I have been on hold to customer services for 2 hours 45 min so far on this call 2 hours on my previous call. What's going on this is unacceptable. All I want to do is make an insurance claim. How long does it take to get through. A year ago it was less then 10 min wait on average now over an hour every time I call.

Customer service levels have dropped since the joint venture with VM, and the influx of Virgin Mobile customers won't have helped @Davidjn 

We recommend calling just after 8am when the lines open.

Is using social media not an option?

Going through the same thing right now!

the worst thing is I called them up last month to cancel a pay as you go pocket hotspot sim and the lady on the phone said she’d cancelled it. However I just looked at my bank statement and they’ve clearly not cancelled it and have taken money out again yesterday! How is this fair??

@Davidjn 

@Jay1972211 

@Roms 

 

I suggest that you contact O2 via social media, which will potentially save you a lot of hanging on the 'phone. The social media team are well thought of, although you might need to remind them once or twice.

 

The contact details have already been provided by @gmarkj above and are also in :-

I had my problem sorted on the phone. No luck with social media, waste of time that was, hopefully others will have better luck. 3 days and several messages and no reply apart from an automated one.

At least @Jay1972211, your issue has now been resolved. 👍

 

Sorry social media didn't work for you, reports of using it are often positive.
