Why choose an O2 phone contract?
O2 5G is available in a large number of towns and cities and coverage is expected to grow rapidly, as the network has outlined ambitious roll out plans. As such, it’s a safe bet for future 5G coverage and if it offers 5G where you are now then it’s a good 5G choice already.
O2 clearly takes coverage seriously too, as it has been voted Uswitch’s Best Network for Coverage three years running.
O2 also offers flexible plans, with highly customisable allowances, durations and upfront costs, so you can tailor your O2 phone (or SIM Only) contract to your needs. It even has unlimited data, so you can make the most of your 5G phone.
O2 gives you free access to over 16,000 Wi-Fi hotspots across the UK, meaning that if there’s no signal (or even just no 5G) you can often take advantage of speedy Wi-Fi instead. And as an O2 customer your phone will connect to many of these hotspots automatically, with no need to register, making it a smooth, slick experience.
All O2 plans also come with access to O2 Priority, an app packed full of discounts, freebies, competitions and exclusive offers. O2 also offers both Wi-Fi Calling and 4G Calling on a wide range of handsets.
O2 lets you roam for free in dozens of European destinations. Many plans also let you roam in 27 additional locations at no extra cost, including the likes of the US, Canada and Australia.
And if you’re heading further afield then you can take advantage of the O2 Travel Bolt On. This starts at £4.99 per day and gives you unlimited data, plus 120 minutes and texts, in numerous international locations.
O2 lets you tether your full data allowance, so you can use your phone to get other devices online – meaning you might not need to invest in a 5G broadband device.
How can I keep my number when switching?
Keeping your number is simple. Just request your PAC code either by calling your current network, or by texting the word ‘PAC’ and your date of birth (in the format DDMMYY) to 65075.
Then, once you’ve received a new temporary number from O2 and activated your SIM card, fill in O2’s number transfer form and wait for your number to be ported – which will usually happen within one working day.
