That’s amazing. Well done for getting in that loop!
On a more legit note, on my 24 month o2 plan with 6 months remaining my early upgrade offer from o2 was upgrade early and they'll pay off the remaining 6 momths (£150) i therefore upgraded to a cheap nokia for like £94 and now i'm on refresh plan paying less than the original amount and able to leave anytime but staying for now as a 2nd plan i did the same, then requested a PAC online and got a £100 any phone over £100 code, now i'm in an refresh upgrade loop as i can upgrade every few days when i get my phone delivered and use the same code again therefore ended paying in full getting phone for like £15 - 30 or so. A steal, i'm feeling guilty but addicted to getting most of the affordable phones i can. I was thinking of sharing the code but wondering if its account specific?
It just seems a sly way to get you signed up to an inflated SIM card. 100gb sim is £20 with 6 months at £10. They claim you can cancel the airtime at any point but I believe you have to pay off your device first. So no one will be doing that if still a few hundred outstanding so people will be forced to stay on inflated sim price. I know I’m ranting here but a 2 year interest free phone from Apple will cost you £33 a month for 24 months. £20 sim on top and you’re on £53 a month for 24 months (£1272) Then 12 months at £20 (£1512) for 3 years instead of £2052!
By playing with the sliders it’s seems they want to tie you in to a 3 year contract as well paying full price for the phone! I can’t see any value whatsoever. The data plan is unlimited but here’s an exampl. 36 months £22 device monthly £35 airtime monthly £57 a month!! For 3 years!! £2052 for 2 years. I know the phone isn’t cheap at £800 but that’s still you tied into a 3 year airtime contract at £35 a month! Also as nice as o2 are at allowing you to pay the device off over 3 years you are still paying full price for the device and highly inflated for the airtime! So o2 get a device sale at full price, a 3 year contract and £35 a month. i literally see no value for the customer
Are you taking into account the cost of the sim plan though? Generally the company makes very little if any profit on the handset. 3 year contract whats the allowance and cost of that seperatly?
