New phone

I am currently on a pay monthly sim plan.
I would like a new handset as my old one has seen better days
Is it possible to add a handset to a sim only plan?

Re: New phone

@Jm4 Just buy a sim free phone and put your sim in. If you need a different size sim for your new phone, pop into an O2 store and they'll swap it for you for free.

Yes you can @Jm4

After 3 months on a simo plan you can upgrade to a full contract.

You can't just add a handset to an existing sim only plan. However as long as your payments have been on time and up to date you can take out a new Refresh contract without further credit  checks. Minimum period is three months on a sim only contract.
