Who is O2?
O2 began life as part of the BT Group, and their BT Cellnet offering was one of the popular Pay as you Go and Pay Monthly services on offer in the 1990s. This was separated from the BT Group in 2002 and became known as O2, as they focused solely on mobile phones and not fixed line connectivity.
O2 was purchased in 2006 by Telefónica, a Spanish telecom company that had services all over Europe. The O2 brand continued, and is still one of the major players in the market today alongside Vodafone, Three and EE (which is now owned by BT).
O2 currently has over 12 million pay monthly customers in the UK, which makes up just over half of its entire customer base. This lags behind EE’s 28 million, but that company was formed after a merger of two of O2’s competitors, T-Mobile and Orange.
O2 Customer Services
The O2 helpline is always looking to help you out, and are available Monday to Friday between 8am and 9pm. Saturday opening hours are between 8am and 8pm, whilst on Sunday they are only open between 8am and 6pm.
You may need to have all of your account details to hand before you call O2 contact number, as they have some stringent security measures in place before the customer service team will discuss your account with you.
