    Has anyone read or discovered if there'll be an option to switch tariffs on O2 if you sign up for an unsuitable one.

    Thinking I might go for the 35 tariff and then upgrade to another if I need to. Can't see anything relating to this on O2s site though.

    Think of it this way - are 02 going to say 'no' to you wanting to give them more of your money?

    I seriously doubt that O2 will mind you upgrading your tariff you may only have a problem with downgrading. There may also be a condition to changing it (like you have to be at least 6 months into the contract) although that may only apply to downgrading?

    If they have similar rules to their current retail tariffs then...

    You can 'upgrade' your tariff at any time.

    You can only 'downgrade' your tariff when you are halfway through your contract.

    You can only 'downgrade' your tariff one step at a time.
    e.g. If you are on the £55 tariff, after 9 months, you can downgrade to the £45 tariff only. Then wait a further month, and then downgrade to the £35 tariff.

    Yes it does appear that O2 will allow you to upgrade your tariff but I'm sure I read that downgrades were not allowed.

    Rob did you get a chance to play with the UK iPhone again?

    Can be done

    I spoke to O2 a few weeks and did confirm that it was possible to sign up on the lower tariff and upgrade to the higher ones at any time after that.

    Going down to a lower one is a different story though. I think it was 8 months before you could lower your tariff or something like that.

    I am happy to start with the 35, but I am wondering if I should just bite the bullet and start on the 45, as I normally spend this anyway on my current plan, and when I get the thing I think I will be using it much more than my current phone...!

    Not since Friday, although hoping to have a play a lot during this week! :D

    My missus had a go today though, and she's more tempted than previously now... she's such a flip/flop! haha!
