Confused - Basic versus all-rounder

Anonymous
Not applicable

Hi all,

 

I was wondering if anyone could help clue me in on this one: 

 

I am currently on blackberry all rounder data package, 500mb p/month but I barely use anywhere near a fraction of that  as I use home wi-fi, work wi-fi and cafe/bar/public wi-fi when out and about.

 

I was considering switching to the basic package at 100mb p/month - but it seems to suggest that I couldn't use wifi if this were the case?

 

Now, I am more than a little confused. Surely if you are accessing the internet through wifi the whole point is that you are not using your own data allowance?  How can o2 stop you accessing this wifi for free?

 

Please someone help set me straight! Any comments appreciated!

It just means you dont get unlimited o2 wi-fi but most coffee shops etc use there own it would not stop you using any other wi-fi

To be honest, the only wi-fi connections they could restrict would be their own 'cloud' servers.

 

Could you link me to the page which says this information. I don't seem to see which offer you are talking about.

Thanks guys that definitely helps.

 

So o2 wifi is free for all.

 

Just to clarify: If I switch to 100mb i can still use my home, work, other wifi unaffected?

I've no idea why they're still showing that, and I wonder if O2 do either.

Possibly because it has helped them squeeze an extra £33 out of sods like me over the last 11 months Smiley Frustrated Not the clearest product descriptions tbh, but i imagine it has been working in their favour - as in my case.
