    Hi

    I have just bought a W800i from O2. I get 50 mins a month and 200 text for £19 per month. I am very happy with the phone and the package.

    However today I hear that Telefonica will buy O2. Does anyone know what Telefonica's service is like? Should I stay with the pacakge I have got or change. I am just worried that things will change in a few months and i will be stuck with an operator I don't want to use


    Today is my last day to send the phone back as part of the 14 day return policy so a quick reply would be good.



    Thanks

    Rich

    1) No-one has bought anyone yet. The o2 plc board wil be recommending the buyout to the shareholders but that's it so far

    2) Telefonica have said in the pres release o2 would carry on exactly as they do now so no worries about your network provider.

    The shops being closed for 3 hours at lunchtime may be an issue though....

    Don't worry you must have agreed to a 12 / 18 month contract, if they decide to change your contract in this period they have to let you opt out if your not happy with the changes.

    It happened to me on vodafone, 2 months after taking an upgrade they decided they wanted to change my contract, one of the options was to terminate the contract which I took and kept the 2 month old upgrade phone, I then went and took out a new contract online with a better deal and another new phone.

    I on O2 pay as you go and if this take over happens, then I am dropping O2.

    The reason I went with O2 in the first place was because it was British, if it is now going to be Spanish, then I rather do with out a mobile.

    I am getting fed up with everything British going to foreign companies

    Thats a nice attitude to have, but you may have to think again the way things are going - as there will be nothing left to buy!

    From the materials your house is made of, the gas and electric you use, the clothes you wear, the food you eat, the car etc etc - its all profits for foreign companies

    With regards to O2, I can't see any changes.

    BTW, I have a couple of those £19 /m contracts but I have 50 minutes and 500 texts. Have they changed it?

    It was the best value contract I could find for frequent texters - ie kids
