Re: Contract


Unfortunately this is a customer community with no access to your account. You need to call them direct I'm afraid. 


Good luck but I doubt they will reconnect you  until your account is up to date.

Hi @Anonymous sadly this isn't O2 on the forum, we are all just other customers, however if you have a friend whose phone you could borrow then I would recommend giving O2 a call, explain your situation and they may be able to unblock your handset.

Otherwise your handset will be available for use up to 24 hours after the remaining balance has been paid off.

You could pick up a PAYG sim to use until your bill is fully paid.
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.
