Don't get locked into a contract – get a new phone whenever you want.

Image of Refresh plans

O2 Refresh splits your contract into 2 parts – Airtime Plan and Phone Plan. So that you know exactly what you're paying for.

Image of Refresh plans

You choose the right Airtime Plan (minutes, texts & data) for you, and how you want to pay for your Phone plan – whether more upfront or spread over 24 months.

And because you pay for them separately, you can pay off your Phone plan whenever you want and get yourself the latest smartphone.
