O2 is a UK mobile telephone operator, which is part of Telefónica Europe.
I have recently rejoined O2, as most of my friends are on the network, and I would therefore benefit more.
How to join O2
Joining O2 is really easy. You can either become a Pay Monthly, or Pay as you go customer. You can ordered a sim card, from their website, should you wish to go pay as you go, using your existing mobile. Full details of current Pay Monthly plans, are available on their website also.
I have always found the O2 network coverage to be fantastic. I have never experienced a lack of signal, in the area that I live. Therefore, the O2 service, in my opinion is very reliable, as I always have an active signal, that is able to allow me to make calls and texts
Pay As You Go
When you order a sim card online, you are sent a sim card pack out via the post. When it arrives, you are presented with an envelope, which contains :
- Use me booklet- detailing everything you need to know about the service
- Go for it booklet- contains swipe card, and further info on activating sim card.
- Yawn booklet - booklet containing the small print
- Sim Card
Activating the sim card
To activate the PAYG sim card, you need to top up your phone, with £10, by either calling 4444 from your 02 mobile, going online, or using your swipe card. When you make your first paid call , your sim card is fully activated, and ready to use.
