I asked in my local O2 store for a pay monthly nano sim for my iPad Air. I don't understand why they said I had to sign up for a business contract (it's for personal use), but it seemed to be the only way they could do it.
I can't register to MyO2 - support says you can't do this from an iPad because you can't receive SMS texts! I asked support for a pin to register for MyO2 Business, which was sent by post; but I can't find any way of doing things I need on the MyO2 Business web site. How do I find out what my data usage is so far this month? How do I buy a data bolt-on if I run out?
And, in particular, is there a better way of getting a pay-monthly sim-only account for my iPad Air? I'm on the verge of cancelling and going down the road!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thankfully all is now sorted, thanks to a very helpful person at a different O2 shop. I've been able to cancel the business contract, and move over to a 'consumer' sim-only deal. When I make my first top-up in a month's time, I should be able to enter my bank details and have the payment taken automaticall every month. We'll see. It does seem that the shops aren't well informed about details like this, which is what caused the other one to give me a business account.
Again, thanks to all for advice and support.
