Then follow this as a guide, thanks to @razo again

1. Follow link in switchy's deal

2. Scroll down to where it says "pay for your device in full". Try not to get distracted by headache. Click on "see our plans". Unless you actually want a new contract, choose the one that says 1gb, £356 upfront, £17 monthly. If you can't see that option, look harder, it's right in front of you.

3. Do you have a PAC? If so, why? You're doing it wrong. If not, click on "I don't have a PAC". Make more coffee.

4. Await delivery.

5. If you want to move your existing SIM and number and contract to the new phone, use the little pin, take out the SIM. And put it in new phone. Nothing to do with PAC.
6. Find (or order) an unused SIM from another network (e.g. three because that's easy).

7. Put the o2 SIM that you got with the phone, in the phone, and text STAC to 75075. Wait for the code and write it down.

8. Go on three's website and fill in the form to use the STAC (or if a SIM from any other network then maybe have to ring them to use STAC).

9. Wait 1-2 days for the STAC to process and check that the o2 SIM card no longer gets a signal. If it still does, the STAC process went wrong, curse a lot, and phone O2 to cancel. The first person you speak to will be wrong. Phone again until you get someone who understands their own terms and conditions. Or, try the STAC process again.

10. The first month's bill from O2 will come out of your account. Don't panic. DONT WHATEVER YOU DO CANCEL YOUR DIRECT DEBIT.

11. After a month, go on web chat with O2 and say you want a refund of the credit on your bill.

I don't really know if it's worth the hassle of O2 cancellation etc, considering you can get the phone brand new for £40-50 more on eBay

Of course, depends on the person, what's no good to you, maybe worth it to someone else.

Good price for this. I tried the PAC method with Three last time I bought an O2 Refresh deal (P30Pro) & it took them about a week to transfer the number. After 3 days of nothing happening, I called O2 & cancelled the contract that way (took 5 mins calling 08000 901 808 - no messing about with the customer service agents here). Eventually, they still charged me a small fee (£3-4) although I didn't use their SIM to make a single call/text nor use any data - possibly lucky to have escaped paying a whole month though! Also, my Credit Score suffered for ~3 months on account of this. Just so that people know what can go wrong.

Very diplomatic
Seriously not worth the hassle for £40 saving. In fact probably get it for this much new on gumtree/Facebook

I would recommend calling 08000 901 808 - no messing about with the customer service agents here. The guy I spoke to knew in 10 secs what I meant & what he needed to do. I said the call lasted 5mins (in my previous post), but it was probably much less than that.

I had the biggest hassle with O2 refresh recently. The rest were okay though.
They said pay the bill and we'll refund it (was £45).
Took 10 phones calls and 5 live chats, as well as 3 email complaints.
Took 3 months to come in and they finally did it, because I was going to do a dispute with my bank.

If you go online and search about O2 refunds, you'll see forums flooded with it - Even with pristine and unopened products returned!

Thanks bro but this is my general experience with customer service at various companies. Large part of that is to do with other-wordly call centers.

P30 Like new also available on Refresh. Haggled and got them down to 159. Worth a punt.

£40-50 on eBay? What are you smoking?

EDIT- Sorry. That was a bit rude. Do you have a link to this £40-50 phone please?
I've looked on eBay and none of the completed listings are anywhere near that price.

For real. Last year when the mate 20 pro & P20 deals were crazy cheap i had a nightmare both getting the deal & cancelling it.

The first O2 store i went to actually refuse to sell me the phone, as they TOLD ME my intention was to keep the phone and cancel the line rental!?!?

The next store was the complete opposite. As soon as i said which phone i wanted the guy was like, yeah i can sort that out for you, then told me if i didn't want to pay the line rental just call customer services to cancel...

I too had to phone a couple of times before i got through to someone who knew what they were doing and before that i had advisers and managers telling me they had been briefed by higher up that you have to pay a months line rental before you could cancel.

What i don't get is, if O2 clearly don't want people to exploit the perfectly legal refresh loophole (which they have been well aware of for years) they need to change the T&C's, not BS customers when they do it...

Oh i love being bounced around. You call an automated service which dont have the option you need and are then passed on to another department after being told you should have selected a different option (which didnt exist). 30 mins later and multiple escalations, i am ready to hit the drinks cabinet lol.Usually worth it in the end

I'm all for saving £40-£50. Cancelling takes no time. Also, their phones really are pristine condition, A challenge you to spot the difference.
Great deal MrSwitch. Nice & 🔥🔥

Hello,
I paid upfront £145 and took £17/month 1gb contract. Will I still be able to cancel it once received @MrSwitch thanks in advance
Or get it on contract from mobilephonesdirect. They have an o2 contract that works out as £6.50 a month after cashback. I got a previous deal at £1.83 a month after cashback

Yeah, ring them up when you get the phone and sim, they may still charge you, so you'll have to ring again to get a refund.

Cashback deals are always a potential risk but so far they've worked for me. I suspect anyone who had a deal from phones4u may be wary.

That's a 25% decrease in price. £45 doesn't see too much but when you look at it in a percentage it's a lot. I think it's worth it. Took me 5m to ring up and cancel with no problems.

That's interesting! I got a O2 refresh deal within black friday. As soon as the order was received, I didn't activate the sim or anything but spoke to online customer services who said if the sim was activated (by putting the sim in the phone) there would be a charge. At the end of the month there was no charge and my credit score wasn't effected.

I guess it depends how they cancel it - some operators do a thorough job & some don't. Yours seemed to have done a better job than mine
All these refresh deals. Great deals and all but one can only get so many phone contracts before their credit score goes to poop.

25% for a product pre-owned yes
When you think of it in terms of one NEW product and one Pre-owned...you can't really think in that sense.

In terms of value you're only paying 10-15% more.

It's more of the fact it's still used components (yes phones last long anyway)

Also warranty directly with the manufacturer is always a plus. I've had issues with not being able to send pre-owned back to O2 if any issues.

A new one from eBay for replaced as it had manufacturers warranty

Just an opinion, I just put it out there because my experience was horrible.

Mmmm not so sure! I find it impossible to tell.old from new. I find it hard to believe they'd have that many so called 'used' phones :/ released less than a year ago.
Initial return period, and 12mths warranty, sells these deals for me
