I am on a O2 direct retention deal formerly from a retail deal O2 500/100 and called O2 just now and they confirmed the following:

All new retail (normal resellers like mobileshop, etc) and online (via O2 direct via phone or online) contracts right now no longer have 08XX calls taken from inclusive minutes.

From 1st August at the latest (she originally said 1st July, best to assume July) all current contract customers will no longer have 08XX numbers free (except O2 CS calls) and 0870/0844/0845 will be charged with letters going out giving the 30days notice, excuse was it was never really free but on some kind of promotion.

As for CPW O2:

It would seem to me this is identical for all new and current O2 CPW customers.

Basically means using the likes of http://www.saynoto0870.comhttp://www.saynoto0870.com alot more

and

using international calling services like http://www.simply-fone.comhttp://www.simply-fone.com / http://www.yourcallworld.comhttp://www.yourcallworld.com will no longer come out of your inclusive minutes on 02

Oh man!

I have been on O2 since Febrauary and one of the things that attracted me was the 08** calls!

It is annoying that the network can change their service as long as they give 30 days notice, but I cannot end my contract before the 12 months!

One of the networks I was with before - I think it was 3 - withdrew the free calls to 08** number without any warning whatsoever, first I knew about it was when I got a rather large phone bill!

Thank you for posting this info

You can leave your contract within that 30day period for sure, outside of it I am not sure.

Though when O2 started charging for 07744 and 07755 calls last year people were able to cancel their O2 contract early because of it...

They have now changed the contract that you both agreed to. HOw can they make you stick to a 12 month contract that you have not signed up to ?

Why would you spend such a large amount of time on the phone to 08** numbers? :?

If only... :D

When O2 do officially notify their current contract customers, that is when people should be calling to leave O2 early should they wish to and considering how good O2 retentions are people should consider staying, albeit O2's sms and data packages are quite poor vs. the competition, but I'm an old sk00l man having had a mobile since the mid 90s so not a text fiend and I like a proper keyboard and pc for email, those who really heavy sms and data really should consider Orange or Tmobile due to their flexibility.

Hopefully O2 will significantly improve their sms and data offerings by xmas or they're going to lose alot of customers, my contract expires in and around this time anyways so I'll be watching and seeing what happens along with what new phones are out, I won't be rushing this :)

You'd be surprised how many call centres etc etc are all 08XX, I'm the family/extended family geek so always on hold to these minimum iq call centre idiots.
