Sorry if this query has been posted a million times, but here goes:
I'm looking to upgrade my pay monthly contract Samsung Galaxy S2 from tomorrow to the S4.
I'd like to stick with O2 due to an inexplicable sense of loyalty on my part. However, having done some research and taking into account my needs, I have found at least 2 better deals from other mobile networks (Orange and Virgin).
My question is: Will O2 consider negotiating to match or indeed better these deals or should I just give my month's notice to cancel?
Solved! Go to Solution.

If you can get a better deal on another network, then take it. O2 don't do loyalty discounts any more. Everyone is treated the same. Before you do switch, make sure you can get the same kind of coverage with the new network as you have with O2, if you're happy with the way your phone works now.

I upgraded today and even decided to stay with O2.
The upgrade team were willing to match a better tariff with Carphone Warehouse (on O2) and at the same price each month (£32). Although they were unable to lower the monthly cost (which is kind of what I was hoping for), I appreicated that they were willing to offer more to me at no extra cost to keep my custom.
I suppose it sometimes pays to shop around and do your research.
Thank you O2.

Wow i'm doing the exact same thing and i'm wanting the exact same phone! haha
Phones4u have told me they'll give me the phone for free, unlim mins/texts, 1gb data, £30cashback for £32 per month.
Unfortunatly loyalty means nothing to phone networks anymore unfortuantly though if you've no choice but to stay (can't get coverage with anyone else) then look round thrid party companies like phones4u and carphone warehouse. It's worth ringing round the third parties just to see what they can offer....
But remember, third parties cannot change anything like minutes, texts or data. Thats given to them from the networks (o2, virgin, orange, etc).
However while they have no power here they do have the power to reduce the price of handsets and offer cashback deals. (go instore and you'll proberbly be offered accessories too).
Remember that other networks are unlikey to offer you a special deal as to them, you're just a new customer.
If your happy to leave, you've got a better deal, and o2 won't budge then maybe its time to JUST LEAVE
