Question regarding upgrades

 

Just entertaining this from a logical standpoint.

I can see from O2's website, that I could potentiually upgrade to an iPhone 7 for a £109.99 upfront and £35 p/m charge.

If I were to choose this, could I elect to pay off more than the £109.99 at the time of upgrade. (If i were to perfom the upgrade in-store) For example £200 or £250 etc? In theory this could lower the per month charge on Airtime.

I only ask as the £109.99 is the highest upfront cost that is available, without paying for the device in full.

 

It would be interesting to hear others viewpoints on this or even indeed if it were possible.

If you wanted to pay more then it would be down to the advisor & it would come off your device plan. Your airtime will stay the same

Re: Question regarding upgrades

Short answer is no.
The airtime and device plan are separate, so over paying on the device will not change the airtime price at all.
You can, after the first month, pay extra on the device charges, which will reduce your monthly device payments, but the airtime is fixed until you fully pay off the device, at which time you can change your airtime costs to suit by going sim only.

Re: Question regarding upgrades

Ok, thanks, that clears it up for me.

I could afford to pay the full device price, but I was curious to know if that was possible.

Thanks again for the information.
