O2 Refresh : Smash O2's Pay As You Go Prices!

O2's Refresh tariffs offer something new in the mobile world. They give you the ability to split your monthly tariff into two distinct parts:

  • payment for your handset
  • payment for your airtime (line rental)

The great thing about O2 Refresh is that it allows you to cancel your airtime tariff at any point. The idea being that when you want to upgrade your phone it seems illogical to have to pay for airtime that you will not even use.

However, you can use these tariffs to your advantage as there are some combinations of handsets and tariffs that yield a really cheap handset when you cancel the airtime contract straight away.

To save you time we've included the best deals below. We've compared them to an equivalent handset on Pay As You Go so that you can clearly see the savings to be made. We update this list twice a day to ensure we always list the best deals on offer.

To grab the deal, simply sign up to the contract detailed below. As soon as you receive your handset if it's locked to O2 you can often unlock it for free (see O2's unlocking guide). You then phone up O2 by calling 202 on your handset to cancel your airtime plan (within the 14 day cooling-off period, else you'll have to give 30 days notice) and simply pay off the outstanding balance of your phone plan and any pro rata contract usage. You then have the phone to keep.

More details about O2 Refresh are available on O2's Refresh page.
