Also my contract IS due for renewal in the summer, but I'm paying far too much at the moment, I got my contract when I used a lot more minutes/texts. Would it be better for me to downgrade before or after I upgrade, if that makes sense. Also, if I downgrade before this will probably affect what phone I get, but if I wait until after will I have to wait the full 9 months to be able to downgrade my account?
Thanks in advance for any input!

As for downgrading now, you might as well IMHO. The price of a new phone depends entirely on the new contract your signing up to, not your old one.
However, as you want a lower amount of minutes you'll no doubt sign up to a contract where the handset price is high. You'll need to calculate whether the saving on the handset taking out a higher contract than you need, is better value, than paying extra for the phone and starting on your desired level of contract. As you say you would have to wait 9 months to downgrade after signing a new contract.

Hmm I'm just not sure! They have this new "Package Builder" on the shop now, and I would really love to go with one of them. As part of those contracts you can now get a free bolt on, so I would pick the unlimited web bolt on which would save me £7.50 a month. Plus I could get twice as many text messages (technically, I already get the same amount, but it's with the "online double messages") and only 200 mins less (I use nowhere near 800!!!!!) for £5 pounds less, which sounds like not very much but without that other £7.50 that's a saving of £12.50 a month for more or less what I have!! Am I wrong in thinking that's unfair? Would they be able to "downgrade" my contract to this? Or would I have to cancel my contract at full term and take up a new one?
