Hi all,

Now that O2 are offering Apple Watch plans I would like to move back to them from EE (I only moved away from them because they didn't).

I have a sim-free contract with EE for my iPhone and am on the £5 data plan for the Watch.

How do I go about moving? For a phone you just request a PAC code but surely this makes it a bit more complicated?

Thanks for any advice.

Pretty sure you would just cancel the EE watch data plan, move the phone over to O2 and then go into the watch app and sign up for the new O2 data plan.

Out of curiosity, why the switch? I moved from O2 to EE a couple of years back after being with them for about 8 years and haven't looked back.

Similar story to to me. Moved from Vodafone Sim only (with them for about 13 years) to EE Sim only 18 months ago for the AW plan. However, when VF started doing Apple Watch plans I didn't even consider moving back. EE have been great to me and I find the service great. Why the move back to O2? Is it signal in your area?

To answer your question (post 1) - just cancel the EE, get a PAC, move back to O2 and then add the data plan.

Yeah i went to EE from O2...best thing i ever did. EE has been rock solid for me for over 2 years.
I moved from O2 to EE a few years back, and although the connection has been really good across all over the UK, for some weird reason at my gym only O2 gets any connection at all. So dead zone like that might encourage someone to switch.

I have great EE signal in my gym (London), but they also have free WiFi too, so covered either way. I can however see how that might sway someone.

You guys are making me think twice now! Not really sure why I wanted to go back to O2 other than some kind of loyalty I guess as they're who I had my first iPhone (iPhone 1) with.

I'll stick with EE I think

I also felt that loyalty (iPhone 3G), but times change and you have to look after number one! lol
