02 Tariff on Mobiles.co.uk + UPDATED+

Found 30th Sep 2009
Hi All,

Im need to buy 2 handsets ASAP. (looking at Touch diamond 2, LG BL40 or N97)

Ive seen the 02 tariff on mobiles.co.uk for 600 mins and unlimited texts for £25per month. I spoke to their customer service team who said that the unlimited texts are a bolt on.

On the 02 website it says that any tariff with 600 mins or above you have a choice of bolt ons, ideally I want unlimited internet.

The customers services said that this cant be changed as its a special deal to them.

Has anyone had this and managed to change it?



mobiles.co.uk are correct,that is their deal on that handset,

the o2 website do different deals/options and different prices!

you need to weigh up which one is going to be suitable for you

I got a contract from mobiles.co.uk and changed my bolt on to the mobile web one.

I didn't encounter any problems.


Can you not buy it from Mobiles.co.uk then on receipt call O2 and change your bolt on?

Thanks for your replies.

I have spoken with 02 and they have said that as long as I give 30 days notice I can changed the bolt on. Which is great news. I will be signing 2 contracts with 600 mins, unlimited internet and 500 texts for £25 per month either with the LG BL40 or Touch Diamond 2!

If any of you guys no of a better deal please let me know!!!

Many Thanks

Cant believe it.

Ive now got 1 of my contracts through Mobiles.co.uk on an 02 tariff, 600 mins, and the unlimited text bolt on. for £25 per month.

I have just spoken with 02 and they have said that I cant cancel the text bolt on, if I do I lose ALL text allowance and have to pay per text if I want to go onto the unlimited internet.

However I see this on their website:

Inclusive Bolt Ons
If you're on a standard tariff with 600 minutes or more, you can choose one of the following Bolt Ons as a treat from us (excludes 12 month tariffs and iPhone tariffs). Our iPhone tariffs already include the unlimited web and Wi-Fi Bolt Ons at no extra charge.

Can I do anything?
