  • TheFootyTog Pete Burns (@TheFootyTog) reported from Much Hoole, England

    @AJPNEFC @PNEPhil @O2 @pnefc Problem is so many people in one place trying to access at the same time

  • PNEPhil Phil W (@PNEPhil) reported

    @sarahrobbo69 @O2 @pnefc @ThreeUK Slow is better than non existent!

  • AJPNEFC AJ (@AJPNEFC) reported

    @PNEPhil @O2 @pnefc Always difficult with any network. What I do which seems to work is change your internet to 3G not 4G when at the game. Some reason it seems to work better

  • sarahrobbo69 Sarah (@sarahrobbo69) reported

    @PNEPhil @O2 @pnefc Nope its always slow. Don't think it matters about the network, I'm on @ThreeUK

  • FluidMonkey J O E (@FluidMonkey) reported

    @O2 keep getting calls that hang up after 1 or 2 rings. Mostly from Sierra Leone and South Sudan. Make them stop please. #o2guru

  • HollyIlling Holly Illing (@HollyIlling) reported

    @PNEPhil @O2 @pnefc I can never access it during half time or when it’s busy 😩

  • patrick_harte86 Patrick (@patrick_harte86) reported

    @O2 worst service ever experienced in Birmingham branch. You are over priced and cannot wait to finish my contract with you

  • DaveFriday1 Dave Friday (@DaveFriday1) reported

    @O2 Just called the number you provided, they were no help at all. Please forward payment by the end of today

  • Muhammad_5haikh MUHAMMAD SHAIKH (@Muhammad_5haikh) reported

    @O2 Not bad of a deal @O2 considering got the Huwaei mate20 pro when it came out.

  • DJMumin Mumin (@DJMumin) reported

    @LozzaFox @EE I’m with @O2 and have no complaints about service. I pay about £75p/m for contract and buying the phone. Once the phone is paid off, that monthly amount will drop. And that is with a really good call and data plan.

  • CiaranBurkeSoc Ciaran Burke (@CiaranBurkeSoc) reported

    @leadthemidlands @O2 That’s awful service! We’ve been using giffgaff for a good while now and no complaints or unexpected charges!

  • Suzanne1066 Suzanne Marshall (@Suzanne1066) reported

    @LozzaFox @EE I too had that problem, moved to @O2, didn’t like how they charged for data so moved to @SkyUK, thinking about @giffgaff, but have @ThreeUK on my ipad which has better coverage wherever I go

  • mejuliejules Jules 🦄☕️ (@mejuliejules) reported

    @LozzaFox @EE Been with @O2 for years and never had any problems.

  • paulhodgson Paul Hodgson (@paulhodgson) reported

    Moving from @EE to @O2 due to bad reception in newcastle and OMG O2 sales and on boarding experience is dreadful. Absolute amateur hour. Confusing, errors, bad chat interactions... TERRIBLE design. Nervous now. Performance better be good or I’m off.

  • Pocimop Craig Symons (@Pocimop) reported from Boultham, England

    Well still no broadband from virgin and it turns out a phone mast isn’t working near me on @O2 even though I reported problems with the network 4 days ago. Shame their not this slow when it comes to taking my money when the bills are due.

  • Puretechreviews PureTechReviews (@Puretechreviews) reported

    @dave6018 @PedroClarke1 @EE @EE Will take the lead I was on @O2 there service is very good was with o2 for 10 years but just recently left as they don’t offer lots of things that EE offers is always behind the technology no Apple Watch with cellular I am on pay as you go on EE was not Accepted for contract

  • luketerenceb Luke Terence Batten (@luketerenceb) reported from Washington, England

    @O2 I’m really not happy with my phone contract it’s far to expensive would like to cancel free of charge !!!!! Fed up of this bad customer service

  • BeckyBrain Becky Brain (@BeckyBrain) reported

    Made a complaint with @O2 so they sort me a new phone, the guy tells me he’s transferred everything from my old phone and just found out i’ve lost 98% of my pictures 😭😭

  • fm84737 Fraser (@fm84737) reported

    @1122Caity @ThreeUK I was with @O2 for many years until maybe 7 years ago, overpriced network and nowhere near as good as @ThreeUK. Wouldn't go back to @O2 again.

  • StellaWYLeung Stella Leung (@StellaWYLeung) reported from Wandsworth, England

    @SkyHelpTeam My 4G network on @O2 is MUCH faster than your broadband service, when you promised to give me 17mbps. This has been happening for the past weeks.

  • OliviaFranceska Liv 🌸🌷 (@OliviaFranceska) reported from Islington, England

    @O2 hi, my data hasn’t been working all day! Please help

  • Lesley123B Lesley Brown (@Lesley123B) reported

    Been loyal customer to @ThreeUK for over 8 years. They basically just told me to leave if I am not happy with my upgrade! @O2 is offering me a better deal even though my other half has only been with them for 1 year! #logic #leavingThree

  • butlermills Laura Butler (@butlermills) reported

    @O2 Gets worse on the way into the station, temporarily comes back on and then drops again. I have a work phone too and it’s the same issue with that so it’s definitely the signal. It’s been longer on than off, it’s like the dark ages 😂

  • chrismasonic Christopher Mason (@chrismasonic) reported

    Service Akin To Stepping On A Dogs Egg @O2

  • benashford Ben Ashford (@benashford) reported

    @O2 The problem is when passing through the area, you drop from 4G to 3G and it never recovers until the signal drops entirely. The whole surrounding area seems very slow as a result.

  • capercailrunner Ryan (@capercailrunner) reported

    @O2 hi, no signal in my area for last hour, and bad reception all day before that

  • DaFluffMeister Mat Skipper-Banks (@DaFluffMeister) reported

    @O2 I know and I really don’t want to leave, it was just as bad at my old work place in Waterloo, but when I go to places in Kent and even Watford my signal is amazing and the 4G is so fast, but not in DA14 and DA15, EE seem to have the monopoly of speed around here at the mo

  • amyvictoriab Aimz (@amyvictoriab) reported

    @O2 I have experienced the WORST customer service ever from o2. Nearly 2 weeks since I upgraded, 10 phone calls later and still NO PHONE. Appalling.

  • Philly_Spurr Philly (@Philly_Spurr) reported

    @O2 My data is not working. It keeps saying I am offline unless on WiFi but I have over 9GB of data available.

  • Pro_Fluke Fluke (@Pro_Fluke) reported

    Serious post here. I've just found out @O2 has breached data protection on my account and shared my personal details with other customers for the past 4 years. Not sure if I need to seek legal advice or raise this further. Maybe @MarkEvansO2 might want to help and discuss this.

  • Audreyhaff Audrey Haffenden (@Audreyhaff) reported

    @O2 Your Not doing me a favour I pay you for the service

  • IeuanClissett IEUAN (@IeuanClissett) reported

    Note to self when getting a new phone ...avoid @o2 what a awful network!

  • Audreyhaff Audrey Haffenden (@Audreyhaff) reported

    @O2 If the role was reversed and I could pay you for the service, you wouldn’t just say ok work hard on it to restore your finances !!!

  • Audreyhaff Audrey Haffenden (@Audreyhaff) reported

    @O2 I’m not asking for compensation. I’m asking you for a refund of money I have paid you for a service im not able to use.

  • leahblackaby Leah Blackaby (@leahblackaby) reported

    @O2 Yes - and in the wider North West too - have colleagues in Liverpool area who have no signal either. Please just start looking into it - we're trying to work and it's causing a lot of hassle!

  • Audreyhaff Audrey Haffenden (@Audreyhaff) reported from Rye, England

    @O2 we’ve had no signal in the Tn31 area since Sunday now. Please advise status and I do hope you will refund charges due to this !

    13 days out of warranty and you can’t help a customer @o2, and advised by your own service team to buy out consumer contract or seek legal action... appalling! #o2

  • carol_dd6 Carol Dickinson (@carol_dd6) reported from Dudley, England

  • lisatibbett LC (@lisatibbett) reported

    @O2 Yes, have tried several. It looks connected the 3G symbol comes up but no internet. The phone makes calls it’s a WiFi problem only.

    @O2 I've had no network coverage in my flat in TW18 since 27/01 and the website says a further update on the issue will be available on 28/02. How do I make a complaint about this in writing as I have been unable to make calls for nearly 3 weeks

    @O2 I've contacted the online gurus 4 times this week and also been in store for help with my pay monthly data... yet my data issue STILL hasn't been resolved. I feel completely fobbed off every time and you're still taking money from me...

  • NikTheGeek NikTheGeek Ⓐ (@NikTheGeek) reported

    After being a customer for 8 years, getting a PAC code from @O2 is like pulling teeth. I started at 19:57 and it's now 20:45 and I still don't have it...

  • spike7307 Spike7307 (@spike7307) reported

    @O2 your Travel bolt-on is rubbish. Full 4G reception in the USA and it’s still slow as anything. Totally useless and not fit for purpose. Been ripped off at £4.99 per day!!

  • Emily_Mckenzie Emily Mckenzie (@Emily_Mckenzie) reported

    @simonlander01 @EE EE are terrible at rewards. I've been with them years & the only 'reward' they offer me is the opportunity to buy home broadband or tablets off them 👍Not really a reward. The free apple music and BT sports stuff is too niche and temporary as well. @O2 do it better with Priority.
