Advantages Dont see any,
Disadvantages Poor phone lines, hidden rip offs.
This being my first review I thought let me write about something which has irritated me the most up to now.
Let's start with the lucrative figure and facts by which 02 rips people like me and you off.
O2 has so called three offers in pay as you go.
1) Pay & go
2) Pay and go Talkalot
3) Pay and go Talkalotmore
This both offers are same and offer everything same.Standard O2 numbers Calls: 25p for the first 3 minutes/day than 5p/min for the rest of the day.
Evening (Mon-Fri): 25p for the first 3 minutes/day than 5p/min for the rest of the day.
2) Pay and go TalkalotThis has almost same prices as the above plan but few minor changes are
Free Package5MB GRPS WAP
They also have other Bolt-ons which we will talk about later in the review.Rip Offs
The 25p/min charges the hidden rip off in this offer is if your call lasts for 1:55 minutes they will only count 1 minute. So You still need to talk for another full two minutes in order to get the 5p/min rate or 2p/min on weekends.
So, if you just keep making small calls under 1 minute than you wont be finishing your 3 minutes hurdle all day and keep paying 25p/min charge.
Many people would say I don't mind paying as long as I get the service. But On top of highly ridiculous rates to call customer service, they also have major problems in they lines. It's really hard to hear other person clearly (They are same or worse than 3g lines). Just because of that I lost few job offers (Recruiters thought I can't speak English or I have some disability in talking).
Another unusual problem I faced in the nights was when you talk they don't take money out of your account. So you think it must be cheap that I don't realize that money is being taken out of my account and in the morning when you check all the money from your account is gone! If you call customer service (39p/min) after topping up your mobile next morning. They will ask you several questions and than tell you that they don't know where all the money has gone and you keep loosing money while calling them as well.
