If i was to take out a iPhone 6s Plus on O2, i understand they split the contracts
do you have to be with them so long before you can pay off the device plan and change to pay as go?
do the devices work out more money than they do sim free from apple or brought on pay as go?

The overall cost would probably be slightly higher with O2...BUT you get the benefit of Refresh contract and free insurance
Have a look here

You can pay off the phone cost immediately if you want to and switch to payg but your phone will be locked to o2.
OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone 8+ (EE)

Once you have paid off the phone you have multi choices. Stay with o2, end the airtime giving notice, o2 have to legally unlock the phone so you can go with any network, get a sim only contract or ask for your PAC and take your number elsewhere. The beauty of Refresh.....

From my reading of the T&Cs, to end the airtime contract you do need to be past the minimum term (e.g 24 months) otherwise you would have to pay off the remaining airtime contract or take a new Refresh contract?
To "Refresh" you have to take another airtime contract.

No @adeuk5 once the phone is paid off you only need give 30 days notice for the airtime.

Thanks, very handy and full description. And yes that confirms what I understood;
If you have not completed the mimimum airtime contract plan, you cannot simply walk away from the airtime contract, or even switch to pay and go, just by paying off the device plan; you have to take a new contract

Trust me, that's the whole point of Refresh. Pay off the device, end the airtime and walk away or take out a new Refresh deal.....
