O2 unveils Refresh – a new phone whenever you want it

If you are an O2 customer who fancies upgrading their phone on a fairly regular basis then it is worth taking a look at its new service O2 Refresh.

According to the network the service has been designed for customers to get a new phone at any time, without having to pay out their airtime contract.

Customers get their new phone, pay off the remaining balance and then start afresh.

They can also trade in their old mobile for cash using O2 Recycle, getting up to £260 to put towards their new phone.

“Mobile phone technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, yet the way phones are sold has remained largely static,” said Feilim Mackle, Sales and Service Director at Telefónica UK. “Increasingly our customers are telling us that they don’t want to be tied to the same phone for two years and, with 4G coming to O2 this summer, we want to make it easier for our customers to benefit from the latest technology. For the first time in the UK, O2 Refresh will make it possible to get a new phone part way through a pay monthly contract, at any time – quickly, easily and cost-effectively.”

O2 Refresh is available on a range of phones including the HTC One, Sony Xperia Z, Blackberry Z10, Samsung Galaxy S3 and Apple iPhone 5. The Samsung Galaxy S 4 will be added when it becomes available. O2 Refresh will be available in O2 stores from Tuesday 16 April.
