To get them go to
so nowone has taken up the offer i take it ?
Is this for real?
no its a joke! what do you take me for why would i post it if it was fake.
I've had no thanks whatsover for this and i bet people have applied for their free sims.
sorry welsh boy - what can I say?
ive done it ....no problem
whats the catch?
no catch ucas is something to do with students and they get free stuff sometimes and we are just having some of that free stuff.
I got a free sim from O2 during one of the previous promotions posted here. Absolutely no catches and no spam after applying. Very impressed with the coverage so far as well.
The first decent reply to this thread thanks.
Just ordered 2 of them!
No probs mmahmed.
Ordered 2, thanks for the info.
Are they genie?
yep they are genie.
I have seen a number of offers like this, but don't really understand...
Do you get a new 'phone number allocated with each sim card ?
What is the call tarriff ?
Can you make calls from / to abroad ?
I have requested a card for when I go on holiday (States), so that I can use a spare 'phone rather than my work 'phone - which will keep ringing with work related stuff (not what you want when bumming around California). Does this sound like it will work (subject to me getting a spare 'phone unlocked to work with O2) ?
(oh, and by the way Welshboy - if this works - well done )
I've just asked for 2
Thanks for the info, welshboy, just ordered 2 sims.
Pity they don't throw in a coupla free phones to go with them.... only kidding, they have to make money somehow, and offers like this are pretty decent when they come along.
Thanks for the heads up
Nice one welshboy!
I ordered 2 sim cards from this promotion and also ordered 2 from a previous promotion posted in this forum and guess what? No sim cards have arrived!!
They are cheap enough on ebay anyway.
Likewise - so can anyone shed any light on the above please?
1) Yes you do get a new number with each sim.
2) The tariff is whatever 02's latest tariff is, you won't get stuck on any tariff and can move to any O2 tariff should any better ones come along.
3) Yeah the sim should work fine in any opened tri-band phone whilst in the USA. If your company phone is on contract then the sim will probs work directly in that as most contract phones are not locked.
Now a question from me, as anyone actually received sims from this offer? I haven't
Are they not pay as you go
Yes they are "pay as you go" but you can still put a "pay as you go" into a contract phone which then simply turns the contract phone into a pay as you go whilst this sim is in it, but it will have the new number so if you don't need your contract phone whilst on hols it can just be used instead on buying another as a spare.
Not yet ......
I did pop into the local 02 shop the other day and they confirmed it was a genuine offer but had no idea how long the cards might take to arrive
My SIM from the previous offer took ages to arrive, but did turn up eventually.
Ive had mine 6 of them
My friend who told me about this offer has recieved his 6.If you go to this site (http://freesim.o2.co.uk/messages.php) you too can order up to 6 of them, offer is only to one household.Be patient though as 02 state that they can take up to 28 days to arrive.
Got my sims this morning, does anyone know how to unlock a 3310e from orange network?
Yay they came today
