Re: Found a cheaper upgrade

It's with O2 but not from O2.
MPD will get commission for placing your contract with O2 and they choose to pass those savings to you as an incentive.
If you want to take the offer, just call O2 when you have got it and ask them to migrate your number to the new contract, which will immediately cancel your current contract and generate a final bill for it.
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.

@Anonymous Be aware that the contract with MPD will be a standard 24 month contract, and not O2 Refresh, meaning you will have no option to pay off your device earlier, or alter your air time plan.
