O2 offers ‘bolt ons’ for iPhone plans

O2 is now offering “Bolt Ons” for its iPhone customers. The extras, all of which are priced at £7.50 per month and are meant to supplement existing coverage, include unlimited O2-to-O2 calls, unlimited anytime texts, unlimited weekend calls, unlimited fixed line calls, and an extra 200 anytime minutes. A note on the O2 site says “All our unlimited Bolt Ons are subject to an excessive usage policy.” In addition, the company is also offering “Discount Country” plans for £3 a month, which allow for lower call and text rates to the selected area. Discounts are available for the USA and Canada (9p/min), Australia or New Zealand (14p/min), South Africa, Turkey, India, Pakistan or Bangladesh (28p/min), and China (43p/min). Finally, the company is offering the My Europe Extra add-on, which allows customers to “receive calls for free and make calls to the UK and other included European countries for 25p/min” when traveling in Europe or Spain. My Europe Extra runs £10 per month, while the same coverage in Spain, which is listed separately, runs £5 per month.

Wow….and I thought we had it bad in the U.S. My favorite line, “All unlimited Bolt Ons subject to an excessive use fee”. WTF? Oh and you left off the plan that allows you to use the “4” key….subject to an excessive use fee of course.

You can keep on bolting things on O2 but I won’t be sucked in.

I suspect many won’t be tempted to make the iPhone even more expensive to own….
