I second that O2 is a nightmare to deal with.


Anyone can be a nightmare to deal with, makes me laugh when people quote that. It’s down to the person you speak to and how you deal with them.

O2 have been a nightmare. I left three weeks after spending days trying to negotiate a better deal. Well done for getting it. Heat

My wife rang for her pac code and she was informed that they have new deals to rival virgin, so I jumped on her call at the end and got it at the same time.

Thanks. Having been offered a worst deal, I mentioned the Virgin Media match and have now received the same deal.

You can always give them a ring, sure they mentioned a 14 day cooling off period, during which you can cancel

Thats very true. So as o2 has treated you with contempt why not use virgin? Makes me laugh people are desparate to stay with o2. Unless of course they are the only good reception where you live. But as you don't state that i can only assume
I can't believe this is not red hot. Probz after a decade o2 at matching rival deals
Just called them been on hold for ages. Probably busy cause of this post. But worth waiting got this plus unlimited minutes. Voted hot thanks.
I didn't realise people still used O2.

Once upon a time they were market leading....
And on Virgin 1GB will rollover and whatsapp will not count towards your data! I wonder if o2 are matching that
thanks for the info OP and the post
Thanks got the deal with unlimited calls and no charge. as had 2 months left on old sim only deal .
I have been told that the £9 a month 5GB deal is only for selected pay monthly customers.

I wasn’t told that, they openly said it’s new deals to stop people going to virgin
Nice find.

Gf's 12m contract runs out in April so I've got a few months to go before I can try to start negotiating, probably by then this offer will have expired but in two minds about this, on one hand, O2 will have WIFI calling (I use it on EE) which Virgin wouldn't be able to do.

On the other hand, O2 charged me around £600 in a lump sum in a royal cock up (on their end) with a O2 refresh deal, which is why I moved to EE a few months ago.

I still think I could find her a better deal with EE by the time it rolls around, that whole issue with O2 left a sour taste in my mouth and it took so much back and forth to get my money back.
Just managed to get this through live chat, didn't have to mention leaving, told them the virgin deal and they matched it.
Just rang them up, they gave me Unltd Mins and Text plus 5GB data for £9 a month on 12 month deal
Called them and they said they have nothing to do with HDUK as they have their own website O2.co.uk and prices are there they are horrible and not willing to be felixble at all
Any tips on how to get better contract? phone broke and still 10 months on it.
Just called em. The deal is for existing customers only

Why is it? They told me the deal is to match virgin and is available for other people. That isn’t only for me then is it?

not for everyone ITS ONLY FOR O2 CUSTOMERS FYI
Got this deal recently on o2 after talking to retentions dept. So far so good.
I've managed to get exactly the same deal but with unlimited minutes instead for £10. I used the chat option and was transferred to upgrades.
