O2 Open Code **INFO**

Just a heads up for anyone that has a o2 open code and planning to get a new phone. Picked up my Iphone 3GS and the guy said the open code also gives you double the texts on the contract as they class the code as an online deal as well

Ended up getting the 16gb version on a 18 month contract so should come out at £30.50 with discount but the guy said the discount wont be applied until the second bill as your first bill will be generated straight away but month 2 will be 60% off then it will go to the normal discounted price

From memory the differences are

*compass
* slightly better camera
* video recodring
* better battery performance
* imporoved speeds when connecting to the net

I would have purchased the 3g version but thought might as well go for the 3GS with it being the newer model even though their is not much difference

I wish mate, ended up paying £87 for the handset as I only wanted the phone on 18 month contract as would have got it for free on a 24 month contract. I am going to drop down to the lower line rental once I have done 9 months as you also get 30% off when you downgrade on the open code so will save another £6 a month after month 9 as wont go through all the minutes and txts on the current contract anyway

is the 500 free texts serious? I used open.

Load of bull sorry, the texts are built into the tariff & cannot be doubled at all

Thats what the guy in the shop said when I gave him the open card so will wait and see what happens when my minutes and txts come on my tariff, not too bothered as wont use them all anyway as 600 will probably do me anyway but wont complain if I get the extra 500 he mentioned

Did they tell you guys o2 open was to go on immediately, or you'd have to wait a few days?

I was told the o2 open code wont go on until the second month so I will pay full price for the first month but they will give you 60% off month 2 then when month three starts the contract will be reduced by the 30% each month as normal.

The guy mentioned once they put the order through their system it would start to generate a bill that would arrive within 15 days thats why you wont get 30% off for the first month but they will double the discount in the second month so you dont miss out

I was told that too.
Did they take down employer details? The woman for me just took the code. Asked for no employement details. said she didn't need them.

All he done was took the open card my brother had which was about the size of a business card and had his signature on the back and a code in the bottom left hand side on the front of the card.

Same here mate never asked for any proof or id/employment

Will be waiting to see my bill for the second month to make sure everything goes though with the discount and to make sure am not paying the normal £44 a month

Whilst it probably isn't anything to worry about, they dont know what they are doing. All the contracts I've had with O2 open have had the discount applied from day one.


And I wouldn't trust what the guy is saying. You MUST ring the O2 open department and make 100% sure it has been applied. Only then (and once you have the persons name who has verfied) can you feel secure its all fine. Seen it too many times. Not sure if they are just being awkward and dishonest, or just lack 1/2 ounce of common sense.

Tell that to RFM.

The sales staff said "The computer says no" and he said OK and walked out the store! :w00t:

Lucky would love an open code, £45 tariff would be great value then for me, guess I'll just hold out.

I had to sign a form confirming o2 open and it's on my contract too. 30% discount (O2 open) it says.

That should be good enough.... BUT still ring them. A mate at work had the same. I told him to ring, but he didnt. It took him 3 months to get sorted. Strike while the iron is hot and you have the upper hand (ie threaten to cancel the contract within the 14 day cool off.)

Quite right.... but ring them. You will get nowhere if you wait until the 2nd bill before you find out. You will be offically tied in.

Cant do it. Its your account. They wouldnt speak to me even if I wanted to. But its not a number you will be on hold with and should be verified one way or the other. Give them a couple of days though.

You joker, when did I say that? lol

My friend spoke to the guy for ages and he just refused to do it, so I told him to pass the phone and explained the situation and he was just being awkward and stated that O2 has been giving them problems about accepting the code etc.

I really want the iPhone but I can't seem to get a reception for it in my house!!! :x:x:x
