You most certainly can, i do it all the time with pre release and unique devices... 

If buying a used phone make sure it is networked unlocked. 

Current Phone: Motorola Razr 5g
I also have a Planet Computers Gemini

I work in IT as an Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration Tools Administrator (Office 365, Slack and much much more) and manage hardware both Mobile and Desktop / laptop, my desk is a bit like PC World

--
We are all customers and dont have access to any o2 accounts

Thank you for the quick reply, my current phone i bought it at an o2 shop and got a sim only deal but they don't do that now and i didn't want to pay monthly, and now i know i can buy one from elsewhere, many thanks again.

Yes, thats what I do.  Bear in mind certain functions may not be available ie 4G calling and Wifi-Calling to a non-o2 handset you intend to bring across as in some cases they need the O2 Firmware to be present on the new phone.
