Favourite Place Terms and Conditions
Please note, this tariff will no longer be available to new customers or existing customers wishing to switch to the tariff from 29th May 2014 onwards. If you are not already on this tariff by this date you will not be able to switch to it.
- Available to O2 Pay As You Go customers.
- Eligible customers may change tariffs once a month. Existing customers may switch to Favourite Place but please note customers who are currently on the Original or Talkalot tariffs will be moved to our Talkalot 08 rates if they opt in to Favourite Place. You will not be able to switch back to Original or Talkalot if you do this.
- To activate or switch to Favourite Place, send a text message with your nominated postcode to 22204 free. E.g. SL14DX. You will receive a text message within 48 hours to confirm that your registration has been accepted and that Favourite Place is now active.
- Your confirmation text will include reference to your "renewal date". Your renewal date is the date each month by which you must have topped up with at least £10 in order to receive your next monthly Favourite Place call allowance. If you do not top-up by this minimum amount you will not receive your Favourite Place allowance until you next top up. This then resets your renewal date. You will receive a text confirmation.
Favourite Place is an O2 Pay As You Go tariff. By opting in to Favourite Place you are requesting that you wish to replace any tariff allowance you currently receive on your existing tariff. Favourite place gives you one of the following options depending on your top up:
- 500 minutes of free calls to any O2 mobile or UK standard landline from your registered UK postcode each month provided you have topped up £10 in the last 30 days; or
- 1000 minutes of free calls to any O2 mobile or UK standard landline from your registered UK postcode each month provided you have topped up at least £15 in the last 30 days; or
- Unlimited free minutes to any O2 mobile or UK standard landline from your registered UK postcode each month provided you have topped up at least £30 in the last 30 days, subject to excessive use policy, see clause 7 below.
- If you are an existing customer on Favourite Place and only receive 500 minutes for topping up £10 you will need to opt in to get unlimited Favourite Place. To opt in send a text message with your nominated postcode to 22204 free and we will opt you in e.g. SL14DX. Please note you will also be moved to the Talkalot 08 rates as part of this request. Opt in could take up to 48 hours to process.
Excessive Use policy: O2's Pay As You Go Favourite Place unlimited calls must be used for private, personal and non-commercial purposes only. You may not use your SIM Card:
- in, or connected to, any other device; or
- in a way that adversely impacts the service to other O2 customers.
- O2 may monitor your usage and request you to moderate if, acting reasonably we determine it to constitute abuse of this policy. If O2 reasonably suspects you are not acting in accordance with this policy O2 reserves the right to impose further charges, transfer you to a tariff which does not include unlimited minutes or disconnect your account at any time, having attempted to contact you first.
- You can cancel your request to change tariffs within 48 hours of opting in to Favourite Place by texting "NO PLACE" to 22204, at no charge. If you opted in by web or by calling 2202, you will not be able to cancel your request, but you can opt into another tariff and be transferred on your next renewal date providing you meet the minimum top-up requirements.
- The standard call charges for Favourite Place are based on the Talkalot 08 rates. If you are opting-in from Pay As You Go Original or Pay As You Go Talkalot you are agreeing to the Talkalot 08 call charges. Full tariff details can be viewed at o2.co.uk/mobilestariffs.
