OK i was looking at taking on a second hand set. Am already with o2 on pay monthly. Entered all my details plus my debit card details and on the webpage it clearly stated my card would NOT be charged unless my order goes through.
Well the order did not go through, as the system for some reason wanted my passport number (no idea why as I am already an O2 customer for some 10 months now) anyway I was out so left it. Got home checked my bank and lo and behold £49.99 debited from my card from O2. Called O2 the support some girl with a south african accecent was rude obnxoious and basicially hung up on me telling me O2 had not charged my card.
Rang my bank, they can see the amount pending from 02 but could not do anything as they told me to go back to 02. So I call 02 again this time with the bank authrorisation code, still no joy. They cant see any pending order and then said it can take up 7 working days for money to refunded back to my card. Even though my card should have never been charged in the first place. It even stated that on the webpage.
So my only course of action after having money illegally taken out of my account to request a charge back. O2s support has been nothing short of usless, and the system will debit you card/ account even if your order does not go through.
Thank god my contract is up this year so i can switch away from o2. Terrible support , terrible system and being charged for something I did not purchase is the icing on the cake.
If your new reading this and thinking of coming to O2 ... think again. Terrible support and terrible system.
