    Exclamation O2 Pay as you go iPhone with Monthly Sim?

    Hi Guys,
    I am in UK and what I am thinking to do is use my current contract sim on O2 [not iPhone contract] with iPhone Pay As You Go bought from O2 store.

    1. Will this work?
    2. O2 currently gives free 1 year internet access on Pay as you go. Would I have this?
    3. Would I need to activate / jailbreak or anything just to do the above?


    Any help would be appreciated

    Hi. The free internet bolt on you get only works with the iphone sim card you were given when you bought the iphone.

    You could transfer your current contract number to the new sim card. This should transfer your number and contract to the new sim and keep the free internet on that sim too. I'm not 100% sure, so please check before doing this. Here is the link to transfer your number to the iphone sim:

    When you get the phone you can ring O2 and they'll change your contract to an iphone contract so you'll get the free data plan & free wi-fi

    I dont want to change my contract as I have full cashback and pay only 30 for 800 cross network any time calls which is very very good as far as I know. Though I would like the free data plan and wifi.......... Please help guys....

    I'm not 100% sure but I think your contract SIM should work fine in the iPhone without needing to be unlocked (although you won't receive the 1 year free data/wifi unless you use the iPhone Pay as You go SIM or change your contract to an iPhone contract).

    You also shouldn't need to jailbreak but if you want access to Installer/Cydia and unofficial apps, then you'll need to jailbreak.

    alag20.
    i have a pay as you go iphone. i have inserted my old contract o2 sim and it works perfectly. just put your old o2 sim into the phone and update with itunes. your firmware will be updated and it will ask for itunes account details etc. your now officially with o2. as with data, you will have to take out a data bolt-on, around 7.50 for unlimited data. its as easy as that. just add it to your present contract.
    by the way don't tell o2 that you have a iphone as they will try to sell you a new iphone contract, they said it didn't work with a non-iphone sim to me! but i have 6 phones given to my employees and all work.
