O2 has a range of tariffs, whether you wish to pay monthly or pay as you go. You can spend £10 or £30 and you’re sure to get a fruitful allowance with lots of benefits.
You can choose to pay monthly with sim only contracts available from one month through to 12 months. Prices at the time of writing for a smartphone range from £9 a month for 12 months to £30 a month for 12 months plus access to the Sun+ online newspaper. There are a range of tariffs which generally include unlimited texts, several hundred minutes and data.
Pay & Go
If you wish to pay & go, AKA top up your phone each month at a store, over the phone or through a cash machine, there’s plenty of tariffs to choose from. For the frugal people, there’s Pay & Go Go Go, which starts at £10 a month, with the allowance doubling after three months. If your phone is 4G ready, you can also get it in 4G. If you call another O2 phone regularly, you should think about O2 Unlimited where you can get o2 to o2 calls and texts for £15 a month. If you regularly dial international numbers, an international calls SIM may be for you.
