In Germany, o2 is definitely one of the most popular mobile network providers and also one of the most affordable ones. The network coverage is pretty good in major cities and for other areas you should check the coverage map before deciding on any plan. Below we provided an overview of o2’s current promotions for smartphone (both iPhone Xs and Samsung Galaxy S10e) so that you can compare them and figure out which one would suit your needs best. If you rather have an overview of all carriers, see our data plan overview, which also includes other major carriers.

These offers will save you between €10 and €20 per month, that means total savings of up to €480 if you get one of these plans. Note that all of these plans have an installation cost of €39.99.

❗️Please note that these offers are only valid until September 2, 2019 ❗️


⚡️iPhone Xs PROMOTION: O2 heavily discounted the current Apple iPhone models iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max. You can get the Xs model with 64GB storage with a 10GB data plan for only €52.49 per month (see here, use our discount code IPXS-FM-AUG), while only paying a one-time fee of €25 for the phone. For €5 more per month, you will get double the data allowance (20GB) (see here, use discount code IPXS-MB-AUG for boosted data).

Postpaid in this case is a 24-month contract, which means you need to commit to o2 for 2 years and you can only cancel your contract if you leave Germany to permanently live in a different country. Therefore, postpaid is a little less flexible, but usually also gives you more for your money. Sometimes, you can select a “flex-option”, which means that you can cancel your contract every month, but in turn you have to pay a higher monthly fee (usually 5€ more per month).

o2 Germany also offers a free bank account with a special perk: For every Euro you spent with your Mastercard, you get 1 MB bonus data that you can redeem with your o2 contract. Find out more about this offer here.


If you just need mobile data for your tablet or laptop, you can look into the o2 my Data plans. These SIM cards you can use for your tablet or computer (by using a surf stick), without using your smartphone data. Below you can see an overview of the different plans.
