MY Samsung G800 has just died, which is a shame since the phone was well suited to me. I've had the G800 since Jan08 on a 17month (yeah silly i know) contract, before that 12months with a D900, 12 months with a D600, 12 months with a D500 all from O2 which i've been pretty happy with. So big Samsung fan, and kind of liked being with O2. Thing is it's broken, phone all lit up, blank screen, rumbles now and then, and it was sudden, fine one minute, now gone to meet the calculators in the sky. With it being like this i've decided not claim on my insurance (which is free on a LLoyds student account) because they'll want it for 30 days while they attempt to fix it and from others experience it never comes back a-ok. So i'm going to ring O2 tomorrow and tell them its broken, i have no insurance and i want a new 18month contract with a new phone of some type (get to that in a mo) or i'm just going to cancel the direct debits. Can i do that? I know i've got 3/4 months left, but the last time i signed a contract with them was over 5 years ago, so really it was a verbal agreement, worth nothing right? I know people used to play this trick all the time, but i thought i'd wait to do it when i need too, and i need it now imo. If i can do that (if not im going to anyway and they'll have to take me to court for the £100) then i need a new phone. I've been with both Samsung and O2 for a very long time, i'm open to suggestions. Tariff wise, 300mins, 500txts or pref unlimited. No insurance, £30pm, max 18month contract.... ...top of the line phone. Thanks for reading, all thoughts welcome.
