The best Samsung Galaxy S9 deals on O2

OK, so the Samsung Galaxy S9 doesn't make massive strides on the S8, but that doesn't mean it's not still one of the best Android phones on the market right now.

Best iPhone XS and iPhone X deals on O2

Oh gosh, Apple went and did it. After years upon years of incremental upgrades, it finally made something special to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. For the iPhone X it has dropped the bezel altogether, while the 5.8-inch Super Retina HD is scarily good - and then it tweaked things a year later for the XS. Marvellous!

At one time, there was an O2 offer to top all iPhone XS deals.

Best iPhone 8 deals on O2

Thanks to the spectacle that was the iPhone X launch, the reception for the iPhone 8 was a little bit flat.

So if you're looking for the best iPhone but the price of the iPhone X is too much to cope with, try the 8 on for size instead.

FAQ on O2 phone deals

What are the benefits of O2?

When it comes to benefits of a O2 phone deal, the best known part comes in the form of O2 Priority. This is a scheme which offers the likes of competition entries, free tickets, coffees and other benefits.

Those that sign up with O2 also get access to events that O2 is sponsoring and most importantly, O2 covers 98% of the UK when it comes to coverage meaning you should never be worrying about signal. 

Can I keep my number when I switch to O2?

You sure can, if you switch over to an O2 mobile deal and want to keep your old number, then simply call your old network, get a PAC code and transition it over. 

If you were previously on O2, you can still keep your number but it is slightly more complicated. They won't let you keep your number, so you have to use this workaround. Buy a free pay-as-you-go SIM from any other network and tell your network that you're moving. 

They'll release the PAC code, which you then give to the substitute network. Then, you immediately get another PAC code from them. Take that to your old network, and they'll move your number to your new contract. Long winded, but easier than learning a new number!

Can I use my O2 phone abroad?

Like all of the other networks, O2 covers your roaming charges when you're in Europe. Stray out of that area and you will have to start paying additional costs for the data, minutes and texts you use.

Travelling outside of Europe? O2 has a number of different schemes and packages to help you deal with that - you can find them all on the O2 website

But there are now some excellent Note 8 deals floating around. Check out our comparison chart and handpicked favourite Note 8 deals below.

Now we know some of you may have fiery memories of the Galaxy Note 7 in your head when looking at this device but leave those worries behind.
