auto top up

Hope you can help.   I am a pensioner and  am auto top up - yet my telephone is for emergency use only.  My phone is hardly ever used - about once or twice a year - yet auto top up happens - and I can not afford it.  Please advise is there is a way to combat this problem which I would think relates to many older people.  Otherwise I will have no alternative other than to cancel the auto top up and possibly ditch the phone.  Your advice would be appreciated.


Yours faithfully,

Re: auto top up


Just cancel the auto top up option in your MyO2 and top up manually when required.
