On arrival in Singapore on 24 Jan I received the usual o2 roaming SMS message telling me that calls would be at 80ppm. Four days later I checked my on line billing and found I had been charged 1.66ppm a 100% increase! I immediately did live chat and got no acknowledgment of the o2 error despite sending a screen shot of text. I am seeking a refund for the call cost misinformation leading to over charging. My wife is with O2 and travelled with me. She received the identical text and overcharging so we can’t be alone. It must have happened to many others so keep the text and check the bill for this overcharging.
Call charges back to UK are £1.66 plus vat so £2.00 in total.
Your argument needs to be that the text is wrong, not that you have been billed incorrectly.

On return to the UK after speaking to a person rather than a very long live-chat, O2 have accepted that I was not charged at the same rate I was told by text and have agreed to refund the overpayment. In my case it is resolved. However I presume that others that have been charged more than they were advised by text on arrival overseas, will be treated similarly.
My advice to O2 customers is to keep the text of charges on arrival and check the bill after leaving!
My advice to O2 is to empower your live chat managers to resolve complaints, it would have saved time and expense all round.
