If I order a new sim deal (same number) do I get charged straight away?

I still have 17 days left on my contract but wanted to change to a better tarriff now. Will I be charged immediately or when the current contract ends? Thanks.

If you change tariffs now then you will be charged a month in advance & possibly a pro rata allowance for the few weeks

You’ll just pay the equivalent of 17 days extra of the new tariff which will be added to your next bill.

nil desperandum. When you take things for granted, the things you are granted, are taken away.
