Unlimited Texts on iphone

I am out of contract on 6th Feb and a couple of weeks ago went on simplicity. I have spoken to upgrades on a few occasions and and every time i have been told the £35 per month tariff gives you 600 mins and 500 texts and if you pay £7.50 you can have unlimited texts so total cost would be £42.50 per month.

I spoke to upgrades yesterday and was advised you cannot pay £7.50 for unlimited bolt on you can only get 500 for the £7.50, has this changed?

The package was good for me as i use about 160 mins per month but use about 1300 texts, now its totally no good as i will pay for a bolt on but then end up paying for 300 odd texts.

The lady said we cannot offer unlimited bolt on texts on the iphone but i have been offered it previously and Vodafone offer unilimited texts.

Does this mean i need to change networks, seems silly.

No way am i paying £7.50 for extra 500 then having to pay for about 300 a month when i can get them unlimited on vodafone and its cheaper at £35 per month.

The advisor who told you about the unlimited texts in the first place may have been in retentions.

The standard upgrades department can only offer o2's standard published tariffs, bolt ons etc.

However, retentions are the people who, if you're lucky, can sometimes sweeten the deal. As far as I'm aware this includes the ability to 'save' customers by offering the unlimited text bolt on.

I'd give o2 a call again but ensure you're speaking to the retentions team and say you're basically going to leave unless you can have the unlimted text bolt on...and see what they say Smiley Happy

I think retentions can offer this bolt on but upgrades can't.
Ring up and request to speak to retentions and upgrade through them.
