Re: FAQs: Pay Monthly and Pay & Go

Hi,

I've just joined O2 on the pay and go go go tariff. ( so far so good)

I did find one difficulty in how the 6 month promotional data allowance is allocated to your account. I have contacted an advisor on one of the chat windows and though not immediately known; I end up being advised to send 'go10' or 'go20' to 21300; apparently this gets you registered although I've yet to see this on my account.

Hope this helps anybody who can't find the information.

 

Cheers

Re: FAQs: Pay Monthly and Pay & Go- promotional data

Hi Toby,

 

Unfortunately this did not work and no promotional bonus data has been added to my account.

I did follow this up with a phone call to customer support, and was very surprised to hear that the rep did not know anything about the advertised deal and had to find out about this first.

He did say that the bonus data should be added automatically so he and the supervisor would be looking into this to ensure the problem is resolved. ( it could be that the extension to the offer from December to end of January may of caused some issues?). The advisor did offer an attitudinal amount of data as compensation and said he would put 500mb on my account, and said he had set this up. I thought this was very good gesture from o2; even though it's probably more than I need.

Yesterday evening I received a text from o2 saying an additional 150mb had been put on my  account. ( was this a delayed resolution to the original request?)

Having checked this morning no additional data is recorded on my account; either the original promised & entitled 150mb or the 'good gestured' 500mb

I have recently joined o2 and decided on them because the signal appeared to be OK and because I ( mistakenly?) thought that the customer service set up was good so any problems could be dealt with competently. With hindsight I am beginning to think I would of been better going for one of the cheaper packaged deals ( knowing in advance that I may need to put in additional time chasing up resolutions to any issues I have).

Re: FAQs: Pay Monthly and Pay & Go

My phone has been disconnected as I didn't pay the bill in time, which is totally fair. I now want to pay the bill but can't use my phone to ring anyone (including 02) and there are problems with my online account (don't know why but it just keeps reloading the 02 home page)

I want to sort this out but don't know how!
