Hello and thanks.
Yet again i've been on the phone, with letting the teething problems go of having my business account set up with someone merging with my personal one which i've had sorted, i've also had my extra missing promo data sorted too, these were sorted over the last couple of months.
An update on the £892 and £79 that was tried to be taken from my bank account, the £892 which i had blocked even though 02 thought id paid was an 02 rather big error, all i asked for was a free number change which happened, unknown to me at the time the 02 person terminated the 2 month old contact and started another one from the number change leaving 02 to bill me for the terminated contract hence the £892, the £79 which shows on my statement but only £76 was taken from my bank is the £48 bill and an added terminated fee, ya'know the termination that i never asked for but would be most welcome right now as im just done even caring.
I also still didn't get an answer for the obscene data usage that i don't know what it is, I was told it was a hotspot? I then informed the person that i don't have my wifi or bluetooth on ever and that i tether with a USB cable only and I was off work for 2 weeks and the phone wasn't even on.
The termination added fee that goes with my £48 bill to make the £79 or £76 has had to be sent to the complaints department and i have to wait for 5 days for a response as the person on the phone didn't have the authority.
Merry Christmas from 02 business, we're here to make your business experience a living hell and a nightmare from the very begininng, we can also help in trying to destroy financially your run up to Christmas too as we're incapable of giving a free number without falsey charging your bank nearly £1000.

The £892 contact termination which I was billed for and the day after the other bill which was my normal bill of £48 plus £29 termination free which I’ll round off to £77. Take away the £48 bill which was owed from the £77 which leaves £29 and add the £29 to the £892, This gives a total of £921 in wrong charges which is correct but....the £892 never left my bank as I stopped it but the £29 did in with my bill, my account shows £-921 but I’m actually only owed £29 so my account should show £-29, so when my next bill of £48 comes in if I’m only charged £19 then all will be correct.

Logic tells me that after your next bill you will still be £873 in credit unless someone at O2 actually picks up on that and makes a manual adjustment.......

Just an update on this. My next bill is in, I had myself down as being owned £29, my monthly bill should be £48 which is the contract, I have a bill that just arrived for £42.50, it seems I won't be owned as much as intended and unless there's more to follow, however I'm more than happy with any bill in the £40's, it's the first bill that been the closest to my so called £48 taffif. If it stays around the £48 where it should be I'll happy to complete the 24 month contact, i will then never touch 02 business ever again although I will get a second personal 02 phone instead, it has app for starters and I've never had a problem with customer care sorting issues although there hasn't been many.
Thanks to all that posted.

Thanks, I'm afraid I'm not so convinced, I've had two emails of 02 business, one at 03.32 and one at 04.08, both are identical, both at saying my latest bill is £51, there is a link that then takes me to my account that still shows £42.50 so maybe the extra is for the phone, however going deeper into usage it just states balance = £23.62 with my latest invoice going in to my detail further shows the £42.50 invoice.
This is disgusting, I just want out! Is there anyone that frequents here know If i can get my business account terminated without charge? it just saves me going down the legal routes.

Morning again, @Lee11
Your bill is £51. £42.50 plus VAT at 20% = £8.50, making a total of £51.
I'm not sure why but when you check for your latest bill the first screen shows only the total excluding VAT. I assume the reason for this, though don't know this for a fact, is that VAT is a government mandated tax and not money owed to O2. That's my take on it, anyway.
From what you say on checking further the £42.50 is made up of usage (airtime) at £23.62 so the actual cost of the phone is 18.88, which seems a rather odd figure, but that's what it would be to make a total of £42.50.
Hope the above makes sense and, more importantly, helps.
And to answer your question about terminating your contract without charge, I wouldn't have thought it possible. But you can certainly put your case to Customer Services and see what they say.
