General frequently asked questions

  • Registering for Priority

    1. My mobile code never arrives. Why?

    Firstly, double check you're putting the right mobile number in.

    Then check you've got a signal. If you have, ask for another code.

    If it still doesn't arrive, it could be that our code-sending service is swamped. In which case it's best to come back a bit later and try again.

    2. I'm with O2, but when I try to sign up, it says I'm not. Why?

    If you've got an O2 mobile and you're putting that number in, it might be because you transferred the number from another network recently and our database hasn't caught up yet. It should work in a few days, at most.

    If you don't have an O2 mobile and you're with us for home broadband, make sure you're using the mobile number you gave us when you signed up. If you signed up quite recently, it can take 14 days to add you to our database, so you might need to wait a few days. Please note if you are a home broadband customer you will only be able to access our Priority Moments and Priority Tickets offers which are available on this website.

    3. I've got my mobile code, but it doesn't work. Why not?

    First, check you're putting the right code in. A 1 can look like an I, for instance, or a 2 like a Z.

    You can only use each code once, so make sure you haven't used it already.

    If it's not that, ask for a new one.

    If the new code doesn't work either, it's probably us. Our system might have gone down. Check back in a little bit and hopefully it'll be up and running again.

    4. I'm registered but my password's not working. Why not?

    Are you definitely using your Priority password? It's different from the one you use for My O2.

    If it's still not working, change your password.

    5. I've forgotten my password.

    Don't forget that your Priority password is different from the one you use for My O2.

    If it's still not working, change your password.

    6. I'm trying to sign in but I keep getting an error message.

    Are you putting in the right mobile number and password? If you've got a mobile with us, you should be putting in your O2 mobile number.

    If you've got O2 broadband, it should be the mobile number you gave us when you signed up. It doesn't have to be an O2 mobile. Remember the non O2 mobile will only work on this website for Priority Tickets and Priority Moments and not on the mobile apps.

    If you've changed your mobile number since you got O2 broadband, you'll need to email us your new details.

    And it has to be a mobile, not a landline.

    If it's not either of those things, the system might be down. Try again in a few minutes.

    It might be that you haven't actually signed up for Priority yet. It's different to your My O2 account - you have to have a separate username and password for Priority. You can register here.

    If you're definitely registered, it might just be that the system's down. Try again in a little while.

    If nothing works, drop us a line. We'll get back to you as soon as we can.

    Or you can call:

    4445 from your O2 mobile if you're on Pay & Go

    202 from your O2 mobile if you're on Pay Monthly

    0800 230 0202 (free from landlines) if you've got O2 broadband. Or email customer.service@o2broadband.co.uk.

    7. How to disconnect from Facebook & Twitter

    To disconnect from Facebook login into your Facebook account and go to Account > Privacy Settings > Edit your settings (under applications and websites) select Priority and then click on Remove Application.

    To disconnect form Twitter: Login into your Twitter account and go to Settings > Connections. Then revoke access for "Priority".

  • Availability of Priority Tickets

    There are only ever a limited number available, so it's likely that all the Priority Tickets have been sold. You can try and get General Tickets instead.

    11. When I go to buy tickets, they have always sold out. I don't feel like a priority as I missed out on tickets.

    We really hate to disappoint, but tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority Tickets give O2 customers the chance to buy tickets up to 48 hours before general release.

    The Priority Tickets are still exclusive to O2 customers. They will be available throughout the offer period or until they are sold out. Priority Tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. You can also try to buy General Tickets.

    Priority Tickets don't guarantee the best seats. However, when booking your Priority Tickets, you'll have the option to choose where to sit from the range of seats available.

    16. I bought Level 4 tickets during the Priority Ticket sale period, which were the 'best available'. Why are there better General Tickets available now?

    A wide range of seat types are allocated as Priority Tickets for each show. O2's Priority Ticket offer does not always guarantee access to the best seats. If you don't like the 'best available' Priority Tickets, you can try to buy alternative tickets through the general public sale.
