Web and WiFi running out soon on 3G


Active Member
Recently got a text from o2 stating that my web and wifi will run out on the 17th of October etc etc.

I currently get free texts from topping up £10 a month, if I was to buy one of those simplicity sims, could I still keep my free texts and get free browsing?


Edit:What is the difference between the free internet and the "Web and Wifi" for £10 a month with my iPhone?

Also can I use those sims with my iphone?

Do you lose anything at all if you get a new sim and transfer your number?

Edit 2:
If you've already got a Pay & Go sim card with O2 and want to move to O2 Text & Web, text TEXTANDWEB to 21300 for free.

Can I do this on my sim card?

Sorry for all the questions. :p

Do you have one of the PAYG iPhone SIM's that came with the free unlimited data and WiFi?

If so, am I not right in saying the free data and WiFi carries on if you top up a certain amount each month (£10?)

Yeah I do, I mentioned it in my post. ;)

And I would have to pay £10 extra on top of my £10 top up.

Which would only give me 500 texts when I could get unlimited and unlimited internet for an extra £5.

So can I use that on my iPhone 3G PAYG sim?

I just received my free sims from O2. Now although I followed the link on the O2 site, the SIM cards have a different offer:

Top up £15 and get 500 txts and unlimited internet .£30 for unlimited txts.
