Still has to be reported within 24 hours but certainly a step in the right direction.

 

"Mobile users will be protected from huge bills run up on stolen phones, thanks to an agreement between major operators and the government.

EE, O2, Three, Virgin Media and Vodafone have all signed a voluntary agreement to offer consumers a £100 ‘liability cap’ – a limit set on a certain party's liability – for their pay monthly phone when they report it lost or stolen to the mobile network and police within 24 hours."

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.
