Just really after some advice guys as I can’t understand what’s going on, I’m currently on hold and have been for 54 minutes to the Legacy Bill department- for the second time today, I can’t get through, and I need to sort this within 30 day according to the letter.

I cannot establish that 0808 281 6956 is an authentic O2 number. It is not found by Google and it does not feature in Guide: How to find help & contact O2

 

Please 'phone the number that @MI5 has given you above as the letter just might be a scam.

Absolutely @MI5 but I wonder if that's all part of the psychology of the scam and putting the scam 'phone number first of the three ? And if what is posted on here is to be believed, nobody will answer the genuine numbers anyway, thereby forcing the caller to ring the scammers' number ! 

 

One thing that using this forum teaches you is that you cannot be too careful ! 👍

So a little update- Ive now tried 11 times to get through to somebody in the Legacy Bill Department they say are the only ones who can handle my account. Im pretty patient so I have tried to trust the process, in the end though I've complained and the Lady who answered on 202 this time has escalated it and is going to get back to me- she basically tried to call the department herself but said the queue was too long even for her. So they're investigating what's going on! Side not that might be related- I can't upgrade or add extra's to my account at all through My02 I just have the following message. I've also double checked, my bills are all paid 🤣, via DD... so I have no idea what's causing this or why! Screenshot 2024-05-06 at 15.45.11.png

Are you using the MyO2 app or the web version ?

 

If you have only used the app, you could try online at https://mymobile.o2.co.uk/


If using the app, try deleting the app, rebooting your 'phone and then reinstalling the latest version of the app.

 

As you are aware, this is a customer to customer community. We are not O2 and hence if those suggestions do not work, you need to persevere with contacting O2.

Please let us know how you get on. 👍

If your DD's have gone out and your MYO2 shows nothing owing, I wouldn't worry about it.

I had the same issue a while back but MYO2 was showing a deficit so I knew the DD's had failed.

So, updated number 3 of this strange situation I’m in. I finally got through to o2 after being on hold for nearly 2 hours. 
The gentleman explained that my account was basically stuck on the old billing system, and they needed to manually convert it to the new, which would take up to an hour on the phone. Time I just didn’t have, so I asked what my other options are and he said they could allow my account to close, and o2 would cover all my termination fees. I specifically asked if this included my device plan and he said yes. Does that sound right to you? Because that sounds like it might be misinformation to me. I don’t want to agree to that and then end up with a big bill landing on my doorstop.
