Haven spoken to two different members of the customer service team (one of them hanging up on me) and written a complaint to the complaints team, i am hoping someone can help explain something to me.
I am currently trying to buy my first home and the monthly fee of £50 is affecting my affordability for a morgage. I am desperate to get this reduced. I understand that i am on a refresh contact and need to pay a fee to clear the remaining balance which is £175 (7months left on contact) but i don't have £175 to pay, so how else can they help me apart from the recycle option which in the long run will continue costing me more?
I've said i'd be happy for the contract to be extended if that ment the monthly payments were reduced but no one wants to give me an answer.
I don't understand why O2 don't want to help their most loyal customers, my partner is with EE and when he explained the morgage situation to them, they were more than happy to reduce his fee by £10 a month and he still has 12 months left of his contract!
If they can't help me, as soon as this is over i will be leaving, i've been with O2 for many years but will not make the mistake of renewing with them again.

It is not normal policy for O2 to reduce or extend tariffs though unless you have previously increased and your original tariff is still available.

Im surprised at EEBT, as they normally dont give discounts, especially to people still in contract.
Im sorry if this isnt sympathetic to the cause, but people will try it on at the end of the day, so they have a zero policy for staff on allowing this.

If you require a reduction in your contract but its not possible as your in a contracted agreement surely if your buying a house you have a deposit to put towards this. If that the case wouldnt make sense to pay off your device terminate your contract then take out a sim only deal at a lower rate.
