Problem upgrading my contract

Hi Community

I am trying to upgrade my contract since Monday with no success. I went to My O2 app and was presented with the message to upgrade free of charge. I chose my handset, sent it to my basket and was ready to checkout when I was presented with this box asking me to verify my account ownership with the text sent to my code. I have screenshot it for you guys to see.


So far so good!

However, I tried to send the code 3 or 4 times but it was never delivered to my phone, and as a result I was blocked from trying again and now I was told to go to an O2 Store to perform the upgrade.
My husband who is also an O2 customer upgraded his contract last Friday and his phone arrived the next day without any problems.
He told me that there was an option to skip the code and proceed to the basket but I must have missed it.

Apart of me, has anyone else here experienced this same issue?

Re: Problem upgrading my contract


Certain browsers can play up sometimes so it’s always worth trying online with a different one or as we always recommend, go in store as it’s less prone to glitches and you know if the phone you want is in stock. 

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Hey @hayley2019 did you get a chance to try this with a different browser and if so how did it go?
