Anybody else on O2?

I got an e-mail off 'em yesterday saying this:


At O2, we want you to have the best digital experience possible. That's why we're always investing in the best technology.
We're already making this happen. But with the current Retail Price Index (RPI) rate of inflation at 2.7%, the cost of everything is going up. As a result, we're adjusting the price of your tariff in line with RPI. This means when you get your March 2014 bill, it will be updated from £15.99 to £16.42.

Now I appreciate that it's not a massive hike, but it's a hike, nonetheless.

How would they react if, after I'd signed up for a fixed-term, fixed-rate contract, I suddenly decided one day that I'd prefer to pay 'em a fiver a month instead?

They'd tell me to fuck right off.

So why can they do it?

Apparently, as of this month if your provider tries this, you can cancel your contract and go with someone else without having to pay a penalty charge.

So that's what I'll be doing, taking my Galaxy S4 and number with me....

Any recommendations for a decent provider for about twenty quid a month?

£20? I'd expect an O2 employee to dial the numbers for me at that price.

I pay Orange £11 a month for unlimited minutes, texts & data.

Last month I sent two texts, made 3 minutes of calls and didn't use the data. I'm being ripped off.

On your special "business contract", do you get an extra length of string in case the one tied between the cans snaps?

I might be tempted if you do......

I'm on the £10 goodybag so get various things for that, it runs on the o2 network funnily enough although nothing to do with them.

Their goodybags start at £5 and they are flexible.

Giff Gaff is a subsidiary company of O2.

Im with orange (now EE) and get Unlimited Everything, including 4g and a galaxy note 3 for £31 a month.

I have this as i use my phone a lot (personal and bushiness) so I never pay any more than this. They did other tariffs though so its worth having a look.

I use smoke signals. Cheaper than O2 but causes havoc on the train.

Magoo, Put a couple of milk bottle bottoms in those tins and you will have a cheap pair of durable binoculars.
