02 Mobile contracts

Looking at getting a contract & would like to stay with 02 as I have been with them for years but looking at the 3 network, I can get so much more for my money.

For example....

On 3 for £25 a month I could get...

500 minutes
Unlimited texts
Free 3 -3 calls
Free Skype (could call my sister in Australia)
Facebook & MSN Messenger
Free phone (nothing special though)
12 month contract


On 02 for the same £25 a month I would get...

200 minutes
400 texts
Free 02 - 02 calls
Free phone (again nothing special)
18 month contract


The 02 doesnt seem to have anything going for it apart from the fact my mates could text me for free with their 02 unlimited or 02 numbers.

If I phoned 02, are they likely to match deals at all to get a new monthly customer?

Would love to stay with them but their offers are terrible compared to 3....

Cheers
James

YES!!

I had exactly the same situation. Phoned 02, told them about the 3 deal I could get and asked if there was anything they could do.

They came back at me with a very good deal.

To be honest, they seemed quite desperate to lock people into contracts. Don't be surprised if the operator offers to come and do your ironing!!

Yeah thats free, only thing annoying me is that some of my mates wont text back people not on 02 because they have 02 unlimited & no credit so cant, thats only a few though so I might just go for it.

Im on o2,through the o2 website have been for years and my contract is 420 mins any network (20 are the o2 treat), 1000 texts, 1mb internet. It costs £18 a month on 18 month contract with a free phone! You can get a good deal out of them, its just bargaining with them!

Can you do the thing where it sends updates to your phone etc?

Says on the 3 website....

Sony Ericsson C510. Facebook is built into the heart of this sleek and social mobile, so your mates’ updates are sent straight to your home screen.

I've got exactly the same package. Asked o2 to match a 3 promotion that they were running at the time and they did it without any problems.

I rang to cancel my contract in January after being on a cashback deal for 12 months. I said I was happy with my phone (just one of those basic ones you can use to make calls with!). They offered £150 credit to my account if I went on an 18 month contract at £10 per month for 200 minutes, 400 texts and unlimited O2 to O2 calls. £30 for 18 months suited me fine. After 18 months it goes to £25 but I will be ringing to cancel again at that point.
