Re: Mast fix expectations...

I'm started giving them hassle on social media, making it public domain.. and ... when the 48hrs officially clocks round (in about an hour), I'll submit a format complaint about reception issues, and the repair time being misrepresented by an O2 agent (complete with chat transcript, and service status screen scrape).

Unrelated, but still related.. my MBB plan is on a refresh plan, and the handset is separate to the data airplan.. If I wanted to change tarriff to reduce my airtime plan, can this be done, and do I need to clear the device fee first?

(I'm wanting to reduce my plan, so that if this continues 11x£X is a lower ETF based on amended tarriff ... I've lost confidence in O2)

Re: Mast fix expectations...

Once you have paid off the device plan you are free to change tariff or leave O2.

Re: Mast fix expectations...

Thanks..

Device plan paid off, and IEMI submitted via 'unlock device' on the O2 website, for my 4g router device unlock..

Its a waiting game now, between network fix, or unlock instructions.. whatever comes first wins...

It might look like a severe overaction, but when O2 rolled out 4G 4 or 5 years ago, the infrastructure upgrades killed my 3g at month 15 of 18 term for a few weeks.. long enough for me to PAC out at month 17..

Yes I checked coverage with a sim, before joining back up.. and the 4G has been generally flawless (4G rollout long gone)

... but I'm really 'fault sensitive' in light of 8 weeks on the offensive with O2, 4 or 5 years ago ...

Re: Mast fix expectations...

.. The paying off of the device plan, at least gets you taken seriously, and you'll find customer service put you through to the 'network team' when you subsequently attempt a disconnection...

At least I have an on going case with the 'network team'..

Pity I'm having to limp along, by putting the MiFi in a waterproof Tupperware box outside the window, to get a near usable connection... I'll see what O2 come back with, with respect good will gesture

... next billing period rolls over in just over 2 weeks, it's a convenient breakpoint, if not resolved

Re: Mast fix expectations...

Good news... it's finally fixed Smiley Happy ..

Had the 'network update' email from O2Alerts (and will test the connection tonight)... now just need to chat about a bill credit for a couple of weeks

... Pity it needed someone to get to the brink of walking, to get updates etc.

Sorry a phone mast in this area isn't working

This means your service might come and go until we fix it.

Re: Mast fix expectations...

It's getting ridiculous now. I hope they upgrade the mast after all this downtime.
