Hi folks - some much needed advice is desparately needed from you knowledgeable peeps!
I am deliberating on getting an iPhone. My current 12 month o2 contract doesn't run out for another 5 months.
Went to the local o2 shop to be told that I can buy a PAYG iPhone 3G transfer my current tariff for an iPhone tariff and everything should be hunkey-dorey. Phoned o2 customer services and they told me that this was not possible as my contract is a 12 month one and the iPhone tariffs are 18 month contracts ie. non-transferrable.
Went to the Carphone Warehouse today and they said that I will be unable to surf the internet if I stick my current o2 contract sim card into a PAYG iPhone 3G as the sim cards for iPhones are of a different type?! He did mention that I could overcome this by unlocking the iPhone but he didn't really explain it any further.
I am now COMPLETELY confused!!!
Can anyone tell me the best, cheapest way that I can get my current standard o2 contract sim card to work in an iPhone whilst having the unlimited data/web/wifi, etc?
Many thanks in advance!
