Can I put my sim card into any 02 phone?

Thinking of buying a new phone, if I buy an o2 payg phone can I stick my sim card straight in?

Yes, that should work.

 

(Very old O2 PAYG phones were sometimes locked not just to the network, but also to O2 PAYG - but that's not true nowadays).

Hi borophil,

It might be possible but you could ask the shop assistant if you can try it prior to the purchase. The other method is you could purchase an unlocked phone and which would permit you to use sims from other countries when on holiday. Much more flexability I would say.

Hope this helps

You will need to install the giffgaff internet settings but apart from that it should work just fine.

Yes you are correct, you can purchase any O2 phone and the giffgaff sim will be comparable, make sure you check the price of an unlocked one as sometimes the O2 version can be more expensive
