My monthly bills should be £35 a month as thats the tariff I have. However, because I am abroad alot with my job, my bills tend to be WAY over that amount.
Just to give you an indication:
December 2008: £20.02
January 2009: £46.59
February: £154.69 (!!)
After looking over at those amounts, they are silly amounts!
My average monthly bill is £76!!
The reason I am posting this, is because I dropped my phone and the screen is cracked on it. The insurance I have does not cover this, therefore I am left with a cracked screen on a Nokia N96!!
Do you think, because I am a high spender that o2 would even consider upgrading me?

I didnt even know about a priority list lol.
My average bill is £76... so yeah, I would be under Gold.
Do you not think they would let me off with the extra £4 lol

If you're spending a lot on roaming texts, another trick may be to move to a slightly more expensive tariff with more free texts - you get free roaming texts at a ratio of 4:1 (i.e. 4 of your free texts for one free roaming text) - but beware, you get no free roaming texts if you simply have 'unlimited' texts on your tariff.
RE you phone - I had a completely destroyed phone 3/4 years ago after it was thrown out of a 3rd floor window (don't ask..!!) - this included cracked screen, and the phone simply wouldn't turn on. Carphone Warehouse fixed it for £40 flat, and I wasn't even a customer there. Maybe they still do something similar?

Thanks for the info.
I am cabin crew so I am all over the place lol..
I do actually have unlimited texts on my tariff - but O2 said that I would get 125 roaming texts to use abroad...
I will ask Carphone Warehouse if they would do it, but if there is a chance to upgrade early, then I would rather do that as the iPhone does look quite tempting!
I doubt O2 will tho, it looks doubtful dosent it?
