Suspending My Account

I will be in America for several months, and want to know if I can suspend my account. I want to keep the phone number as I will be returning to the UK, but want to put my account and mobile number on 'hold' so to speak. Is there an email address for O2 to contact?

Re: Suspending My Account

No email and no way to suspend your account either, sorry.
Just leave your phone at home and make sure you have a direct debit in place to pay the basic monthly bill whilst you are away.
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
