Transferring your mobile number from a Contract to Payg is achievable.
Are you out of contract ?
If not O2 will then let you know whether you have fulfilled any contractual agreement you may have with them.
And yes you would need to contact O2 on 202 to discuss your options.
If your not travelling for a long period of time then alternatives such as using a local sim card from where your staying while your there, or a world sim if your travelling to a few different countries may be options. This type of sim does carry an initial cost. http://www.worldsim.com/defaultuk.aspx
You can unlock your phone for free being on contract.
Or take your o2 sim card, turn off mobile data and use Wifi when and where you can, and ask o2 about O2 Travel depending on where your going.
Look at Tugo and other alternatives such as Viber and WhatsApp.
