taken from my 1200 allowance.
[/LIST]

So the "MMS/Abroad" option hasn't changed, it's just that if I took out that £20 tariff now I would get 300 minutes (instead of 600) and unlimited texts (instead of the 1200 I get currently).

So for me the tariff is no good as minutes are more important than texts, but it might suit some people.

#38
So on a £35 contract i would lose 300 mins to get unlimited texts? Or am I wrong there?
banned 1 Like #39
Cold as ice.

Lose free roaming texts (the best thing about o2), free MMS, and lots of minutes, in exchange for getting more texts that I'll never use?

No ta. Terrible deal and destroys any competitive advantage o2 had over Orange/Vodas iPhone offerings.

This... job done. The extra charges with Int. Roaming and now 20p per MMS isn't going to bother me too much. I'd rather have the unlimited text option so that I don't have to worry about watching my limits.
