Get the latest phone whenever you want with O2 Refresh

Image of lock

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.

Image of Refresh button

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

Windows Phone makes it easy to switch

Switching to a Windows Phone from Android, BlackBerry or iPhone 5? You don't have to worry about losing anything you saved on your phone. The Welcome Home to Windows Phone 8 app will move your calendar, contacts, photos and music from your old phone over to your new Windows Phone. And you'll still be able to listen to all of your iTunes tracks too.

Enough storage for all your stuff

There's nothing worse that running out of storage, then having to work out what you have to delete. With SkyDrive, you get 7GB of storage so you automatically upload every photo, video or document so you don't have to worry about losing anything - even if your phone goes missing. And you're in control of your storage - no one can move or delete your stuff but you.
