purchase phone only

I already have 02 sim only contract and would like to buy the new Moto G5, can I buy this without having to buy a Tariff??

Re: purchase phone only

Unfortunately to stay on the same tariff you would have to buy the phone outright. A new contract with that phone would be a Refresh contract and you would have to choose a different tariff.

Just buy it sim free.
If you order online there's no requirement to top up a sim card but some stores might enforce it.
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
