Buyout Upgrade

Hi everyone,

I am looking to upgrade to an iPhone X using the Buyout scheme however I don't own the phone that is required to upgrade (iPhone 7+) and was going to use my current Huawei P20 pro instead, can this be done?

Re: Buyout Upgrade

Only by using O2 recycle and using that money to pay off your device plan, or sell it to CEX for more money and then pay off your device plan manually.
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.

Currently using:
OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone 8+ (EE)

Re: Buyout Upgrade

Hi @kinetiktheory

Are you talking about the Upgrade on us scheme? https://www.o2.co.uk/on-us

If so you won't be eligible I'm afraid. You need to already have an iPhone to do that..

However you are able to upgrade if currently on Refresh if you meet the requirements. https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/How-to-Guides/How-does-O2-Refresh-work/ba-p/1014093
