If the numbers are scam numbers you can get your money back and the 0845 one has been blocked http://www.o2.co.uk/help/account-and-billing/missed-calls-from-0845-and-0843-numbers

 

Other premium rate scams you can find advise on the regulator's website phonepayplus 

 

As for documentation normally you need to be on the electrol register take bills etc to prove address etc. It will depend on your credit rating .

I'm a little confused by the OP's query. What does taking a sim only deal directly from the O2 website have to do with any 0845 scam or being sent a Blackberry bolt-on instead of the 20GB of data?

@Bambino There are instances of wrong tariff application re data Bolton (I am guessing an iPhone) and the 0845 scams are also on here .

 

But I hope I got my advice correct .

First I'd heard of it @adamtemp64. If the OP is purchasing a sim only tariff, why is that considered a bolt-on? It's a recently new offer, isn't it? An 0845 scam could happen on any network, couldn't it? Are the ones you linked to particular to O2 only?

Oncoming flagged the scam numbers to all the networks so hopefully they are blocked for everyone now.
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.

All I can say is..... Go for it and save yourself some serious cash. Scams can be avoided by being a little more diligent when signing up for things.

I've been a contract customer for 15 years and never been scammed. Don't be put off by the infrequ6complaints on here. Just don't click on Facebook links and keep a check on My O2 and you won't have a problem. IPhone customers have had problems with the default data being added as a BB bolt on but it's a simple phone call to change.
