Why is O2 charging me nearly £200 more for my new iphone Max? Apple costs £1449 O2 £1623.99p!!!
Just upgraded under free upgrade plan but now reading through the documentation I see are supposedly offering me my upgrade interest free, great but then you dig into the figures and for the gold iPhone XS Max 512gb Apple cost is £1449 but O2 are going to charge me an additional sum on top of £174.99p!!!! my total repayable is actually £1623.99p!!!
what the heck are they playing at, think its time to cancel the order and give them the big finger! Christ i know we have the Apple tax but it now seems O2 has invented a new one APPLE/O2 tax! This is basically interest charges via the back door! Time to move from O2 after 11 years with O2!

If you are within the 14 day cancellation period then go for the deal that suits you best.

You certainly will find it cheaper elsewhere. CPW for example.
Or even giffgaff where they allow you to buy the phone in monthly instalments and you could then go with whoever gives you the best sim only deal.
Just compare their prices and go for what suits you best.
Best of luck

@Sunderlandafcla You must have known what the charges were and the difference in price before you agreed to the contract didn't you? O2 will charge what they charge because they can. If you don't shop around, whose fault is that? If you're still within your 14 day cooling off period, you can cancel. If you've gone past that date, I'm afraid you're stuck.
