I know this has been posted before, but it finishes on 31st Oct so thought people may need reminding.

I personally think this is an amazing deal. I have been with O2 my whole life, and haven't seen anything as good as this on PayGo.

Top-up £10-£14 and get unlimited texts
Top-up £15+ and get unlimited texts and web

This can be enhanced with some of their bolt ons:

This is what I personally prefer to do...Top up £15 and get:

- Unlimited Texts
- Unlimited Internet
- 1000 mins to your top 10 O2 numbers via O2 friends (for £5)
- 50 any network, anytime mins (Call 50 - 7.99)
- That still leaves £2 credit to use as you please!

To get all the above for £15 a month AND on PayGo is unbelievable.

To switch to Text and Web, call 2202 FREE or Text TEXTANDWEB to 21300. Alternatively you can change it on your online account.

Not liking this. I think they're trying to phase out the 02 Unlimited Text's and Calls. If you ask me Calls are far more important than Unlimited Internet which should really be expected in all honestly. Voted Cold.

This is just an enhancement on the Text tariff, and is independent of the O2 unlimited tariff. For those people who dont sign up to this, and who are on Text tariff, they will recieve the standard allowances:
Top-Up £10 - 300 texts
Top-Up £15 - 500 texts and Unlimited Web
Top-Up £30 - Unlimited texts and Unlimited Web

Therefore this offer will affect people on the Text tariff only. Others will be unaffected (including O2 unltd)

I have just ordered some of these for myself.

Mistake me if i'm wrong but can anyone tell me what better deal they get for £15??

On the sim card i get just now i top up £15 each month and for that i get -

- 150 free evening & weekend calls
- 300 texts to any network

I have a few bolt ons which are -

- £5 for 1000 mins/txts to any 10 O2 numbers
- £7.50 for family bolt on which 5 people (me, my wife and 3 kids) get unlimited calls and texts between each other. They don't need to top up any money on there phone as they can phone or we phone them when its in time or where they are.

I still have £2.50 of credit every month.

Oh and you 10% of your top ups back every 3 months so that's £4.50

Does anyone know if this works on the iphone? £15/month is pretty good for an iPhone.

I also would like to know if this is suitable for the Iphone

From the previous thread on this offer:

This is probably dopey question any idea if it will work on iphone?


It will work, however you wont benefit from the WiFi access that the iPhone bolt on provides. Also you would loose visual voicemail, although there is apparently a way around it. So yeah, should be fine! There will probably be a fair usage policy as its not an iPhone specific bolt on.


Not sure if this is the correct answer as I'm not familiar with the iPhone. But, hope it helps.

Sorry I should have mentioned:

Customers can change to this tariff by calling 2202 for free.


EDIT: now added to the description.

myself and my girlfriend both have iphones payg, and we use the unlimited tarriff. we got a years free unlimited internet with the phone, top up £15 a month to get unlimited calls and unlimited texts to o2's then the£15 credit you can spend as you please ours normally gets spend on non o2 numbers - usually we both struggle to spend the £15 credit tho as almost everyone we both know is on o2
#11
Hot Deal. I 'll phone them
#12
Can you use this deal to get on the interwobble with a dongle provided it's o2?!?
#13
Wonder what would happen to the original 12month free internet/wifi on the iphone if you switched to this tarrif? would you still get it if you topped up £10 or would it remove it?

Seems like a fantastic deal!

You can only ever have one plan active, if you switched to this one you'd lose all the benefits of the other.

Yep, its a plan.
And it's worth noting that the unlimited internet has a fair usage policy, not sure exactly what, but I'd expect it to be around 500MB per month since its on pay as you go. Like I said not sure if this is the correct figure.

Switched my tariff to this one, thanks for posting. Heat and rep left.

i personally think its a good deal

God I get sick of this 'unlimited internet' expression.

It absolutely is not unlimited and trading standards should be putting a stop to this.
#22
ive recently changed to this, i was previously on O2 Unlimited (Unlimited o2 to o2 calls & texts)

Now im on the following:

Text & Web - £15 a month.
12,000 txts (impossible to use if you ask me) & 500mb usage for internet
10 o2 numbers (£5)- 10 people with 1,000 texts/minutes used how u want - however, because of the free 12,000 texts, that will overrise the 1,000 text's so purely used as minutes only.

I now have £10 to spend how i want - i was going to get the calls 50 bolt on - but i think its over priced for what you get - i think its £7.99 for 50 minutes? - over priced but would work out better than the £10 credit? (if someone can confirm that i will actually apply for the bolt on)

Personnaly i think this is better than contract, ill never goto contract but this is sweet.

If you have mainly o2 users who you contact. this is the one for u! (Or O2 Unlimited if you dont need the WEB)

Another thing to point out, the 12,000 (so called unlimited) texts can be used on any network, not just O2- which is great to drop a text if you dont have people on your o2 numbers to fone u back! (if your a tight **** like me!)!!
#23
Decent deal PAYG wise but unless you can't get credit then you'd surely be much better off going on sim only than spending £15pm+ on PAYG.
#24
just changed to this the other day, did not know about the bolt-on £5, 1000 mins to O2 numbers, I will get this added. very good deal,

unlimited internet is a must for me, phones are getting faster, bigger screens and easier to navigate, sites like this one, facebook etc.

Good work - contradicting yourself via the medium of sarcasm....

Oh, and FYI 12,000 texts a month is approximately one every 2 minutes every day all month (assuming you sleep for 8 hours a day), and I thought *I* had nothing better to do on a Saturday night.... :-D

I would suggest getting the £20/mo sim-only option. You get 600 minutes / 1200 texts for £20, and a free bolt on from unlimited texts, unlimited o2 calls, unlimited weekend, unlimited landline, 200 extra minutes or unlimited internet.

And it's a 30 day rolling contract and you can keep your old number

I requested one of these 2 weeks ago for this deal, want to switch from Orange cos I constantly have no signal. Nothing has turned up yet tho! Better come before the offer ends :(

Thanks! I never knew that, thought it was just the data and wifi bolt on!

If the unlimited internet is "only" 500mb then it can't be a hard cap because i've been over 750mb on my iphone before now, unless the two tarrifs have different caps! Though I'm sure 500mb would be perfectly fine for most mobile browsing, it's not like you live on it!

I'm debating whether to change to this or if to keep buying iPhone sims off ebay to keep free internet, iPhone sim works out £70 cheaper a year however it means changing my number every year. But with o2 £15 could get 100 landline minutes as well... argh! Wish they'd make it easier!

Don't worry you will keep your 12 months free Web/Wi-Fi bolt on.

I was just looking on the iPhone Pay as You Go page on o2 and it says:
http://shop.o2.co.uk/update/paygo.html
When you buy a new iPhone from us, we'll give you 12 months of unlimited* web and Wi-Fi. It's called the O2 Web & Wi-Fi Bolt On, and you'll be able to keep it at the end of the 12 months for £10 a month if you like. We'll let you know when it's time.


That statement is not under the Tariff section of the page, which reads to me that no mater what Tariff you are on you will keep the Web/Wi-Fi bolt on as you've spent a fortune on buying an iPhone from them.

Also to confirm this view it then says under the Tariff section:
http://shop.o2.co.uk/update/paygo.html
When you first get your iPhone, it'll be on Favourite Place. It gives you unlimited¹ calls to UK landlines and O2 mobiles from any postcode you choose.
...
If you fancy a change, you can switch tariffs up to once a month.

not to sure if the first section of your comment was against or for my post but no offense taken either way!

and the second section - did you actually calculate that?

and if i read it correctly i think u are assuming that i could use up the 12,000 texts? - i checked my balance just before typing this, ive been on this tariff for 7 days now fully loaded including my O2 Numbers bolt on - these are what i have left:

Credit - £6.90
O2 Numbers - 901 minutes
Texts - 11,887
Web - 485MB
which expires on 10th November.. - 7 days use isnt too bad if you ask me!

for what i use my phone for this tariff is brilliant! - never have to worry about going over!

im aware the majority of people "Power text" - but i think its highly unlikely that anyone can use 12,000 texts in a month - unless like you stated, you literally LIVE on your phone - or have very fast fingers :D

Anyhow if this is great if you wish to use the internet & mainly text.. OR if you are just a texter - the tariff for the texts is great! (£10 gives you the "Unlimited" texts)

so for the tenner a month for "unlimited" texts and it suites you, who could turn this new tariff down?

Oh thats good! Might just switch tarrif then! And in that case the cap can't be 500mb because I've clocked up 883mb in the past month maybe they just target the people who use it the most and don't abide by the fair usage policy hence "unlimited"?

Pretty sure the iphone internet is a bolt on, seeing as you can change between the normal PAYG plans on it.

I've got an iPhone 3G with the 12-month free Web/Wi-Fi and it works fine with this deal! Very very happy at the moment, my £10 a month top up is getting me unlimited texts courtesy of this new tariff and unlimited internet as its an iPhone SIM card :-D

iPhone sim works out £70 cheaper a year however it means changing my number every year.


You don't need to change your number every year, you can port your old number over to the new sim. Myself and many others did it when we went from 30 day Simplicity to 12 month Simplicity. We got new sims but kept the same number.

They're not. They're very good but sim only still works out better.

Sim only is £10 for 150mins/300 txts/no bolt on
Or £15 for 300mins/600txts/unlimited o2 calls bolt on

Not bad if you need the minutes I guess, but the PAYG tariffs still sound better to me:thumbsup:

I am never having another mobile contract no matter how cost-effective it seems on the surface. It's PAYG all the way for me.

Any doubters check out the Mobile Phones forum on MSE - it used to be full of bargain phone deals but now the only thing people post any more is "Help I have a contract which has gone horribly horribly wrong and I can't escape."

My girlfriend gets 600 xnet mins + 3000 texts + Stop The Clock ("pay" for 3 mins off peak and get the rest of the call free) and Vodafone Passport for £9.79 a month on sim only.

And I get 800 xnet mins + 1600 texts + web bolt on for £19.58 a month sim only which after £100 Quidco works out at about £11.60 a month.

Tell me how that's not better than PAYG?

That's the nature of discussion forums though mate. It's always the way that you hear more negative stories than positive ones, regardless of whether there are or not. People don't normally come on just to post congratulatory messages about the excellent service they've been receiving. People who haven't encounted any difficulties just get on with it whereas people who've had problems complain.

I do agree to a certain extent, but if you discipline yourself accordingly nothing can go wrong. However, when you are on payG your much more careful with your precious credit!

Was only referring to o2's sim-only plans, Vodafone's are quite tasty!
