Reducing my tariff mean higher prices!?

My contract: £15.99pm - O2 200mins, unlimited text, no data, 24 month Bonus


I've been on my contract for 12 months now and I want to reduce my tariff which I was under the belief I was entitled to. I've spoken over chat and the cheapest tariff I can move to is: 


£22.00- 100 any-network mins, unlimited textsNo inclusive bolt Ons 


Thats 100 less minutes for £6pm more! 


Do I need to call up and complain so I can move to a lower tariff like the one for new customers below?:

£11.0050minutesUnlimitedtexts100MBdata1 month early upgrade


Thanks in advance

Re: Reducing my tariff mean higher prices!?

Contracts taken after March 2012 cannot be lowered half way through anymore. That option was withdrawn and would have been part of the T&C's you agreed to unfortunately, so complaining, won't get you anywhere in this instance.

Re: Reducing my tariff mean higher prices!?

please just ring 202 and ask for your options live chat is not that helpfull on this sort of issue or look in my-o2 for your options.

But you may find that you have no option to reduce now as they removed the option to downgrade last march
