Dual Sim phones

Does O2 offer any dual SIM phones on any of its plans?  

 

Alternatively, does O2 offer any plans that allow you to use your phone in two different jurisdictions without incurring roaming charges half the time?

 

I live in the UK (Northern Ireland) but work in Ireland and would prefer not to carry two phones, and there doesn't seem to be a plan that really works for living and working in two different jurisdictions.

Re: Dual Sim phones

You can request an unlock code from O2 at any time if you have a contract phone so you can switch SIM's around yourself. The only exception to this is the iPhone 5 which they are not unlocking at the moment. No dual sim phones available from O2 directly but you can buy one and use your O2 SIM in it.

Re: Dual Sim phones

Thanks for the link to the dual SIM phones.

 

I'm thinking of using a dual SIM card instead of buying a new phone.

That's very cheap if it works.
