Upgrading on a sim only tarriff



I am currently on a sim free deal until July 2018. My daughters phone has broken and I want to give her my current iPhone. In order to do that I want to upgrade but would I have to wait until July?


I would like the iPhone X but quite frankly O2 prices for that phone are very expensive compared to other deals I have seen.


Anynadvice appreciated.

Re: Upgrading on a sim only tarriff

You can upgrade from a simo after 3 months if you meet the criteria.
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.

Re: Upgrading on a sim only tarriff

To upgrade on a sim only after 3 months you can only do it through O2 despite being cheaper elsewhere. And yes, the iphoneX  is expensive via O2 Refresh but your only option would be to apply for a contract through other sources. The beauty about upgrading via O2 is that there is no credit check.
