On the 28th September 2023 at O2 Store I was sold a Pocket Hotspot 4G Black CCA on a monthly rolling contract which I could cancel at any point. I used the product (when it worked as connection dropped many times) until I called O2 on January 2024 asking to cancel the contract. I was told I had to go in store to cancel this. I tried multiple O2 stores both said I was unable to cancel.


Since then, I have made 26 phone calls to O2 asking for someone to please end this contract as I am

paying direct debit of £28 per month something I can no longer afford due to now being on Adult

Disability Payment for severe chronic illness. Every time I called O2 they would transfer the call to many

different departments including someone I spoke to from Philippines and south Africa


During my call with O2 support in south Africa I was told they would cancel my contract and an email

should appear soon. I stayed on the call until the email appeared of which it never did and when I

questioned why it hasn’t appeared they cut me off. Every call to support was ended by O2 support

cutting me off with no reason why. I have spent hours and hours on hold and talking to so many

different individuals and nobody will take responsibility for my account


It gets worse.


3 days ago I went to another O2 store and a Member of staff there said the only way around

this is to purchase a sim only and transfer the number across. I thought this is my only option and my son contract end in a month so he said he would change his number and use the sim. I was told it would update the tariff but the O2 app is now showing both and a direct debit of £56. I went into O2 store to see the guy who sold some it and he said it takes time for it to update in the app...its still not updated

I am now in sheer panic as I don't have £56 pounds until my benefits in. Ive called O2 again but nobody will help me. I have never experienced anything like this before


What can I do?

Thank you


Ive completed Support Request Form.

Social media you mean Facebook?

Im mentally exhausted knowing I'm not having to pay £56 month when already on benefits and in debt. No idea how O2 can get away with this. Ive emailed This morning Martin lewis also as no idea what to do. Called again today 5 times and they hang up after they can't help me
