you can create an account on the o2 web site and find out on there, but it is not always up to date so just use it as a guide .

Default Easy to check

I have three O2 contracts and use the V220 phone.

The easy way to check you usage is to reset the timer on your mobile phone at the begining of your billing month (mine is on the 6th of the month). Then all I need to do is go to the timers part on my mobile and I know exactly how long I've been using the phone for.

Piece of cake

Don't know if it depends on which o2 tariff you are on ?

eg Saw this on o2 website for tariff

O2 Unlimited tariff

Check your airtime balance

Find out how much airtime credit you have remaining, whenever you like.
To check your balance use Hotkey 2 or key *#10# then press the call button and your calltime balance will be shown on your display. Alternatively dial 4444 free from your mobile to hear your balance.

Check your free monthly allowance

Text BALANCE to 20202 free from your mobile and find out how much of your free allowance is still available.

RING 202 from your handset-option 1 and ask the adviser-there is a 3 day delay in the billing system but it gives you an idea-they can tell u inclusive allowances left and also overspends (non free items, not inc in free allowances)
Loan-3600 only 24 months of payments to go!!!
All debt consolodated and cards destroyed!!
