I am having a serious problem with O2.
In June 2009 I purchased an iPhone 3GS from the O2 store in Camden. I enrolled on to an 18 month contract and paid £181 instore for the handset on an 18 month contract at £35 per month, I also paid £9 over the phone to O2 to come out of my previous contract 6 weeks early.
In theory, my contract expires in December 2010.
However, O2 tell me their systems show my contract as a 24 month contract and no record of an 18 month contract, making the expiration of the contract June 2011.
O2 customer services refuse to help unless I can produce my copy of the contract (which I have lost) and say that I must take the matter up with the Camden O2 store where the phone was purchased. I have made numerous calls to the store, however no one ever answers the phone, I have sent them a letter via recorded delivery asking for assistance, this was not responded to.
I requested someone from O2 customer services make contact with the store and eventually someone named Adam at O2 did call the store and called me back to say that the O2 store's system shows a 24 month contract and they are not willing to do any more unless I produce the paper contract.
I'll just add at this point that I live nowhere near Camden now so to go to the store would be a massive expense and a full day's excursion.
What are my options here, I am pretty certain that it was an 18 month contract I signed, so I was thinking of sending the Camden store a Subject Access Request for any digital info and paper data, as presumably they would need to produce a copy of the paper contract showing 18 months? Would they need to provide this info?
Any help appreciated.
