Kids on O2.

I have 11 year old child who I want to set up on O2, my wife and I are on a 12 month O2 sim only deal as we buy our phones outright, When I TRAVEL I generally have plenty data left over and would like to share the data with my children, but I am told I need to be on a O2 refresh account to be able to add them to it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

That's correct. You need to be on a Refresh contract https://www.o2.co.uk/sharer-plans

As they are minors I assume they are with you at all times?

If so, turn on your phone's hotspot and allow your kids to tether to your phone.

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.
