Essentially, o2 offers two types of SIM cards: Prepaid and Postpaid.

Prepaid is very flexible, as you only buy credit for your SIM card whenever you need it. However, you also do not get as much data as you could with a postpaid plan. These are O2’s current prepaid plans:

  • O2 my Prepaid 9 Cent: 0.00 GB | 9 Cents per minute or SMS | 99 Cents per day for data – 0.00€ / 4 weeks
  • O2 my Prepaid Basic: 0.15 GB | 9 Cents per minute or SMS – 1.99€ / 4 weeks
  • O2 my Prepaid S: 3.5 GB | unlimited minutes and SMS to all German numbers | EU-Roaming included – 9.99€ / 4 weeks
  • O2 my Prepaid M: 6.5 GB | unlimited minutes and SMS to all German numbers | EU-Roaming included – 14.99€ / 4 weeks
  • O2 my Prepaid L: 12.5 GB | unlimited minutes and SMS to all German numbers | EU-Roaming included – 19.99€ / 4 weeks
  • O2 my Prepaid Max: 999 GB | unlimited minutes and SMS to all German numbers | EU-Roaming included – 69.99€ / 4 weeks

You can buy more o2 credit online or in a German supermarket, gas station or other shops.

Postpaid is usually 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.

    Hallo, kann ich mit einem Erste-Devisenkonto und einer ungarischen Bankkarte unbegrenztes Internet für mein Mobilgerät kaufen?

    I just got to Berlin and bought an O2 prepaid SIM but I am told it is only valid for a month. How do I get a longer term one?
