Existing SIM only deal seems to be very expensive

My current SIM only deal is:


Unlimited UK Texts, Unlimited UK Minutes
24 Month O2 Sim Only
But if I try and buy a SIM only deal for 10GB it only costs £10.
Why is there such a huge discrepancy?

Tariffs bought with device plans are always extortionate. Sim only dfeals are much cheaper.

You can also use USwitch to upgrade.

Choose the deal you want

This will automatically redirect you to the O2 website

Just follow the prompts and choose the UPGRADE option

Complete the deal and nothing on your account changes except the tariff at the new cheaper cost

Payment date is the same and your next bill will be at a cheaper rate and will be made up of the pro rata cost of your old tariff and your new tariff

The change should show in My O2 within 24 hours

Volt benefits will still apply as will possibly a 3 month extra such as Disney+
