Yup...


Pay Monthly customers will be credited with two days of monthly airtime subscription charges in January.

Pay As You Go customers will get 10% credit on a top-up and Pay As You Go mobile broadband users will get 10% off a Bolt On purchase, in the new year.

Re: O2 Network Issues - 6th December 2018

I was wondering if you will get compensation for everything as I was not able to make or receive call, text or data. I only see a mention for compensating for data & nothing else. I was waiting for an important call as well. I couldn't get hold of my children & they couldn't get hold of me plus my children's school couldn't get hold of me. What compensation will we receive for not being able to use our phones at all?

I am still experiencing problems with texts. They appear as if the haven't been sent (saying Retry), but recipient is receiving 8/9 copies of the same text. Looks really unprofessional. Can someone please tell me when this will be sorted out. Its really frustrating.

@Smithy466 you don't have to do anything, it wlll be applied automatically in the New Year. The press release is a few pages back (say 55 onwards).

Re: O2 Network Issues - 6th December 2018

My data & SMS texts & phone calls wouldn't work yesterday, and when it did work,because I never knew what the problem was because 02 never informed me, I sent alot of SMS texts trying desperately to get in touch with a number of people but it kept saying not sent, then when it did start working again people were getting lots of texts from me alot of them were the same message and charged me for them all! I'm on pay as you go because I can't afford to pay monthly and I try and use my credit sparing to keep credit ect.. but used alot of texts, and to top it all off I had to pay for recovery for my vehicle to be towed away off the a1 because had to use the emergency phone, and lost a days wage but more to my vehicle breaking down but still got a verbal warning for not ringing my work to tell them I couldn't make it into work, luckily I made it on time to pick my daughter up from school but couldn't even ring the school to tell them I may be late to pick my daughter up, because I couldn't get in touch with anyone to pick her up for me, I never had any problems with Vodafone when I was with them, I've been with 02 for a number of years, and had a lot of problems with them, I can understand a great number of people were trying to ring 02 today, but I was on hold when I rang twice today because I knew it would be pointless ringing yesterday with the volume of calls they would of been getting, I was happy enough to be on hold but rang twice today sat on hold for 40+ minutes, just for them to cut me off twice after waiting that long, but I've read what there doing in a way of compensation, (which in my opinion isn't much of a benefit to us customers specially pay as you go customers) and shows how much they don't really value us customers, even though they will say different, but if they did value us we wouldn't get a measly 10% credit on next top up, considering the inconvenience to alot of us customers personally I think is bad, when this last happened to me on the "Three" network which was only off for 2&half hours they offered me free £15 top up voucher, I know there's alot of people what need there phone more than myself but in a emergency we all need our phones at a time in need. #badcustomerservice
