How to Switch from Pay as You Go to Contract O2

If you`re an O2 customer who`s currently on a pay as you go plan but wants to switch to a contract plan, there are a few things you need to know to make the transition as smooth as possible. Here`s a step-by-step guide on how to switch from pay as you go to contract O2.

Step 1: Check Your Eligibility

Before you start the process of switching to a contract plan, you need to check whether you`re eligible for an O2 contract. To do this, you can either check online or call O2 customer service. Typically, O2 requires a credit check to approve a contract plan, so make sure your credit score is in good shape.

Step 2: Choose a Plan

Once you know you`re eligible for a contract plan, it`s time to choose the plan that suits your needs. O2 offers a range of plans with different data allowances, call minutes, and texts. Make sure you choose a plan that fits your budget and usage requirements.

Step 3: Purchase a New Phone

If you`re switching from pay as you go to contract, you`ll likely need a new phone. You can either buy a phone outright or choose a plan that includes a phone as part of the package. O2 offers a range of phones from top brands like Apple, Samsung, and Huawei.

Step 4: Transfer Your Number

If you want to keep your current phone number, you`ll need to request a PAC (porting authorisation code) from O2. Once you have this code, you can provide it to your new provider and they`ll handle the transfer process for you.

Step 5: Activate Your New SIM

Once you have your new phone and plan, it`s time to activate your new SIM card. You can do this online or by calling customer service. Make sure you follow the instructions carefully to avoid any issues.

Step 6: Cancel Pay as You Go

Finally, once you`ve activated your new SIM card, you need to cancel your pay as you go plan. You can do this online or by calling O2 customer service. Make sure you don`t cancel your pay as you go plan until you`re sure your new contract plan is activated and working smoothly.
