Well, I come here in frustration!
I've been an o2 customer for 5 years now and, It's been fairly stress-free. Until today. I received a text this morning claiming I had an overdue payment on my account that has been overdue for a while. As the amount was wrong and, this was the first time I heard about it, I assumed it was a scam. A few hours later I got an email saying the same thing and, including my phone number.
I decided at this point to contact O2 on the app. I have proof my device plan came out this month (also a different amount to claimed) and, my O2 (on web and app) show NO overdue payments. I eventually got a response saying that there IS an overdue payment on my account and, connecting it to the old device that I paid off in full last month. They keep going around in circles and, keep telling me to phone the payment management team (as this is now been escalated due to my "late" payment) and, to "relogin" to my account.
I phoned the line that it transfers you to when your phone is barred and, no word of a lie it said "Your account is overdue, you need to pay in full the balance of... £0". You can't make this up! I waited 30 minutes on the line and, due to having a toddler I couldn't hold on any longer. I've gone back and seen that the quoted amount due is my old device plan cost. This is clearly an error but, they won't budge on it.
Surely, if I paid my device plan in full and, everything BUT o2 customer services is saying I owe nothing then, this is an error?
Think we need some additional help here @ss1997 so I will tag the community gurus to investigate.
