I need some help please. I have come back from 4 days in Morocco and have just had my bill come through for £210.00!!! I checked online before i left for 'Standard abroad charges' and it states all the usual about texts/mins etc and data is £6.00 per MB but data usage would be capped at £40.00 per month. I have spoken with someone at O2 this morning and they are saying that you need the Data Abroad bolt on for this to apply but this isnt what the website states? Looking at the Standard Charges section and then the rest of the world section it clearly states what have i said? Am i going mad here? HELP!! Im awaiting a call back from O2 after they offered me a £10.00 discount which i obviously turned down. Any feedback would be appreciated!
Thank you in advance
What you could do is point them to there own website and make it clear. I really wish customer care would understand what o2 do sometimes, it really is a shame.
Let etc us know how you got on as we would like to know, good luck as well.
stand your ground.
30/5/17 I call o2 and explain the situation yet again to someone different and get the same feedback initially. After 10 mins of arguing she speaks to her manager and agrees that it looks like something has gone wrong their end and that they will be investigating. In the mean time they tell me that my direct debit will be cancelled until i hear back from them with their findings
5/5/17 DIRECT DEBIT GOES OUT OF ACCOUNT WITH NO FEEDBACK FROM THEM! I get straight on the phone to someone else and they tell me that the investigation concluded that i was charged correctly. After again, arguing my case and referring him back to their website he hangs up on me! Get straight back on the phone to another lady and hear the same story.... by this time im really irate with having to repeat myself! This time she is saying that the Data Roaming bolt on is the same as the o2 travel bolt on (?) after previous advisors telling me that they are different! Anyway.... after 15 mins on hold, she comes back and tells me that she is going to credit what i am owed and she would phone me the following day to confirm.
6/5/17 No phonecall received!
12/6/17 Speak to a helpful gentleman who checks the notes on the account and tells me that the money hasnt been refunded but i should receive funds back into my account within 3 working days..... so i wait in anticipation to see if anything actually gets done!
None of it sounds very promising but I do hope it gets sorted without any more messing about and further awful phone experiences.
Did you manage to get this sorted out?
I'm going to Morocco next week, and really struggling to find out the information. From what I have read in this post, and others about other countries, I am thinking that I might be best to just take a phone without a sim card and hope that I can connect to wi-fi!, so that I can avoid any hidden charges etc. As it seems even turning off all data roaming etc doesn't always work. Then there is the added voicemail issue that can get you charged.
That would be the safest way.
If you have Tu you can still use calls and texts over wifi back to uk numbers.
