“Increasing problems”

Written on: 22/01/2014

I've been using O2 Pay & Go for calls and mobile data for a few years. The positive is their coverage which has generally been better than other phone companies I've tried - Three, T-Mobile, Vodafone, Orange - in out-of-the-way places such as Scotland and East Anglia. The bad is that even with a four-bar signal, their data throughput can be non-existent. Yesterday afternoon I waited 15 minutes for a web-page to load. On a drive down the M11, mapping simply didn't update for around… Read Full Review

“O2 Mobile Pay As You Go”

Written on: 25/05/2013 by meatloaf1966 (13 reviews written)

Without a doubt the best value when it comes to Pay As You Go. Everything is so simple and straightforward, no hidden clauses or catches, what you get is what you see. The tariffs are obvious and clear, bolt ons are a plus !!!!!! Simplicity IS simplicity, EE (Orange & T-Mobile) take note !!!!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/01/2011

Some of the o2 pay and go tariffs are great, they are all much better than contracts, and the service is simply amazing with many new ideas coming out all of the time such as o2 surprises with a mini game you can play. This is superb as it gives you something back and gives you something to look forward to. not only this, the bolt ons on the pay and go tariffs are to exactly what you want for example i get 300 texts and 500mb data for a social sim because im always on line, this is for 10… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/07/2008

I've been with o2 for about 5 years now! Had no problems at all, love the 'Text Anytime' although i use around about 2000 texts a month so therefore have to keep topping up £30 a month, which being at uni and that i can't always afford, to get unlimited messages :| so i'm thinking contract maybe a better option for me. But over all i think its brill… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/06/2007 by Tommo1616 (1 review written)

I have been with O2 for round about a year now, and have no teething problems with the network, they gave me a Pay and Go Sony Ericsson K750i at £89.99 which was cheap compared to Orange charging £120.50 for the same phone with no free memory stick duo! O2 even price matched the Memory Stick I was going to upgrade to from the internet and gave me one for £7.99! Unbelievable! I was also amazed at their reception, many people get rubbish signal it has nothing to do with the network but the… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/06/2006 by jovisa737590 (6 reviews written)

O2 Pay & Go is a very good deal! Just top-up £10 a month and you get 300 free texts, and you get more texts if you top up £20 or £30 a month, which is good. If they had better signal strength they would be really good. I have read some bad things about their customer services, but I have never used them so can't comment about them… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/07/2007

OMG! I totally agree. I have a Nokia phone and I got the 02 sim card of the internet and I topped up £10 and got 300 free texts on the 1st day I was getting a maximum of 3 bars of signal and now the day after I have had no signal at all. I am very annoyed at this, I have no idea how to improve the signal!

“I've been with O2 for a couple of years now. If you...”

Written on: 03/05/2006 by Buy (1 review written)

I've been with O2 for a couple of years now. If you buy the SIM card online you're entitled to 300 free texts each month, provided you top up by £10 or more each month. Seems like a good deal, and it is.

Unfortunately, the O2 network is very poor. Reception is scattered, and phone calls will often cut off for no reason. Around 1 in 10 text messages takes at least 24 hours to reach its destination, although this has improved recently. Overall, the quality of the service is pretty awful.

By the way I agree with what you have written because I have exactly the same O2 sim card, but I would just like to inform you that Virgin is a very good network and you have excellent signal. I am due to change to that network in 5 months.

I have used O2 Pay as You Go for about 2 years, and so far I have had no problems. The coverage is better than expected.
I recommended it to my parents, but they don't use it so often. One day it appeared that they stopped the service so had to send an email to activate it again, which they had sorted within 48 hours… Read Full Review

I have just changed from Vodafone to O2 and I have definitely had nothing like 300 free texts. Am I doing something wrong?

ITSONLYME - did you buy the (pay as you go) SIM card from O2?
<br>
<br>I checked the O2 site it's down now due to a re-design.. but myself and my friends have bought their pay as you go SIM only through the site and we did get 300 text messages free every month when we top up £10.
<br>
<br>I don't think they do offer these with the offline shops.. you have to buy it online.
