Talkalot versus 'Classic PayG' tarriff

I'm not a heavy user of my phone (i.e. I top up £10 about every two months). For some time now I've been on the 'Talkalot' tariff, which is promoted on the O2 web site as being for those who use their phones a lot. It costs 35p/min for calls.

Today I've discovered the 'Classic Pay as You Go' tariff, which would cost only 3p/min. That's almost twelve times cheaper. I'm left wondering what the catch is, although the O2 Chat line person assured me there isn't one.

It seems too good to be true. Have I missed something?

No Classic PAYG is designed for low users. It would suit you very well https://www.o2.co.uk/help/pay-as-you-go/classic-pay-as-you-go

Talkalot is a very old tariff.
The new ones offer much better value for money.
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.

Hi @ramasaig
Pay as you go Classic is very good for low users.
The charges are reasonable

The idea f Talkalot was that you paid 35p for the first three minutes then 5p a minute thereafter. It's a way outdated and uneconomical tariff. The Classic tariff is way better for you but bear in  mind that talkalot would no longer be a tariff available to you once you change.

Thanks to all those who have responded. I'm very pleased to have found 'Classic', and have changed all our family's phones to it.
