Just from my experience with O2 from the last 4 years they will be any-network and will always be valid (ie on and off peak)

To be honest if there were any conditions to the included minutes O2 should really state it. I haven't seen anything to suggest there are any limits so I think its safe to assume there aren't any. And if there are limits then O2 should be spanked up for giving us sod all for our money

Minutes haven't rolled over (in my experience) for years. On the 45quid a month tarriff 600minutes is 10hours of talk time.. thats a LOT of talk time.

Ridiculously expensive :p
:) Yeah I kind of guessed that much. Seriously, though I can't find any information on the 02 website about per minute charges once you've gone beyond your inclusive minutes

edit: Just called 02 customer services and they claimed not to know what the per-minute call charges will be yet and they won't know until Friday. I told them I found it astonishing that they weren't able to tell prospective customers what their charges will be prior to purchasing the iPhone. Not a good start to my dealings with 02...

Here you go.

Not iphone-specific, but pretty much all their tariffs seem to be 20p/minute when you go over the inclusive amount so I think it's reasonable to assume the iPhone one will be the same.

Don't forget the WiFi and Data usage

Spoke to the Manager of one of the O2 shops in Pymouth he said 75MB for Data and 1GB for free WiFi.

Which given that free WiFi in the SouthWest is almost non-existant is rediculous. Good luck to all of you buying an iPhone with Ocrap.

Sadly I won't be one of you. Don't mind the cost, just the service provider.

Also this bloke said that the reason the contracts are sp ex[ensive is because O2 spent millions "upgrading" to edge. Contradiction in terms I know, but hey, anything to justify ripping us off.

I seriously doubt he knows anything TBH, especially when the limit that was previously announced (and lifted last week) was 200Mb.

The 75MB limit refers to o2's Blackberry tariffs.

As previously posted, this manager knows nothing and you can disregard that info! :)
