Why did you think that?
If your friends on payg don't have a text bundle it is chargeable.
Just how good are you friends with them? You can add a £7.50 bolt on to your account if you wish where you nominate up to four other o2 numbers which will give all five of you unlimited free calls and texts to each other, which is n excellent option.

Re: Costing pay and go customers to text me

i assumed it was free for pay and go to text pay monthly phones as both are on the o2 network, again this is my first experience with a contract phone

If your friends are on the O2 Unlimited tariff then they can text you got free. BUT when you join O2 it takes a few days for the new number to reach all the systems. So they might not be able to text fir free until a few days have passed.

o2 unlimited they'd be on. I know a few people who have a contract phone and haven't experienced the same problem.
