Having dealt with banks and card authorisations in a former life, what you need to do is speak to o2 and request a transaction trace. 

o2 will then go off to their payment provider and trace it through the authorisation and payment systems, this will prove where the problem is and 99.9999% of the time its the card issuer either timing out, or the bank sending back a fraud check or a status 10... 

 

This takes between 7 and 14 days and you need to give over your full PAN (card number to the agent).

 

What happens when you try and pay with an agent?

Direct debit seems like a good plan

O2 have had a problem with their billing platform for a few days. We thought it was fixed but obviously it's not from all the people still having issues and posting on here.

Yes I know @anjiJG, I read your first post. I'm just mentioning about the recent problems over the past week or so. Have you thought of setting up a direct debit? It would certainly give you peace of mind regarding you payments. Guide: How to Pay Your Bill (Contract)
