Re: The Innovation Thread. Got an idea? Share it here.

Hi Ian,

 

i personally love the honesty and the good news is were doing both.

We are working our way through ideas internally for new innovative products and services for our customers.

 

There will definatly be points were we have a seperate thread about a specific products to gauge an insight into your thoughts about them and what issues you have.

 

What we will do is look at a way to clear the thread down and notify people we have taken there idea or issue on board and not end up with a megal thread.

 

Thanks

Mike

I agree. This will be another short - lived scheme once O2 decide to pull the plug. O2 Ask will undoubtedly be next...

Allow ALL symbols for 02 passwords.   02 is the only site I regularly cant recall my password, Everyone of my passwords is unique and memorable but this year they involve certain symbols not allowed by 02.  I waste time and am put off signing in because of this

There are some app and other websites that will only allow limited symbols but yes, these days, all such applications should allow all symbols for strong passwords.

Including UPPERCASE, the number of times I have had to reset a password on a website purely because of some foible of needing, or not needing, an upper case letter in there somewhere, in addition to a number and a "special character" (not including this particular list of special characters, eg: \$# etc!)

I think in general o2 need to be a bit more on top of current technology before getting too carried away with further innovations...! For e.g., iPhone users have a lot of network features iOS is capable of that are currently locked out by o2 (and other carriers) because there is either not the desire or the will to invest and enable them at a network level. The exception to this probably being EE who have basically enabled everything the iPhone can manage (such as Smart Number technology/Full Apple Watch cellular functionality etc.)

This wasn't always the case, o2 (probably due to their initial iPhone exclusivity at launch way back when) were one of the first to offer Visual Voicemail (EE is the only other MNO that offers this currently - Sky has it, but runs on o2 network anyway). But when it came to newer features such as rolling out WiFi Calling they were last and with 4G Calling were second to last to roll this out. Even now, this has not been fully implemented correctly (SMS, MMS and Visual Voicemail over WiFi Calling still not available). Why not focus on getting all of the above enabled and then ensuring where possible/practicable these features work for Android users too!

I guess my point is, o2 used to be quite innovate - services like o2 WiFi (automatic joining if you have an o2 sim and 3G/4G prioritiesed if better service than WiFi) is sooo much easier to use than BT WiFi which is temperamental to say the least! Even o2 Broadband used to be a great additional service (never quite got the logic of selling this to Sky, was great for o2 mobile customers as well and at the time due to buying out Be Broadband used to offer brilliant speeds/capacity!)

Like I say, perhaps if o2 focused on some of the above, and made an effort for some network feature parity with Android that would be a great place to start.

So we've been asked for our input.. which we gladly give, but we get little or nothing back. Another example of non reply HERE.

We want to help you, we love to help you, but what's the point when we don't receive any feedback / confirmation that our concerns have been noted or even dismissed! 

 

Sticking it out there!

Hey @Anonymous. Sorry you feel we're not giving anything back - it's definitely not the the case, nor our intention. The Innovation Team are currently quite busy ensuring everything is in place for our Connected Car Trial but they are still listening, and we'll absolutely let you all know if anything raised on this thread turns out to be something the team can look into and implement/fix/improve.

In the meantime, if anyone has any other ideas not already mentioned, please do continue to comment on this thread about them. We are listening, we promise.

PS. On your sofrware one, I apologise - I'm not receiving notifications when I'm @ tagged in something, but I'm looking into it.

IIRC there are a few other threads where you've been tagged and we've heard nothing back. But the tagging problem would explain that. Thanks for replying here though @Chris_K, we appreciate it (and the fact that you're busy elsewhere too)

If @Chris_K is having a notification issue, can the other members of the board support team let him know when he been tagged?
And will he also go back through checking for mentions?
