O2 unveils 30-day notice SIM package

23 May 2008

O2 Ireland has introduced a new service whereby mobile phone customers can sign up for a post-paid product without having to sign a 12 or 18-month contract.

Under the O2 Clear SIM package, mobile phone users are required to give just 30 days notice if they wish to withdraw.

“Our customers have been telling us they would like to avail of the benefits offered by a post-pay plan without getting tied into a long-term contract,” Damian Devaney, director of marketing at O2 Ireland, explained.

“In response to this we have introduced O2 Clear SIM, which combines the flexibility of a 30-day rolling contract with the best value that O2 has ever offered in a post-pay price plan.”

Users who opt for the service can choose between six new O2 Clear post-pay price plan options, depending on their level and type of usage. For example, O2 Clear 50 gives 50 minutes and 50 texts for €15 per month line rental; O2 Clear 175 gives 175 minutes and 100 texts with €30 line rental; O2 Clear 350 comes with 350 minutes and 150 texts, €50 line rental; O2 Clear 600 includes 600 minutes and 250 texts, €75 line rental.

In addition to the free texts and minutes that come as standard with the new O2 Clear price plan, customers can also benefit from other support services now available with post-pay price plans.

These include O2 Spend Alerts, a new text service that alerts customers when they have reached a particular amount on their bill and O2’s popular SIM backup service that enables customers to save their contacts online in the event that they lose their phone.
