Has Classic Pay As You Go Sim been withdrawn?

Tried to buy a new Classic PAYG sim this afternoon and was told in the o2 shop that it is no longer available and the alternative is the BigBundle sim which seems to be significantly more expensive. I can't see anything about the withdrawal of the Classic PAYG sim on the website.  Would appreciate it if anyone can advise whether this is really the case?

If correct, this will be a blow for some "emergency" handsets.

Hi guys, got info on this. Smiley Happy

 

So these SIMs have not been withdrawn, however they are no longer available from the O2 stores. They are still available across all other channels as normal including the online page where you can order the free Classic SIM.
