iPhone tarrifs



  Dynamique Flamer
Has anyone been allowed the unlimited text bolt on recently from o2? I stupidly ordered my phone over the internet and the only bolt on was 500 texts so I ended up with 1000 messages OMG way not enough my bill was £100.02 this month!!! :mad:

Just been told they wont do it anymore but I know loads of people with it!?

I have some advisor person from o2 ringing me back tomorrow apparantly. :rolleyes:

If you get a PAYG iPhone on Orange on the dolphin plan you get unlimited free texts if you topup with £30.

I'm not on an iPhone tariff, but I have the unlimited text bolt on.

They stopped it on the iPisch I think. Revlols has it but he's on a PAYG thing with O2.

I've still got an unlimited text bolt on with an iPhone tariff but I got it added at the beginning of the year didn't know they had stopped it!

Tom might see this and have some advice. I'm not really sure what you can do, TBH. Why don't you go into a store... I've upgraded in store before, I'm sure they can have a look into it for you... and it's better talking to someones face than down a telephone. Put some mascara on and look for a boy in the shop.

Will do if they don't change it surely its better for me to pay less for the bolt on than have a £100.02 bill that I wont be able to pay ;)

Say that to them. Tell them you won't be able to afford it otherwise, you're disappointed, blah blah blah.

They stopped unlimited texts before the 3GS came out. The only way to get it is with PAYG. I've got a PAYG simcard from when I bought mine.

I was about to go ape s**t or cry on the phone I was like just transfer me to your boss I work in a call centre the minions aren't allowed to offer it but when they get through to the bosses they can offer it so put my through now! Oh they're not answering what a suprise!? They are dealing with all the poeple you morons couldn't! :mad::mad::mad::mad:

FLOL. Didn't realise you were still on the phone. Yep, the sales team/call centre monkies can't do anything. When it's time to upgrade I just tell them I want to leave and they put me through to proper people I can do a deal with. :approve:

Keep at it lass.

That can't be right as they offered me it when i bought mine? I've only heard about them stopping it in the last 2 or so months?

Really annoyed I can't get it though, finally have a job so could afford to add it to the bill!

It might have been an online thing. I remember it was stopped for the 3GS release as per their website, so perhaps it was online only.

That's who I wanted to be transferred to :dapprove: bet the f*****s dont even call me back!
 
There's nothing you can do. You should have realised that 1000 messages wasn't enough.

They stopped the unlimited text bolt on before the 3GS came out. People complained, they put it back on. Now it's gone again.

The only bolt on they do is "family" one which is anyone on O2.

I complained and got credited £25 but they won't give you it now. You're stuck TBH. Just keep an eye on the o2 site and see if it comes back.

If you get a PAYG iPhone on Orange on the dolphin plan you get unlimited free texts if you topup with £30.

You can get unlimited internet and unlimited texts for £15 a month on o2.

That's probably a better move for you, Kerry. If you're going to have massive bills. Drop you're tariff and and get a PAYG sim. You'll be paying your contract plus the PAYG money but it will be way under the £100.

My first 2 bills for my iphone were around £70 and £80

I rang 02 and asked about adding the unlimited text bolt ons, She said no, dont do them on this package.

Rang back later and asked same question, different call person. she said. yea, no problem. thatl be an extra £7.50 month.

Deffently worth going into the shop and explaining

how the f**k are you using that many texts, even 1000 is 33 a day!

you text too much tbh, think about it, 'only' sending 33 texts a day is going to cost you £70 less a month, no brainer.

33 texts a day is actually easy to get through, I could get through like 20 texts on the way to work easy same on the way home, text a couple of mates and the misses for something to do, a few texts during the day and a fair few more in the evening, easy enough.

They prefer texting to calls these days ;)

got it in 1..

my bills are also high aswell kerry as im stuck in the same postition as you, my bills are about 70-80 and im only on 500 txts, so im stuffed, lucky i have my old contract still with voda that mum is paying for :eek: so i hammer that aswell,

I would be happy if i got 1500 a month, and drop the minutes from 1200 to 15min a month, as i hate phoning people..

btw if you want to keep a track on how much your next bill is goin to be download the App Mobileminute .. will tell you how much you got left of txt and minutes :)
 
  Dynamique Flamer
I have downloaded an app to keep track of it all now so that should help. I love texting that's my trouble :eek: I hope I don't go over again as I really can't afford it, but I am still going to try and get unlimited lol
 
  Barge
Keep trying. The O2 app tells you how many minutes/texts you have left too.

I send a fair few texts per month, but unlimited rocks. Just try not to use it too much, don't reply to pointless texts, etc. or text about 100 people at once.

I tend to email people at work, much easier and free.
 
  Dynamique Flamer
I got my o2 but at the moment it's saying I have used 1 text when i know I have used more than that lol

Convince all of your friends to get a iPhone and then use WhatsApp or one of the other IM apps instead. Free messages FTW :)

Odd go to the bill section and it will update,

also when you got the phone you get a email with login and passwotd so you can check on o2 website, that will show you everything :)

I dont kno of any other app that will tell you this im afraid, but there is a number you call and it will tell you how much you got left etx
