O2 new sim only deal - £20 for 20Gb 4G data + Unlimited Minutes/Texts.

Update:
TopCashback and Quidco have new offers... unfortunately none of them is paying £55 like before.
On Quidco you can get now £50 for this contract.
On TopCashback you can get £49.50.

And of course... if you are on O2... you will have access to O2 Priority that always have freebies and discounts, O2 Wifi, O2 Chat for cheap international calls, and so on...

Questions frequently asked by Op's.

- I have received my simcard, I am on a 4G coverage area, I am using a 4G Compatible phone (supporting LTE band 20 - 800Mhz), but my phone can't get the 4G signal, what can I do?

Apparently some of the sims that were sent out were not configured to work with 4G on Android/iPhones, and were compatible with Blackberry instead.
If you are not able to get the 4G signal straight away, please contact O2 (calling them or via webchat) and check if you have the correct data profile assigned to you. If not they will change it and at midnight of that day the new profile will kick in. After that all you need is to restart your phone and you should get the sweet sweet LTE signal straight away. :)

- What is TCB?
TCB means TopCashback... and to access it you just need to go to http://www.topcashback.co.uk.

Can you explain the deal?
With O2: The deal is £20/Month x 12 Months = £240 (in a year) That would be how much you would pay in a year for taking this contract (and that's the bill you will get every month).

But if you factor in the cashback that you will get from TopCashback or Quidco...

Quidco:
20 x 12 = £240 (price for 1 year without cashback)
240 - 50 = 190 (1 yr price - cashback)
190/12 = 15.83 (factoring in the cashback, still the bill you will get every month will be £20)

Top Cashback:
20 x 12 = £240 (price for 1 year without cashback)
240 - 50 = 190.5 (1 yr price - cashback)
190.5/12 = 15.88 (factoring in the cashback, still the bill you will get every month will be £20)

Will O2 actually give me money/cashback?
Well... the cashback is actually not given to you directly by O2 but via TopCashback (I am sure that O2 pays them though).

Is this a 30 day contract?
No, it's a 12 Months contract.

I know someone that works at O2, can I use their Friends and Family discount with this deal?
Yes you can and that will make this even a better deal!

Can I upgrade my contract and move to the 20Gb/20£ deal?
Depends on your situation... so it's better to contact the customer service, but if you do this you will not get the Cashback from TCB.

No... it's simple Maths... £20 x 12 Months = £240 That would be how much you would pay in a year for taking this contract (and that's the bill you will get every month).

But if you factor in the £55 cashback that you will get from TCB... you do £240 - £55 = £185 that's how much you will end up paying for this deal in a year... if you divide that for the 12 Months... £15.42.

£55 Cashback from TCB.

The cashback will only be payable once, but the deal you have posted is a 12 month deal - therefore the first month is £16.25 but the subsequent 11 months are at £20?

No.

12 months @ £20 = £240

Less £55 Cashback = £185 total yearly cost.

Divide this by 12 and it works out at £15.42 per month actual cost to you. (Although your direct debit would still be £20 per month remember.)

Ah I see, I just read your post and it indicated the monthly cost would decrease....had I of thought about it a little more I should have realised that £50 odd cash back on a £20 spend does not reduce to £15... my bad haha!

Think I need to go get myself a coffee ;) my apologies - I've seen many SIMO posts before that only take into account the first month and people buy in to the single month price rather than looking at overall period.

I have been waiting for this deal for a few days now because I've heard that it would come out and I am looking forward to leave Three. I will also have the Friends and Family Discount from a friend... (if you know someone that works at O2 it's well worth to ask them if they can give you the Friends and Family discount because it's 30% off the price listed on Sim Only contracts).

Any way to move on to this as an existing customer? When I try to upgrade via the Account section, I am just given a crappy set of options. Was hoping to maintain my friends and family discount in the process...

I am existing sim only o2 subscriber. My term is up and I'm now on a rolling contract. If I take out this deal on a new contract, is there a chance my cashback will be declined? Will I not be considered a new customer?

My plan is then to transfer my existing number to this new contract, and shut down the old contract

I agree about staying away from Vodafone. They have terrible customer service and they have terrible network coverage overall. I think the latest survey confirmed this (will try and find the source)

Remember to always check first with a PAYG sim as it depends on where you live/work. Even the online coverage checkers aren't very honest. O2 is the only network that works where I live. The other networks just blame the trees and the buildings for the poor coverage :D

I would wholeheartedly agree in regards to the negative comments on vodafone . They are THE WORST company i have ever dealt with in my life .You have been warned, be prepared to be bounced all over the globe if you call their ahem Customer Services i use the title loosely as they definately do not serve the customer

Don't get upset. Ive just emailed Rachel Riley, she's working it out now

Vodafonica backhaul Cornerstone is way behind its 98% indoor coverage through merging sites - last August at 63%

If you want 2G coverage for calls and texts go o2.



If you want a 2/3G signal at hom/work if you have a JCDecaux marked bus stop outside the door you should be ok
as 1800/2600mhz transmitters should be installed.
